We had a decent sandwich in the sun outside. We waited sort of a long time and got almost what we ordered (wrong bread), but after waiting that long, we just ate our sandwiches.

Fell upon this amazing coffee shop after visiting District 6 Museum. Decided to have lunch -chefs special: prawn and calamari wrap with tabbouleh creamy humus and rocket. It came with a side salad and when first delivered we thought we could have easily shared (generous serving) but on the first mouthful so pleased we didn't as we devoured every delicious... More

We had ordered and paid for a pot of tea, coffee and a cold drink at the counter then had to wait a long time for them. What's more when they arrived we were given a bill to pay! Aside from this blunder, this place is quirky and a nice place to gather - a pity it only has one... More

This coffee shop sells Black Insomnia coffee, which we feel is truly the best coffee around, the waiters where knowledgable and the service was good. We had some cake to eat and it was wonderful! Tasty cakes that has the right texture and moistness. This spot is a perfect place to grab a quick bite to eat!

Wow... a place with such potential! We made our own platter which is one of the options on the menu. Two of the 6 ingredients we wanted they didnt have, i.e. pancetta and goat's cheese. Then when we finally received our platter and they made a mistake with the ingredients having added two cheeses we didnt ask for and forgetting... More

Nice place. Nice vibe. The light is always incredibly beautiful. The object for sale are a plus that give a "cabinet of curiosity" atmosphere. Waiters are very kind and smiley. They look happy which makes it a happy place. I love having the curry but many other things are apealing.

Thank CTandyou
