We passed by this cafe-restaurant and its beautiful decoration invited us to enter. They serve cappuccinos and desserts very well prepared, in addition the service is very pleasant and the owner speaks English very well.

Good service, food was fresh. Quantity was small for price. Ordered coconut curry and it did not taste anything like Thai curry or coconut curry. The menu indicated it was spicy, it was not at all. The spaghetti and garlic bread was so so. The...More
