I had the feeling that they were doing a great favor to me in serving the coffee. The coffee was good, very good indeed, and the sweeties were good as well (passion fruit dessert and a lemon pie for my wife). But the service, not...More

We've enjoyed breakfast croissants and pastries there many times. Has outside seating, excellent food and beverages, but tends to get very crowded at times, because it's small and popular. Parking in Rice Village is also a problem, but if you can catch this place when...More
