It opens early morning so makes it a good place for breakfast. The decor is like a old style house converted into a coffee shop with wooden lounge chairs and big center tables. They have beautiful cats to give you company during your meals. Great combos available for breakfast.

We stumbled upon this cafe and managed to easily find a seat. The cafe offers a range of delicious foods and drinks (we loved the crepes and coffee). The cafe also has a gallery and small shop, which are worth a look.
