Really good place to chill out, read a good book, in a calm atmosphere.
Perfectly placed, just in the main street !
Sometime the wifi can be bas, but books are better anyway.
The ham sandwich is amazing as well !!

We went back a couple of times after finding this gem of a cafe. We had breakfast the first time and just drinks the other times. Our guest house's wifi was rubbish and the staff here didn't mind us sitting in the cafe for quite a while, while we caught up with what was going on back home. Much appreciated. Loved the feel of the cade, with its books and great coffee.

since i am a devoted multilingual reader, i was happy to find a place like this in LPr. their exchange offer is very ok [bring 1, take 1, pay 1$]. i had a cappuccino twice that was not more than ok [Illy]. sorry to say that to the Zurich owner with her cute dog.
for non-smokers like me, sitting on the terrace can be, dependeing on the other guests, a pain in the nose!

With very intellectual owner and friendly staff, you will feel yourself like in your home. Everything is very delicious and well-presented. The cafe also gives you a chance for book exchange.
