Fabulous breakfast and lunch at this nice little cafe. We tried several different breakfast items and everything was delicious. Everything is fresh, the fruit plate is my favourite. The coffee is very good. Friendly service. We highly recommend.

This place was just across from the hostel I stayed in. It had the nicest people and the most amazing breakfasts! They had a selection of breakfasts from all across the world and some absolutely delicious cheese. The coffee is amazing the smoothies fresh, and there is even a selection of books to read. I didn't even bother going anywhere... More
