If you like big traditional breakfast with lots of black coffee this is your place. You have to go at least once in your life. Lots of history here and you won't leave hungry that is for sure.

It's more like a local café, so I don't believe you need to do that. It wasn't that crowded when we arrived but I don't suppose it would hurt to call and ask. Enjoy! : )
