It's a friendly cafe with good wholesome food at reasonable prices. Pizza has a thin and crispy crust, just the way I like it, and the soup's thick and creamy. Comfortable place for a simple meal.

Friendly, lively atmosphere. Pleasant staff, great pizza and excellent tapas. Best patatas bravas ever! Busy with customers of all ages. But worth waiting for a table. Selection of books and board games available.
