Visited with a friend for dinner on December. Both ate the excellent and tasteful hamburgers. In the towncenter nearby market and an underground station. I would recommend it either for food or coffee.

Hello! I spent here one afternoon on the terrace. I had a cappucino and a cream soup. The staff moved quickly. Also it was a quiet afternoon so I could just relax and read a bit.
