This place is so cosy - weather it is winter, spring, summer or autumn - it is always great! Brunch is delicious and the staff is very friendly. When it's sunny, they have tables outside and although the place is between two roads, it is...More

We had a really nice brunch ordering a plate with salmon and avocado and another with eggs bacon cheese and cakes. Everything was really good and enjoyed our meals. The service was nice however the price a bit high.

How slow it can be? Been here a few times, gave them the last chance today, but the service is horribly slow and weird. The male waiter is like from the other planet, waited 20 minutes to order a drink, the lady served us after...More

I was their for lunch with my friend who lives not far from that place. I had green salad with avocado and my friend had soup of the day. Both were wonderful. Highly recommended for lunch in that area. Staff is very nice and helpful

도로변에 위치하고 있어 찾기에 편하다. 서비스직원들이 생각보다 친절하지 않은건 사실이다. 커피도 보통수준이며 케잌이나 디저트가 꽤 맛있는 편이다. 브런치로 이 장소를 택하기에는 가격대비 별로 추천하고 싶지않다. 가끔 차한잔을 하거나 커피를 하기엔 좋은곳일 뿐이다. 감탄이나 와 좋다라는 기대를 하기엔 충분하지 않은 곳이며 꽤 가까운 거리에 살고 있다면...More

I have a small twinstroller and we spotted a good, calm corner to sit down. Although the place was half empty, the waiter came to complain about the stroller. I tried to show that we are not blocking anyone, but no - the stroller should...More
