Actually, the place is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch AND you can buy bread and patisserie. Especially recommended in the weekend!

I came alone and sat at the shared group table with a good book. I had a detox breakfast (egg, gluten-free bread, fruit and yogurt, green tea and a detox juice) and some mini Dutch pancakes. It was delicious, simple, filling and healthy. The staff was super friendly and attentive and let me stay there for several hours to read... More
