A must if your in the area. The range of desserts is amazing. My party of four each tried a different one. The gluten free brownie was amazing. The Sacher torte was the best in Europe. So glad we stopped!!!

What a good job places like this exist when boarding accommodation decides it's 'end of the season', and close their restaurant! Had a panani, cake and coffee:all excellent, well priced and served promptly and in a friendly manner. Lovely atmosphere. We'll worth a visit.

Good italian coffee (!), good cakes. You can stay for a while and nobody say you have to leave... And if you order a cake, they ask you for whipped cream – that‘s the way i like it ;-)
