Convenient to where we were staying, quick and friendly service. We were quickly served coffee whilst we were waiting for our breakfast. Generous servings and very tasty, just what you need before a day of exploring the city.

Always greeted with a warm smile. Good food and a nice buzz of people. A nice touch is that I go once a week and they remember my coffee and food order
