We sat here for coffee and lemonade. Atmosfere was great, it is in the city centre and right next to the bridge. Strawberry lemonade was an absolutely fantastic! There were even little parts of strawberries and it wasn't too sweet nor too sour.

Lovely river-side cafe/restaurant.. great food and service, excellent value for all. Soup, salad and sandwiches were all delicious, quick and very reasonably priced. Their donut-topped milkshake was the winner for the children!
