We had lunch here. Portions were big, options were basically some bread or pasta with salad. Also gluten-free bread available. Cakes looked delicious but didn't have any room left for dessert.

Josephine makes no pretense to being fine dining. It offers sandwiches (hot and cold), quiche, and a few other items. It makes these competently and serves them promptly. Prices modest, service efficient.

Café Josephine is just like little Paris on Vene Street, at the gates of the Dominican Monastery. We have real coffee beverages, cakes and truffles. The café also offers small savoury snacks.
