I didn't eat here this time, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to buy some coffee (freshly ground while I waited) to use for brewing coffee in my room. Saffron's the best.

Pop in here for a western style coffee; latte, espresso etc. A nice blend and they do latte art and serve takeaway cups. Free wi fi and they also sell food. They make other products with the coffee like bars of soap for detox.
