Busy place with a cool vibe, be prepared to queue or awkwardly hover to get a table. Yummy bagels with a fun twist but limited dairy-free, gluten-free or vegetarian options. Overall great brunch spot with wifi and friendly staff.

Really good coffee from an espresso machine and not filter coffee. Also, fresh juice was good. Next to the coffee is a bakery with different croissant selections which are delicious. Very good start into the day. Team is great.
