Tucked away in the Brauhaus arcade this quaint little coffee shop serves a very nice cup of coffee, the service is very good and prices are in line with most of the other cafe's in town. Excellent selection of cakes.

Cute little cafe with outdoor seats where you can do some people watching. Great service, wonderful lattes and cheesecake. Only reason I didn't give it a 5* was it allows smoking on the patio and we had to move indoors to avoid the smoke blowing our way on the small patio.

Limited menu but lovely food. My daughter and I had warm rolls which were lovely. I had a rooibos tea and she had a excellent strawberry milkshake. I recommend a chocolate cupcake!

Staff excellent, food first rate, excellent drinks and super coffee - what's not to like? A must visit establishment - as we say, 'does what it says on the tin'.

We had lunch at this cafe. Lovely outdoor seating to enjoy the sun. The homemade rolls were delicious, as was the carrot cake. It's situated on a pleasant shopping passage. Well worth a visit.

Lovely setting. A little bit too small if you are in a big group. People are allowed to smoke on the outside tables. This is very disturbing especially when the wind blows and their smoke blows on top of you. They don't have a big menu but what they serve is good. Their Coffees are excellent. Their cakes are very... More
