Fantastic place. Service is really good. Recommend a capuccino. What makes this place different is that besides an excellent coffee, you pay according with what you think it is worthy.

In a city starved of good coffee, this is an oasis. Comparable in quality to my London favourites, this is worth a visit if you are finding the excuses for coffee served elsewhere a letdown.
