This was the only place in the area open in the morning for coffee. The food was average although the service was good. The bread and baked goods are fresh. Full breakfast is served here.

You've got to try these baked goods! Bread, cookies, chocolate croissants... I've had work team meetings here and it's a nice out of the way place to gather a few people around some coffee and yummy baked goods. Can't go wrong.

As the title said...average. Cold, bland food...Waiters were slow, and did not seem to care. Heard a lot about this place , but it let me down, sorry guys wont be back.

Some of the best bread in CT but let down by very poor service in the cafe. We went in for bread from the bakery and decided to stay for a coffee. After twenty minutes and no coffee we left. The cafe was not busy and there were probably more staff than customers

cheap, tasty, marcelinho's soups are never a let down. Its probably the total opposite! the dutch pea soup is my favorite, comes with a warm freshly baked bread and real butter. Amazing!!

We stayed in a hotel next to this nice restaurant and found it by accident... But it has the best breakfast in town! The german bread is perfect, the service very friendly and the pricea absolutely ok. We came here every day! Nice atmosphere and a lot of Stammgäste ;-)
