Came for a breakfast on Saturday.
Before we could have a look at the menu the waiter came to explain what they had for breakfast. He didn’t tell us that the items were for two people, so we ordered two things. We canceled the pancakes once we found out, but the waiter was hesitant at first.
We had to ask for cutlery two times before we got any.
The MYC Plate was good, but far too little bread for the amount of sauces.
People around us also seemed to complain about missing cutlery and dry salad.
Our drinks were forgotten and we had to order for a second time.
They don’t accept cards but they only told us when we wanted to pay and we so we had to go to an ATM, of which there are plenty in Frankfurt luckily.
The single bathroom was both too small and not enough for the amount of customers visiting the place so you get interrupted by someone knocking on your door while having your peaceful quiet time in the restroom.
They prices are way too high for what was offered!

Great lunch, innovative cakes & desserts. Nice, casual place to meet friends and have some lunch or dessert. I'll be going there for breakfast, soon.

I loved the place and I loved the staff there. But coffee is simply not their thing.
I honestly think Lavazza should be banned from coffee places, and this one in particular came together with bad brewing processes. Flavourless, excessively bitter and burnt.
Cakes looked yummy though...
P.s. I don't find it honest to bring and charge the big Americano if someone just orders an Americano, it would probably be better to ask ;)

Sorry that you didn’t like our americano but this is not a brewed coffee it comes from the machine and we didn’t charge you for a big americano. We have only 2 sizes, a small one or a regular one and if you order at the deskfront and you don’t choose you will get a regular one. And honestly it’s not the end of the world to pay 3,50 instead of 2,50€.
Please tell us the next time your choice before.
Just come in again and I will give you an americano for free.

We came here today and enjoyed the “refill breakfast” for 16,90€ per person. This includes a smoothie, a Turkish tea, different dips (e.g. humus), bread, cheese, sucuk and sweet dips (e.g. honey). The stuff was unbelievable kind and the music was a blast.

We will definitely come back.
