I'm absolutely in love with the style of this place, very unique. Staff is nice and gentle. I super recommend the apple pie. Personally I think that is a bit expensive but maybe it worth :)

This café in Vandaleur Street is ideal for a catch up with friends. It is comfortable and unhurried with a good range of snacks and drinks. There is usually a good display of handicrafts too. I love going there for a break during shopping trips.

We stopped in for lunch on a friend's suggestion while passing through and were pretty disappointed with the food. It sounded lovely on the menu but was quite simple tasting, not amazing ingredients, and over priced. It was fine but I had high hopes that...More
