The portions are huge! I love the way they serve water in this cafe. The staff are efficient and friendly. It is well worth trying out as it has a lot of options.

We went in here in a hurry just before a film. Explained to the server that we had limited time. She was really friendly and our food came within 10 minutes. Lasagne came with fries or a salad at €10.50, so prices are quite reasonable....More
