I always visit the breakaway for an awesome burger with twister fries, great service, and the many great drinks. Beware though that's almost always busy and pickpockets are everywhere.

Had a desperado and played some pool. The interior is pretty cool and atmosphere is not bad at all. Might pop in again later some time for a game or two!

Thank you for your awesome review! 20 years is a long time… Lets say next meeting in a year or so ;). We’ll keep the drinks cold for you.

For the price not so good. The burger meat was very small, the milkshake was not icy more like stilldrink. It is not an eating place, more of a hangout-have-drink-place.
