We hadn't planned to eat something but we just couldn't resist entering Pois Cafe. The decoration is very vintage, the staff nice and the food delicious and diversified. I really recommend you this restaurant if you want something healthy and fresh.

I was really disappointed with this place, given the great reviews online and the lines of people waiting out front. Firstly, the atmosphere is very laidback which is cool, you have to share large tables and find a seat wherever you can. My husband and...More
