Introduced to it some years ago. Now we wouldn't go anywhere else. The staff will modify the menu to suit you and the fudge that comes with your coffee adds to the experience.

I had a short morning visit to this cafe, but could help notice very stylish appearance and cosy feeling of the place. The location and menu makes it a good choice for a traveller.
