Very nice place with some really good coffee. They have a proper coffee machine not one of those that you press a button and makes a coffee. The atmosphere is also very nice. I recommend 👌

😂😂😂 how to sum up this place?!? Honestly save your money. REALLY disinterested staff, the mango ice cream had crystals in it and the house cake inedible. Was excited to come here and still laughing at our 'experience'. Avoid.

We had lunch here. Portions were big, options were basically some bread or pasta with salad. Also gluten-free bread available. Cakes looked delicious but didn't have any room left for dessert.

Café Josephine is just like little Paris on Vene Street, at the gates of the Dominican Monastery. We have real coffee beverages, cakes and truffles. The café also offers small savoury snacks.
