Service is non-existent, one waitress for the vast inside lounge and outside terrace. Management is asleep - or takes guests satisfaction for granted.

the place is very pleasant but the service is slow as hell and the prices are not reflecting the size of the portions, the overall quality and the slow service/

I spent an entire day hosting meetings from this 'coffee shop' and the staff catered to our every whim. The speciality coffees were amazing as were each meal and ordered. Try the carrot cake!
