I come here for the coffee. If you're into bagels, they're pretty decent and cooked with fire. I'm picky about bagels, and I still get one here when I'm in the mood.

We were looking for a place for breakfast and walked past. The decor is really quirky and fun. The bagels are delicious- really tasty, chewy and great toppings. The coffee is strong with fabulous coffee art. Definitely a place to visit!

This is an unassuming cafe which has faithful clients who keep coming back. Really nice coffee with a wide choice of home made food. Great place to meet fellow travellers.

I was here a couple of years ago. The walnut yoghurt and the smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel are just as good as before. Definitely worth a visit. It's very easy to find in Georgetown and close to many tourist spots.
