    Coffee was delicious, this is true, but I think this is overhyped place. I do not like to wait in a long queue outside to get a coffee and simple toast...

    The affogato is delicious, vanilla ice cream with espresso poured over it. Also try their Giant Steps black coffee - when they say it's "fudgy" they mean it!
  • Ashley R.
    Delicious brunch items, the Tunisian Baked Eggs where incredible. Well crafted coffee.
  • Sean M.

    So good for coffee and breakfast. The homemade granola with yoghurt was perfect, but I have to admit I was suffering serious food envy when I saw the avocado with milk bread toast

    Un paso adelante en la 3ra generación en cafeterías. Tal vez , como es propio de esta flamante tendencia, descuida el bienestar del cliente .

    Потрясающее место для жертв рекламы. Рассматривается как очень хипстерская кофейня. Рекомендую заказывать только стандартные кофейные напитки

    Милая маленькая кофейня, с уютным интерьером, неплохим кофе и сладостями. Отличное место, чтобы посидеть с ноутом и поштырить в инете.
