    Still my favourite place in the city to relax, or think and write. A home away from home. Really authentic and somewhat old fashioned place in a city with an overload of 'cool' coffee bars.

    You can basically choose everything on the menu and it will be great! Only thing I didn't like was the very old coffee/chocolate recipe from long ago.. It can be very busy; go upstairs. Wi-Fi as well.

    Very cute and cozy place with extremely good coffee. Perfect for Sunday mornings. Though the construction that is right in front makes it hard to notice the place

    On the second folio you can find table in front of the window. You can spend there few hours with cup of hit tea, reading books around and watching city live

    In the spring and summer the home made lemonade is my favorite, but during winter? The wake up call with milk or white chocolate. Comfort, yummmmm and a shot of coffee in one cup.
