    The Spanish tortilla, charcuterie plate and chocolate red wine cake are all very good. I will definitely be back to try more on the menu!

    They now have a (tiny at the moment) graphic design section. Love this place.

    One of their four wi-fi networks doesn't work, but if you ask they'll give you the pass code to a different one..

    Excellent book selection. Most books are well below cover price. Good beer list and not bad espresso, too
