My local café for a delicious brew before heading into work! This tiny café in a cute cobble-stone alley is lovely: wood everywhere and great staff. I have been quite disappointed in the food they serve (went once for brunch and they had run out of everything at 1:30pm) so I would recommend only for coffee. Have a try at their Ice Latte, probably one of the best I ever tried!


Such a great deli-style café and a great option for weekend brunch! The atmosphere is warm and the place smells of freshly brewed coffee and sourdough bread as soon as you walk in. You'll be tempted to choose something from the counter as everything looks delicious - cakes, croissants, wraps, sandwiches, toasties. But if you have some time grab a table and enjoy their delicious brunch options! They serve the most incredible sourdough bread and they get it fresh every day from nearby bakery The Snapery (bonus info: they sell loafs of it too!). Top it up with all the delicious options on offer (smashed avocado, smoked salmon, poached eggs, halloumi, creamy garlicky mushrooms) and you'll be very happy! Don't forget to order a cup of their amazing brews - and enjoy! 

The best place in the area!!! Highly recommend! It has the best coffee and pastries, and also the friendliest staff!!!

This café is for a sunny day...have coffee and breakfast looking out at the churchyard.

Highly recommend this coffee shop for great coffee and cake but also great atmosphere!

Great coffee, great sandwiches, great cakes and pastries, and lovely to sit out in the park.

Excellent coffee shop and staff, specially Cyntia and Sarita. My favorite place in my days off!

Always greeted with a smile nothing is ever to much trouble. Dog friendly and beautiful setting.

They got the most authentic coffee in the area. It is like having a brew with grandma, at home!

Small and cosy, this is the best place to stop while walking around the area.

The food is top quality and the staff will always welcome you with the biggest smile!
