I cute little cafe with seating inside, outside, and up stairs. It's actually much larger than expected with all the hidden seating. The front counter has all the desserts on display. They do soup, salad, paninis, deserts, and daily specials. The bread is nice and light and not over pressed where it hurts to chew. I ordered a volcano with... More

Very nice little eatery discovered by accident. Don't be fooled by the cheap prices either as the food is excellent. Very clean and friendly.

I love this place. Since I visited this cute, little Italian café for the first time, I always wished to go back. 😊 The cakes tastes like homemade. If you want to enjoy a nice coffee then go,go,go 😊☕️🍰🍨

Had sandwitches, soup, dessert and coffee. The sandwitches were very fresh and delicious, brocolli soup was amazing. Enjoyed all the dessert we tried, canollo, tiramisu and coconut nutella tart. Great coffee! Bravisima!

Stumbled upon this quaint cafe while searching for a late afternoon cappuccino and pastry! The cafe is small so you may have to wait but will say it's defiantely worth it! The cappuccinos, pistachio cannoli, tiramisu and coffee cake were all amazing!

Lovely place but it does fell just a bit claustrophobic in the back. That aside its worth putting up with it for the Almond croissants, The coffee is really good and the staff are lovely. Then go upstairs and have a look at the jewelry.

Go in the morning and have their special of a hot drink (like coffee) plus one of their munchies on top of the counter - all for a small price of less than four euros.

This cosy cafe is easily missed, but if you spot the stairs leading down to the basement then you're in for a treat. The staff here were all so lovely, the place was obviously popular but we didn't feel overcrowded. And the food arrived swiftly despite the busyness, impressive since its all freshly prepared. Very cheap for such a central... More
