Went here for lunch yesterday. We had salad nicoise and a cheese and ham omelette. They were delicious. Watch out for the drinks prices, as even the soft drinks were very expensive!

We ate here most mornings. Selection offered for breakfast was good. Great coffee and one of the best places to people watch. There is a taxi, metro and bus stop on a busy corner.

The above subject says it all really. Food also very average if not poor for the money! €4.60 for a beer if you go to the bar or €11 if the waiter

As the bustling center of entertainment for the
