Endless waiting, waitresses dragging their feet, not washing their hands, talking to each other, patting on their cell phone before serving you without a hello. Unprotected shades => hair in my cottage cheese. Yuck!

Stylish place with all the essentials for getting work done. Not too loud and nice chill music in the background. Good wifi. Not too full. Plus stylish dishes. A bit expensive, but still not as bas some others (like Pain Quotidien etc.).

It's a very nice and cozy place, although it's almost always full so it can be hard to get a sitting place there. They have amazing cupcakes that will make your dentist very angry.
