We go there often for salads. Good service and excellent salads. New premises has more seating capacity which is good. Texmex salad is excellent.

Came here with a friend, after they recommended the oven-baked potatoes. Must say I was not disappointed! I ate one with a crab filling, and it was the most delicious thing ever! Have actually been dreaming of one ever since I ate the first one....The potato was so good, that I actually forgot to take a picture. The food and service staff is great, but service itself is quite slow. So if you are in a rush, this is not the place for you. Instead, if you have time, it is the most nicest cafes in town!More

We went for lunch with a friend who had been here before and said that salads and jacket potatoes are good. She was right, tasty they were. The price was not bad, either. The space is cozy. It was a bit cold to sit at...the inner court, and there was some renovation going on so it was not so tempting. For dessert we tasted the profiterolles, small sweet just enough! Special points for the service. The staff was really helpful and friendly.More

Arrived early for lunch and Had excellent salad, plenty of options to choose from. Ordered also coffee & dessert at the same time and unfortunately the "rush hour" started. This meant that I Had to wait for coffee&dessert for 20min. Service is friendly.

Came here for a snack, this place serves mainly tortillas, salads and cakes. The tortillas are really good quality and come with a side of fresh garden salad and bread. The orange juice is also fresh. They have a wide selection of wines here, they...serve sangria and also special kinds of hot chocolate and coffee specialties. I also ordered cake if the season which was lignonberry-white chocolate with caramel sauce. It was absolutely amazing and probably one of the best cakes I've had, albeit quite sweet. The place is cute, bakery-style. Service was very friendly and very fast. Would absolutely recommend if you're looking for a snack, be it salty or sweet.More

I've been to this bistro 2 days in row for lunch and I have not been disappointed! The bistro is charming with an almost Parisian atmosphere. The menu has an extensive list of salads, all made fresh and tasty. I enjoyed the coffee as well....Good service and friendly staff!More
