We enjoyed a leisurely morning with great coffee, excellent food, and fun 1970s-era music. Perfect for a rainy morning. :-)

Hygge: cozy, relaxed, beautiful, enjoying it with friends. Absolutely love this coffee shop. The lemon cake was delicious, as well as the banana bread. Highly recommend it!

My wife and I spent quite a few nights after long days sitting in this place drinking some beer and playing cards. Cosy feel with lots of different seating to choose from.
