We had enjoyed tea and excellent cakes before, but this time came for lunch. The Cafe Josephine is colorfully decorated and comfortably furnished. Our group's lunch included pastas, salads and grilled cheese sandwiches. In every case ingredients were fresh and delicious; portions were generous.

Café Josephine is just like little Paris on Vene Street, at the gates of the Dominican Monastery. We have real coffee beverages, cakes and truffles. The café also offers small savoury snacks.
