Not the best experience. Nice location for resting from hectic district but the cake wasn’t too special. Also I would tell the “digital nomads” to look for a co working space as this is a cafe. They are very loud and destroy the atmosphere.

Close to our hotel this small cafe was a fantastic find. The coffee was excellent and the cakes and chocolates superb. What more do I need to say?

Fantastic truffles. The short and dark hot chocolate was rich. The chocolate is mostly dark. Very delicious.

I initially came here with a group after a tour and we had a nice selection of delicious chocolate desserts to share while at the gin bar behind the cafe. I came back on my own and had the chocolate cheesecake (and didn’t have to...More
