Had breakfast with the comfort of home, a welcome atmosphere after days of eating at restaurants. Yogurt with fruit and yogurt, delicious baked goods, reasonable prices.

Stop for lunch with a colleague. My coffee and tuna sandwich was great but my colleague's salmon sandwich was a tad tasteless. Overall though friendly and warm service - will be back.
