Enjoyed a great coffee and a cinnamon roll in a great atmosphere. Met some cool people and took pictures of a monkey who let himself in to beg for bananas from the owner!! Watch out for the impressive art in your espresso!

The barista was incredible. He turned our cappuccinos into art. They also had the best coffee ever. The only drawback was that the owner from Atlanta tried to talk to us too much while we were enjoying our coffee.
