Friendly service and great coffee. It was a stop while visiting the street and had a good vibe, with people having a coffee and chat outside too. Interesting building, as they all are in this district.

So I didn't even know about this place until chatting to a local and told where to go. Huge space making it a bit loud and cold at times but over all, great. All types of furniture to sit, lie, lean on and funky stuff...More
