Genre of food: Cafe-style.
What we ate: Breakfast – eggs of your choice, salads, home-baked bread, hot drink. They also let you take whatever you fancy from around the cafe and add it to your bill at the end, including bourekas, cookies, breads, etc. It's a nice, friendly touch, but requires plenty of self-restraint!
How it tasted: Fresh, homemade, delicious.
Service: Not the fastest, as it is an independently run cafe and everything was made on the spot – but worth the wait.
Ambiance: Homely, intimate.
Decor: Small cafe style, lots of gingham, pink, checkered fabrics, hand written noticeboards, and a focus on cupcakes (which are delicious).
Cleanliness: Very clean, including washrooms.
Price ($ / $$ / $$$): Fairly good – $$
Best / recommended dish: You have got to try their hot chocolate. Seriously.
Would you return: Yes
