Definitely a must visit place for a lunch. Can get it to-go, or find a seat in the quirky dining area. Very popular with the locals, often line-ups. Very good food at reasonable prices. Had live music at lunch on a weekday. Awesome!

Awesome place. The layout was somewhat confusing and it was extremely busy(noon). The atmosphere was like a coffee shop but more interesting. The sweets were wonderful and the choices outstanding. Some people had chosen to have full meals which looked really tasty.
