We enjoyed a yummy lunch of chicken and veggie soup with delicious bread. Very reasonably priced. We sat outside this corner cafe and enjoyed watching the passers by. Busy cafe and very friendly, helpful service!

If you want to taste another kind of bread this is your place. A lot of different and unique bread types and very delicious! You can also have a coffee or tea with a pastrie. But a bit expensive.
