The guy managing the cafe is extremely slow and unfriendly; where the rest of the staff seem they can’t be bothered by cleaning the tables, which accumulate dishes from a variety of visitors. Very dissatisfying

I'm a regular customer to this family owned café and really like it for their breakfast and nice atmosphere. It's good to take a simple lunch or have fika or coffee. I highly recommend it.

We got the breakfast tower plus scrambled eggs, bacon, and yogurt. Oh and juice and coffee. Okay okay, I couldn't make up my mind, but it all got eaten and I was very happy. And there was a free Belgian waffle bar!
