This is a small cafe/ diner. The staff is not attentive and will not come to your table. You are expected to find the menu self and order at the bar. Not easy to know. We ordered coffee, some cookies and pancakes. The coffee was served, after a while the cookies and then at last some pancakes. One burned and... More

I love the cinnamon bunns here, and nothing beats sitting in the sheltered, back yard on a sunny summer day digging in to their chips. I love the no frills attitude, and the mix of people and eating concepts they have. A cinnamon bunn, a 3 course full dinner, og a burger on the fly.

Good food, smiling and friendly stuff. Prices are good for whaty you get - because you get quite a big portions. Steak sandwich is yummy! I recommend to book the table before coming, because place tends to be crowded during the lunch time.

That was back in 2011 and over the years we have visited this place several times. It is still part café , part coffee shop, part catering and part shop for various stuff such as... More

Quiet spot to meet with friends for an afternoon out. Great lattes and really yummy lunch specials. A cozy spot a bit off the beaten path and well worth taking the time to check it out.

After some lunch when staying at the Royal hotel and this place was just across the road and looked nice. The menu offers a mix of various items as well as a few specials. Add to that a selection of mostly organic drinks and smoothies on the bar and you get the impression of a trendy, organic place (even the... More
