Nice place with tables and coaches to have a relaxed time with some good coffee, tea and a little bite. Good location in Mareel.

Went for coffee with a friend. It must be the most inefficient service in town, although the coffee is good when it arrives.

Nice place for coffee and a chat, nice friendly staff make it even better. Not much variety in the food department but we were only there for a coffee.
