We had a nice coffee and breakfast at bootleggers, the cortado and latte with soymilk are good. For breakfast we choose the granola and the chia pudding with strawberries and the both were full of flavour! We can recommend the place, also for vegans/vegaterians.

What an excellent service! We were 9 to find a table and it was crowded already. All of the staff was very helpful and we had a great breakfast. The poached eggs with avocado are great! And coffee is really good.
