A labyrinth of rooms with interesting decor,board games can be played outside of busy times. We visited late Saturday afternoon. I had the Apple St Moritz and a pot of tea while my partner had Black Forest Cake and a latte. A real treat!!

This cafe is an icon in West End. Meals are ordered and paid for at the counter and then brought to your table. The cakes and deserts at the counter looked divine. Once inside, the cafe is bigger than it looks, with twists and turns...More
