Nice place for brunch with great coffee. An oasis to escape KK's traffic and heat. No pressure to move on. Many working on laptops using the free wi-fi. Nice atmosphere. Reasonable menu with diy breakfast sets if you're vegan/vege/lchf etc. Recommended!

The pesto pasta is very bitter. Apple juice doesn't taste good. Should improve the taste of pesto paste.
