We went to have Sunday brunch at TFF and had the buffet plus scrambled egg, sausage and bubbly.

While I understand some places emphasize the "cool" aspect, this can be done preserving friendliness and service efficiency. Here it wasn't. It took us quite some effort to have our orders taken and to get explanations about the menu (arguably a simple task).

The food quality was good - although the buffet quickly ran out of some options that were not replaced in the remaining half hour we were there. The bubbly only came at the end of the meal, when we wondered what might have happened to it.

The place has potential, but needs to improve its service consistency.

This place is great for brunch, they literally have the best eggs benedict in the city, served with edible flowers! Service was on the slow side but very friendly, also they had a lot of outdoor seating which was nice, and everything was very professional. One thing to miss was the salmon Tiradito, just not good. Prices were very normal for Palermo, though on the lower end probably. I do recommend, and definitely better than oui oui across the street!

After having a boring lunch we walked to this place for coffe and dessert and it was very good, excellent coffe and we had the apple crumble and it was delicious. Everything looked great too bad I had already eaten.
What I liked also is that they have a nice outdoor terrace in a sort of side open space.

Service was ok, food tasted good but they wanted to be American and didn't quite pull it off. Reasonally priced, very clean.
