This café is in the market place at the gates of the cathedral, so it has a nice view. I had what was probably the best hot chocolate I have ever drunk and I have drunk lots.

Popped in for lunch and very nice food but they didn't accept card payments and that was weird. Drinks were nice too. Bad service.
