Delivers everything that a breakfast spot/cafe should. Their avocado toast with poached egg is perfection. Coffee is amazing. And on top of that the staff are attentive, chatty and super friendly. Faultless from start to finish.

Stayed in apartment round the corner to this trendy and friendly place. Service welcoming and top notch. Advocado and poached eggs with sourdough toast, courgette fritters to share and lovely tea. It’s a must go place just two minutes walk from the cathedral.

We were blessed with stunning weather. Thirty degrees in September. Federal is in the beautiful old town. It is half way up a cobble slope. Bare this in mind if you have mobility issues. The restaurant has an al fresco section of about eight tables...More
