Top tip: Sit upstairs...it's great for people watching as it's in a nice area. Nice spot go grab a drink but food was pretty basic.

Service is good as is the coffee. Plenty of people watching and some very good street musicians. If you come for an evening meal take a table on the balcony upstairs. The menu offers a good range and the food is well prepared and presented.

Went several times in 2010 and really enjoyed the coffee, snacks and ambience. Service staff poor this time, coffee very mediocre, we transfered our allegiance to the Ritz further down the road.

Nice place for a stop and a coffee/orange juice/beer. We often sit here and people watch. Not too expensive but now seem to have stiff competition with The Ritz down the road a bit.
