Good place to have a drink during happy hours (around 5€) and enjoy the passing of the crowd and the sun. Although I wouldn't recommend it to eat as it wasn't that great (lunch or breakfast).

A must see. This is a beautiful old building lovingly kept with a great coffee/drinks bar in the middle. They serve food too and although we didn't have any, it looked very tempting. There is outside seating too.
