Coffee was still great but 6 months ago you could read a new magazine while drinking your coffee, this time they were all a bit dated and well thumbed through, and couldn't find anything to read that I hadn't read before.

A great place to stop for coffee after a visit to the amazing Suter Gallery. Even better when owner Katarina teams up with her 'band of men' fir a night of music. Old standards, 7 accomplished musicians and a great evening. Wine and antipasto platter...More
