visited 2 times on our 4 day stay. Surreal atmosphere brings you back to late 19th century France. Staff was ok but slightly cooler than the great warmth and color of the place. The cake is delicious, though I liked the mascarpone more than the...More

Very nice place with some really good coffee. They have a proper coffee machine not one of those that you press a button and makes a coffee. The atmosphere is also very nice. I recommend 👌

😂😂😂 how to sum up this place?!? Honestly save your money. REALLY disinterested staff, the mango ice cream had crystals in it and the house cake inedible. Was excited to come here and still laughing at our 'experience'. Avoid.

We had lunch here. Portions were big, options were basically some bread or pasta with salad. Also gluten-free bread available. Cakes looked delicious but didn't have any room left for dessert.

We popped in for lunch as the restaurant was opposite our hotel. It's nicely themed with a lovely set of staff but the panini was utterly yuk! The cheese which was described as cheddar on the menu was actually orange in colour and obviously processed...More

Josephine makes no pretense to being fine dining. It offers sandwiches (hot and cold), quiche, and a few other items. It makes these competently and serves them promptly. Prices modest, service efficient.

Café Josephine is just like little Paris on Vene Street, at the gates of the Dominican Monastery. We have real coffee beverages, cakes and truffles. The café also offers small savoury snacks.
