The coffee house in English style serves meals, snacks and drinks among laid-back atmosphere by the serene Kok River. I had a delicious mushrooms soup. The coffee was served on a special plate and the atmosphere was so inspiring! Enjoy!

The atmosphere is outstanding and cozy. We stopped in for afternoon drinks (teas and coffee). Ended up having a nice snack also. Excellent selection of beverages. Has a full dinner menu with British influence. Nice stop if an expats home sick.
