nice crepes served with fresh fruit, the cappuccino is pretty good too. Service is hit and miss as they have a high turn over and it is usually teenagers waiting tables. Seating inside or outside. Is relaxing and they do not rush you. Great meeting...More

I enjoy the gelato, but the service can be very uneven: some of the staff are friendly and on the ball - others can be very cool and seem like they have never worked in food services before. My food rating is for the gelato.More
