The ice cream (gelato) was good. The prices were a little high and the staff wasn't unfriendly, but didn't go out of their way.

This little coffee house has great breakfasts! We enjoyed filled crepes and a croissant sandwich. Their croissants are homemade (and it shows!) and both the filled crepe and croissant were filling and delicious.
