Reviewed 14 December 2015

Located just a short walk from Europa shopping centre, I tried it based on good reviews. Although we arrived around 12:30 the place was empty but we didn't mind. Very cosy place, vintage decor, nice music.
Photos here on trip ad. show shelves full of fresh bread which created false expectations. We found them to be empty. We asked what we could have for lunch and were kindly offered 3 alternatives a croissant or a choice of two paninis with different fillings, not freshly made but bought in. We were slightly disappointed with the small choice but since we were there we settled for the two paninis grilled. They were good and served with a little bowl of mustard and honey based sauce I guess. Cappuccinos were nice if you like them more milky and not so strong like my other half, and served in big mugs.
We were the only customers there for the whole 45mins, and I couldn't help not noticing tables (at least 3 from a total of 10 maybe) which all they needed were a quick wipe with a wet cloth to take away evidence of previous customers. Gents toilets clean overall but again since the staff was not (1) rushed of her feet she could check if the paper dispenser is full and the hand wash basin could do with a quick wipe around.
These are things you d excuse in a place that's buzzing and staff might be under pressure.
Since it's a place with little passing trade I feel they should be doing that little bit extra to win and keep their customers.
