Spent 3 days in town and ate there every day. On every visit, the place was very busy. There were a few take sways, but nearly everyone dined inside. Customer ratio is about 75% female.

Place came recommended and is usually full at lunchtime. Pasta, salads and salty waffels with garnishes and fillings to choose from. Coffee and selfmade flavours of icecream. Very flexible and friendly staff, I got to take a plate to nextdoor workplace and return it later!...More

Really excellent food. Our party of 4 had different savoury waffles and gelato for dessert. All of us enjoyed the meals. Service was great and the setting is lovely. The lemon Turkish pepper gelato was particularly excellent!
