Rattan chairs and about five small tables are placed close and cozy outside for an alfresco-style experience, and inside the warm red walls and wooden chairs further enhance the charm of this place. The service is personal and very friendly. The owner Alex is often on hand to make recommendations or just to interact with customers. What's especially enticing about this cafe is their great cakes and sweets. They have danishes, pastries, flour-less chocolate cakes and possibly the best baked cheesecakes ever. They also serve bacon and egg breakfasts, milkshakes, sandwiches and excellent coffee, all reasonably priced. Definitely worth traveling the distance for.
