This modern-looking white-washed cafe is cozily nestled on a corner a stone’s throw away from the parliament. If you’re there for breakfast, try one of their homemade fancy fruit juices and follow it with a simple coffee while sitting on the hanging seat out front to watch the world go by. Lunch is where this joint shines (brunch is a bit too pricey and breakfast is a bit heavy on the granola and avocado items. Ramen, a salmon poke-style combo, a pho-type soup, and more are available for under 10€, so make your choice and tack on an extra 3€ for a delicious sangria to go with it. If beer is more your thing, check out their fridge: there’s a selection of local craft brews that might just bowl you over.
