Very good concept, this place is not only good for food but atmosphere and artistic feel. Each separate section is unique. The food is great, the desserts are to die for and the drinks are wow. 10/10!

The place is artistically decorated with wall painting, vintage theme decors and books. We stopped by during our heritage walk for a break. We had to queue a bit. Then we were seated in a sharing long table with other people. There are papers cover the table and crayons to doodle while waiting to be served. Once we placed the order. We waited quite some time and asked a waiter about it. They mistakenly didn't place our order to the bar in the first time they took it. We told them it was ok, we would wait a bit more since we enjoyed going around the cafe explore all the artworks. A minute later the waiter came back with the most yummie salted caramel ice-cream as an apology from the cafe. Unexpected from a crowded place like this. The drinks served quickly soon after. They were all good. Totally recommend for everyone in the area.
