The small, cozy coffee house in the dark alley has been the place where people from all backgrounds visit every day for a cup of comfort and freshly roasted beans for decades. It is a cozy, pleasant place that has remained very authentic since 1937. What is unique about the coffee house is that there are absolutely no social boundaries. That friendly, relaxed atmosphere is a legacy from the past and is enhanced by the fact that there are barely ten tables. It can be pleasantly busy there. :)
