I ordered an espresso with my le petit déjeuner and got a sort half-long-black thing. Pros: served at the perfect temperature, unlike all of Spain; cons: lacking a little in the flavour department.

I can’t guarantee you’ll have the same experience, but the entertainment is hard to beat. An on-foot police chase, complete with officers rushing the café, took place while I ate my breakfast.

    Amazing. This place is simply perfect. The name translates literally to a coffee ‘library’, and there’s a great selection of single origin beans to choose from. The lounge is very comfortable - some great couches and a few tables, nice relaxing music, a…

    After a few less than stellar espresso experiences in Paris, and with Decaf Sucks reviews a little thin on the ground in this part of the world, I decided to try some alternative sources for a decent café recommendation. Through the coffeegeek.com forum…
