The décor of this café is simply stunning. It has the simply rustic feel of a roof garden or green house with its mismatched wooden furniture and miscellaneous ornaments. One is encouraged to recline under the open sky and either bask in the sun during the day or marvel the stars each night. This is a café that appeals to a more hipster, alternative crowd but if you love a vintage ambiance then this is the place for you.
