This thriving café is loved by locals and ex-pats alike and it’s not hard to see why. Besides dropping in for a coffee or a bite to eat, regulars come here to catch up with friends, conduct business or simply to make use of the free WiFi. The straightforward menu of sandwiches, salads and desserts is reliably yummy and the doorstep-sized roast beef sandwiches have developed something of a cult following. Choose to sit at a counter, booth, outside table or squashy sofa; place your order with the English-speaking staff at the till, wait for your name to be called over the loudspeaker, collect your order and enjoy – simple. A second branch has opened on the slopes at Shymbulak, which may just be the perfect context in which to enjoy an ambrosial Marrone Rosso hot chocolate.
