Love this place, excellent coffee, such a sweet place to chill out in. The cakes are rather special too.
I'm not sure why this is so high in Trip Advisor. I imagine a bit of crowdsourcing of reviews from friends. The coffee and cakes are very nice - granted. The lady who runs it is very friendly too! I imagine it's great if you are on your own and fancy a chat with someone, but it's certainly not suitable for couples or families. It's a particular kind of place.
I visited The Window on the strength of the reviews on this site and I have to confess I'm confused. Maybe I chose a bad day... it's cramped and very hot inside so I opted for a take out. Service was slow and there was no apology for the delay. The coffee itself was fine - but, again, nothing special. There are many better cafes down Magdelen Street... next time I'll carry on walking....
