Come to this all-day cafe in the morning for a croissant BEC, or later on for pizzas topped with things like homemade meatballs and pickled chilis. The front room, which looks like a nondescript coffee shop, is a good place to have coffee and read a book on a couch or lounge chair, and the dining room and backyard are both good spots for a casual afternoon snack with a beer or glass of wine (but there are better places nearby for a full sit-down meal).
