  • This cafe looks an amazing, friendly, creative place to sit and hang out. I'll definitely be back again to spend a good amount of time to investigate what this great place is really about on a deeper level.
  • Awesome spot to go to do work/chill/catch up with friends. Always has events going on and incredible art on display. Would recommend to anyone.
  • A cool space to hang out for an hour or a few. An oasis of calm in the midst of a busy industrial area. Enjoy a coffee and vegan treat, or not, as there is no obligation to buy anything from the cafe, while reading a book from their library or looking at an exhibition or catching up on work. It's also a meeting place where creative minds rent a space to work and where events are held. Would recommend.
  • A multi-faceted creative collaboration space that hosts both interesting events and gigs and has an excellent cafe - Pedro's Cafe!
  • Great place. Great vision. Great staff. And going there you are also supporting creative spaces housed in the same building. Too good
