“One of the icon restaurant of the neighborhoods. This place is open 24/7. So most of the people go there after going out all night... If you need to choose something, go for the pasta (carbonara or bolognese) they are the best! ”

Food & Drink Shop
“Unami is an hidden gem! Not so known by its civilians, Unami is a great place to shop tea (but definitely not the one I would suggest you, it'll come after) but it's definitely my favorite to have a typical japanese all steamed lunch! Be careful because the lunch time is short in this little shop but it's really worth it!”

“Le nouveau "café presse" du quartier. Ambiance parfaite pour brunchs branchés: toutes sortes de cafés, lattés, boissons "healthy", salades, super sandwichs (mon favori: poulet-cheddar!) etc. Vous pouvez y aller sans ou avec enfants (ils ont un kids corner). Laptops bienvenus pour travailler en mangeant un cup cake.”
