Gz Cafe is a legendary low-key destination hidden among a cluster of old lane houses. Located in the front room of one of these houses, the cafe is decorated with wooden tables and chairs, soft cushions and an old-style ceiling fan, while laidback sounds of bossa nova play in the background.
Home-roasted coffee and hand-made biscuits are the two most popular choices on offer, while simple sandwiches and tasty pasta dishes offer convenient fare for relaxed after-work dining.
While many cafes simply use coffee as a lead then focus on developing a particular atmosphere, Gz is dedicated to providing the finest coffee, as their very expensive semi-automatic coffee machine proves. The couple who own Gz Cafe insist they want to create a place with authentic coffee and a backyard feel for busy people to escape the pressure.
Gz Cafe regularly hosts cookie-making courses and there is also a projector in the cafe for movie screenings. Colored pens are available for guests to scrawl graffiti on the table and it can be quite fun to read previous customers' messages.
