Myself, my partner and 2 year old child had an early dinner here. Staff was really nice and described the menu when we had questions. Our food tasted very good and price was ok! Our son loved the pesto dish :)

We had only 45 minutes between trains and chose Bookaffe for its sign indicating fresh food, 0 km. Definitely a great spot for lunch and only steps from the train station.
