Despite its moniker (or should we say Monica), this is nothing like the coffee house where Racheal, Chandler, Ross and co traded quips. Set in a converted villa, it’s like going round to someone’s house for morning drinks or a light lunch. If you can get into the back room, it’s a cosy little place to hangout, gossip or read the magazines left out for you, and there’s a small room for shisha smoking.
There’s original art on the walls (much of which is for sale), a wood-beam ceiling and petite artful tables. They do soups, pasta, burgers and baked potatoes, and it’s all adequate without being outstanding, but prices are reasonable and the service is polite. The food might be superior elsewhere, but you come here for the feeling of being in a home from home.
