Editor's Review

This café is on our radar, which means that it hasn’t been independently reviewed. It’s been recommended to us by a user or café and we have researched it but we haven’t visited.


Clean, light cafe with mix of hipsters and folks on laptops. Coffee was Man vs Machine from Munich when I was there. Various healthy choices on the menu and several types of in-house made pie.

Coffee nirvana! I can't rate the quality of the cortado highly enough. Idle Hands are very focused on quality coffee. They have a cool double Mahlkönig EK-43 too and very nice looking cakes. The place is very clean and the atmosphere is serene

A range of coffee roasts is available here. This is a place where coffee is king and the food is excellent. Salads, sandwiches, soup, cooked brunch are served with vegan options. I haven’t tried the cakes but they are home made with vegan options.

Very nice coffee, amazing pies!

Really great atmosphere, lovely coffee, amazing cakes (vegan options too), and overall super chill vibes. Lots of plants and very airy and spacious too!

The first coffee shop I’ve been in for a while that has made me smile. Good vibe, fine soundtrack, great art, excellent coffee. They’ve put this place together with thought and style.
