    As of June 2020 there is no cafe anymore. Building is empty and available for rent/on sale.

    1. Many thanks, Arz! I was re-watching Age of Youth a little bit these days and was wondering is this place was still the same … so now we all know thanks to you. What a pity >.<

  2. While you were sleeping
