Be warned …
You won’t find here many hangout spots for adults but it doesn’t mean there aren’t any. There’s a couple of really nice cafes and bars, but more as an exception to the family-friendly restaurants and bistros which can be found around every corner. Oh, and if you’re not a big fan of children, you may like to re-consider living in this neighborhood.
