Lunch breaks

There is a supermarket right across the street from our studio.
This will be your best option for buying snacks to get through the classes!

This is not open on Sunday!

During the Saturday break there will be some snacks available at our studio.

These are courtesy of one of our students’ bakery!

The bar on the ground floor of our studio serves good food!
But it will be impossible for them to serve everyone during the lunch break.

Better save this option for after classes, when you’re not in a rush.
