There's something about Mozaik that reminds me of Christmas: the way the hookah pipes shine from the corner, the way the little star-shaped lamps hang down in front of them, and the mahogany, deep reds and creams that paint the cafe warm.

This is the tea-shop part, incidentally. Downstairs is a straight-forward, no-great-shakes coffee shop, so only stop there if you're in a rush. What's more, it feels like a coffee chain, the walls adorned with soulless coffee-babble.

Upstairs, however, you'll find some kind of sanctuary, plenty of choice in teas (menu here) and maybe a lunch-time snack, such as the vegetable lasagne which, in truth, is fairly standard fare. But with its art deco lamps, tile-mosaic tables and quaint little bar, they've got the atmosphere right. It is a teashop rather than a restaurant, after all.

The layout too is pretty quirky and a little bit short on space. The tea-bar is visible through the bottom half of a partially knocked-through wall, creating enough room for a few extra seats in the form of cushions. Not the kind of thing you find in Starbucks.

And finally, last-things-last and, actually, the waitress didn't offer last time, you can usually roll three dice before paying the bill. If they come up the same, your teas are on the house, so the professional Yahtzee player should go home happy. Probability: 0.46%. Good luck.
