Inside, it feels as though we’re in a speakeasy dating from the prohibition period in the U.S. back in the late 20’s.

Mok

specialty coffee bar

saturday and sunday, from 10am to 6pm
du lundi au vendredi, de 8h à 18h

For over two years now, customers have been going to Mok to drink delicious specialty coffee on the spot, or take it away to their office nearby.
