Very easy to find and convenient parking to the rear. The inside itself is very simple and not over crowded as many places are now. Our coffees and cakes were worth every penny we paid :)

A truly fantastical place for any chocaholic or sweet tooth person, cakes could come straight out of any of Paris' finest pattiseries, coffee and hot chocolate possibly the finest in town
