Very average

We called in for a quick coffee and lunch after a museum visit. Food was cold and very average but was not too expensive. I was a little sad to see lots of children offered a toy from a box but my little boy was not offered one. (Only French children were offered) Lovely spot for a cafe.

We walked here from Ouistreham on a November Saturday. Warmly greeted on entry. Only had limited food choice but was just the light lunch we needed. Croque Monsieurs and salads. We're all given free postcard as we left. Thanks for the friendly reception

My wife and I walked along the canal path to Pegasus and wanted something to eat and after a bad experience across the road we eat here. I did not mind that the choice was between Croque Monseiur or Chicken and chips but it was a let down. The food was served arrived in about 4 minutes on paper plates... More

Our visit to Pegasus Bridge coincided with lunch - standard run of the mill value fare with something for everyone. Overheard some of the locals complain about some closed mussels but the place seemed OK. Tried my first Croque Monsieur & Frites of the trip, so that perhaps sets the scene. Decent service, even with a smile. 25eu meal for... More

Having eaten here in the past we decided to stop off again for lunch. We weren't disappointed. Don't expect Michelin * but the food is well prepared (you can't really spoil omelette and frites) and the service is excellent with all the staff very friendly. The coffee is one of the nicest I have drunk in France too. If you... More

We arrived at Pegasus Bridge at around 2:15pm on a Friday. We were hungry for lunch, so sat down at one of the outside tables. A waitress came by about 10 minutes later (??!) and asked if we wanted to eat, or drink. We said "Eat", and she gave us menus. We ordered drinks, and then she came out and... More

This is a very pleasant, friendly place (opposite the famous Cafe Gondree), beside the equally famous Pegasus Bridge, one of the must-see destinations in Normandy. We had a simple lunch here - I recommend the Saucisse Normande and a pression. Good coffee too, and a lot cheaper than its neighbour across the road, though Madame Gondree is a real looker... More

Great welcome, good coffee, good prices. The exact opposite of the Pegasus Café across the road which has the most dreadful owner you could imagine. She is horrible.
