Depends which day!

Reviews for here are all over the place so guess it depends which day you go. We stopped for lunch, it wasn’t busy, service with a smile, food OK and surprisingly not expensive for a tourist trap. Hope you catch it on a good day to.

The best thing about this place was the opening of the Pegasus bridge for a ship to pass through, it gave a good diversion from the poor food. Avoid anything with fries, they are soggy, avoid the vegetarian baguette with tomato and mozarella, it was burnt on top and soggy on the bottom, avoid the chicken salad, it was tasteless.... More

A welcoming smile from the busy young servers as they seated us outside in a shady spot adjacent to the Caen canal. The limited menu and specials board contain enough choices for a lunch time bite. Excellent coffee and sweets and ice cream. Reasonably priced. ps it's better than the famous venue opposite :)

Having arrived at the museum on our motorcycles on a very warm day we wanted to have a bite of lunch before entering the museum. We had hoped to go to the historic old original cafe across the road but all the outside tables were taken and even if they weren't it was very close to a very busy road... More

A short stop over to see Pegasus bridge & the museum. We decided to try this cafe & as with all french eateries, we found the staff very welcoming and the food very good and not overly expensive.

The cafe is one of two opposite Pegasus Bridge. The menu is simple consisting of a number of items with chips or lettuce such as Quiche Lorraine, chicken, fish, omelette and burgers. There's a range of desserts on offer but no ice cream which would've been nice in the sun! There's an indoor eating area but we opted for outside... More

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
