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.

very nice cafe serving wonderful food at reasonable prices. the staff were very nice and spoke english and were most helpful unlike the old bag at the gondree cafe oppersite who was an awful excuse for a human being. eat here its a pleasant experience and a nice memoir to take away with you.

This was ideally situated next to Pegasus Bridge and ideal for a quick lunch. Don't expect anything too fancy but the value was good and service reasonably quick, despite the one girl serving all tables inside and outside being rushed off her feet!

I passed this en route to Caen for yet another stay at the University as part of my continuing exploration of the French language. The restaurant is directly opposite the Pegasus Bridge café, the first place liberated in France, which involved British airborne forces eventually relieved by British commandos advancing from the coast. It was a truly heroic feat of... More

Friendly lady who put herself out to make the children feel at ease. The food we had was lovely and was priced reasonably, I had Moules mariniere, they were to die for, sweet fresh and succulant. Will eat here again, as per previous reviews, Cafe Gondree is so rude and unwelcoming.
