This one is easy to review. Average food Average quality Average staff Average service Over priced You are a fairly captive audience so this is reflected in the standards. Nothing was offensive and the staff were available but they didn't seem to want to be at work and this showed in the level of attentiveness.

We wanted a snack around 4pm and noticed the snack sign outside, so we parked up and went in, to be told very rudely that the kitchen was not open......it showed that they were very happy we were leaving the premises.......NEVER again

Basic food, but good. Service was fine. The outdoor dining was awesome on our bright and sunny day! Not great, but good. Would do it again.

It was very quiet at the Café and the staff were very pleasant. The food was overpriced and very basic. We left felling a bit ripped off, but we should have realised that would be the case at a tourist trap such as this.

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.
