When ever we go to Canterbury (and that is a lot) we always make for this Cafe'. The baguettes are brilliant, as is the coffee. The specials board always has something different most days. This Cafe' also has outdoor seating and is a little sun trap now they have cut down some trees at the back, smashing in the summer... More

This is a real find in Canterbury. Really good food, usually authentic French. Nice service, the French owner can be a bit dour at busy times. The home made soup and the rabbit baguette I especially recommend.Good coffee too.

I have a baguette from the specials menu once a month & they are really first class. There is normally a choice of five, some hot. The food is always fresh and tasty & you will find fillings that you will never find elsewhere! There is also a selection of fantastic French pastries! Wonderful!

Forget the chain down the road - this is a little haven. Privately owned by a very caring and friendly owner who takes a personal interest in his customers. Classic French baguettes and pastries etc. A delightful little courtyard at the back - a great place to meet your friends for lunch.

The best place this side of the Channel to enjoy REAL French patisserie! Lovely staff, all very friendly, and excellent coffee too. The lunchtime baguettes are a joy. Love this place.

This is not your usual cafe but one with unusual dishes with a Gallic flavour. Well worth visiting for a snack lunch.

This became my true saviour when i recently experienced Canterbury, a small but excellant flavoursome menu for a lunch stop with a great specials board also worth checking out. It does not stop there as the entrance through the pattisserie will have you staying for that course of fine pastries on offer. Pleasant and helpful service from the staff make... More
