We came here for a hot chocolate and we're not disappointed! marshmallows and cream pilled high. Find your way or to the garden if you can. It's lovely out the back.

Very cozy tea room with a great selection of specialty tea and coffee and delicious lunch options like quiches (also vegetarian). By far the nicest place we saw in Avallon!

The rooms are understated, the menu simple plus lots of teas and coffees. As a vegetarian i was impressed at the 3 choices for the main, a rarity in France. I chose the potato gratin with salad...

very nicely decorated with a very friendly staff, we were very happy to discover the this tea place serves also delicious food - rather salty tarts or various meals. There is an enormous selection of teas or hot chocolates and the desert - fondant aux maroons- was just fantastic! Highly recommended!

This place is more of a café and tea house but also offers lunches. The lunches are delicious, home made and very good value. Whenever I am in Avallon during lunch time, I eat here. The service is very friendly and efficient! They have different daily specials (along with some of the standard menu items like quiche and salad, etc.).... More
