Avoid highway restaurants. Go there instead

I convinced my family to exit the highway and go to this restaurant. Best decision of the day. Very nice restaurant, typical French decor, on a budget. My French great father said that the food was as good as what her mum made him. If think that says it all.

This was our second visit to Avallon and the second visit to Dame Jeanne. The first time we took afternoon tea, but this time we had lunch. Tables are set out in two period rooms with a peaceful atmosphere. The garden was closed as it was a cold October day. We wanted a lunch that was not too filling and... More

We stopped by for a light lunch and enjoyed delicious homemade smoked salmon quiche with salad. Service was with a smile and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food.

By far the cosiest and nicest place to enjoy any kind of hot drink, snack - salted or sweet, light lunch or afternoon tea in Avallon. In winter time you'll appreciate the warm wooden decor of a bourgeois town-house, and in the summer the peaceful little courtyard. For a salted meal try the heavenly Gougères filled with Epoisses, in my... More

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!
