Average pastry

I suppose if one had lunch you would be made to feel more welcomed, but coffee drinkers who want a pastry are sort of space takers it seems-relegated to the lousy seats.Service a bit slow, pastries not as good as in Paris ,. But nice view over the Stanislas place

The restaurant is well located on the Stanislas place (please try to book a table near the windows on the first floor our outside in summer), the view is perfect on that beautiful place. The menu is not very expensive and the dishes are good. A special selection of local wines is proposed with in every step of your lunch... More

Seems to be a grand establishment just on impressive Place Stanislas. We were after coffee which is served only outdoors at noon time. Still we were able to be offered a table inside. Coffee is nice but the pastry such as Mille Feuille doesn't match up its viennese counterpart, the Kremschnitt. The same is true for Linzer. We found the... More

This bistro is located on the beautiful Stanislas place. We had a nice lunch on their terrace in the sun, which probably influences my review. Expect a bistro menu card with upper end prices. Very touristic but food was good. Good for lunch.

We just stopped by for coffee on the terrace and to admire the view. The coffee was rather expensive (nearly 8 euros for two) but the view is exceptional. The service was fast and efficient. We will be back.

The Café is situated on the stunning Place Stanislas. We were attacted by the "Plat du jour" (lunchtime special) but there was none left at 13.30. I chose instead a prawn and vegetable salad and my husband a chicken fillet with chorizo. My salad was served in a wooden steamer basket which made it difficult to cut the contents. The... More

The Cafe is located at the south-western corner of the PLACE STANISLAS, the famous UNESCO world heritage. Clouded it was, we had to wait waiter or waitress to come and take order. For late lunch we ordered Quiche Lorraine, which was delicious and fit for Beer ABBAYE. Much fun to look visitors were caught by rain and rush into the Cafe.
