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 Grand Cafe Foy is located on one corner of the magnificent Place Stanislas, and is a great place to sit with a beer or a pastis and people watch. We made the mistake of eating there! Service was sullen and unfriendly, and my Caesar Salad was not recommendable. The cheese was stale, and the chicken barely cooked, with red... More

We arrived at 14:40 for lunch. Since this was right on Stanislas Place, we expected little for a high price. We were wrong! The prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food. The service by our waiter, Adrien, was attentive, very friendly, always with a smile, yet unobtrusive without rushing us. In fact, his service was... More

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.
