Stopped in for an early dinner our first night in Caen. I had an onion omelet that was cooked perfectly, along with their roasted potatoes. A perfect combination since I wasn’t too hungry. Liked the size of this little café and the way it was decorated. Bustling with locals so it feels like I found... read more

My family and I dined here this evening. Service and food preparation were all performed by one talented gentleman. Delicious crepes! Recommendation: no matter how full you may be, order dessert.
