Great place for a tea

It is a great place for some tea and/or cake. Even though it was a bit small for family of four, we had a great time at this cozy restaurant, with a good service and a very nice and cute ambience. The meal was great as well, specially the chocolate cake!

We had a coffe and a chocolate milk, and two pieces of cake: we paid 19€! That's not so much , if it would be the best cake in the world , which they weren't. Above all : the service was like a factory, with little personal input . Shame, because it's a cute little place.

Every time you pass by this place it is always full of people and very often with a long queue outside. Went there once with friends and honestly I have had better cakes somewhere else many times. Especially the cup cakes were a bit too dense and greasy for my taste. I can see that there is an ambience element... More

We happened upon this charming tea place by chance, found an enchanting garden and had some lovely tea aux fruits roses plus a great tarte aux poires

This little place sits in the shadow of the Cathedrale Notre Dame. Our tour guide told us about this place and said they have the best pastries/desserts in town. We stopped here for an afternoon snack; we bought several treats to share, and everything was so delicious!

You get coffee or chocolat with a perfect cake. Be sure you have enough time to enjoy it! The best place for you afternoon coffee after you visit the Rouen Cathedral.

I had heard about Dame Cakes, and visiting it, all my expectations were met. First of all, it is decorated beautifully and looks like something out of a fairy tale. Secondly, I bought some chocolate mixed with fruit and nuts, and it was absolutely scrumptious. I wanted to go back a second time, but it was the May Day holiday... More

This place was very popular when I was here in February. We had to wait in line for about 15 minutes....my husband was drooling at all the baked goods by the storefront window! Once we were seated it was super cramped! However, the teas and cakes were scrumptious. :)

A nice place near the Cathedral. Good selection of cakes and beverages - teas, coffees and hot chocolates. Friendly staff and nice interior. A good idea to stop for a while especially on a rainy day.

We took the train from Paris to Rouen where we picked up a car to drive to Normandy and Brittany. We took a few hours in Rouen to see the Joan of Arc Cathedral and had lunch at Dame Cakes. It was so wonderful that five days later when we returned the car, we went back for lunch before catching... More
