we loved the atmosphere. Our guide told us these she thought this was the best snack place in town. Unlike her, we did not test out the competition, but we liked the atmosphere, the hot chocolate & cake, the cakes and the price. Give this one a try. M

When weather permits, the garden is a must. the restaurant serves excellent and not too expensive food. The service staff is nice and dedicated. A very nice place to rest while having lunch.

English + Français An adorable little cafe; very feminine and dainty on the inside. Two levels both are which are small. Good selection of cakes/ desserts (over 10) available, as well as teas (around 15). It is pricey but you know that going in- you are paying for the allure of going. There was a line up when I went...

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.
