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

The service was very nice here. My husband and I enjoyed our tea very much. The cakes weren't to our liking (I found them to be a bit on the dense side, and the flavors a bit flowery or perfume-y); I think this is because we are accustomed to different kinds of cakes, and prefer other types of pastries. Also,... More

Whatever restaurant you go to in Rouen, skip desert and come here. The cakes & pies are lethal. Delicious, filling and made-to-perfection. There's an inside section and outside courtyard, but there's never any room. You'll need to queue up for a free table, but it's worth it. You can also obviously come here in between meals. Service can be a... More
