Pleasant surprise

This lively coffee shop is located within walking distance of the Medina. The service is excellent and the sorbet is delicious and nicely served with a sprig of mint. It is definitely a place to relax and people-watch!

Nice place and well located in Avenue Bourguiba which you must visit. This is situated about half way in the avenue so worth popping in for a coffee as you walk up (or down) the avenue.

A welcome respite from the typically crowded spaces that I encountered in Tunis although a few smoke bombs managed to reach us.Decent service and a good although limited menu. Food was delicious and the ambience lent itself to a relaxed time.The review would have improved with a smoke free environment.

In the middle of Avenue Bourghiba, next to the small and gracious art nouveau theatre, you find this large café-restaurant with a limited though reasonable menu of french-italian-mediterranean cuisine and with pleasant open air terraces. Service is quite friendly and professional for the (very low) standards of the tunisian capital. Restrooms always found clean during several visits. This café sadly... More

The price is okay and so is the atmosphere, but It should not take 45 minutes for a hamburger.............

If you are strolling around in Tunis answer to the Champs Elysees and is keen on an espresso ... stop here! Very stylish and vibrant cafe. It's worth a stop and an interesting feature of this city.
