Love this place for it's nice selection of light meals, sandwiches, salads, cakes and drinks. It's a French cafe with nice atmosphere, and seating indoors and outdoors. There are two branches in Bahrain, one in Aali Mall and another in Adliya Boulevard where all the nice restaurants are located. It is a walking distance from the Gulf Hotel.

I've been here twice now and enjoyed it both times. It does a good breakfast menu and has an extensive menu during the rest of the day. A lovely atmosphere with a good mix of expat and local customers.
