Superb eatery with wonderful ambiance and music!

The old general store was transformed into a charming and well appointed restaurant. The food was well prepared and delicious. Lunch menu was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Oh my Goodness! After eating at a total of 11 restaurants & cafés on Iles de la Madeleine over the past week, this wonderful café was by far our very favourite!! The two young women (in their 20's) who own this charming place have managed to create the perfect, inviting, relaxed ambiance that not only invites you to come in... More

Stopped in for lunch based on some review from Trip Advisor. The cafe has a great ambience and friendliness to it. I ordered a Ciabatta with veggie spread and salad. I finished lunch with a local blueberry cheesecake and coffee. My wife ordered a basic croissant ham and cheese with salad. She finished her lunch with a chocolate cake. The... More

We stopped here following a recommendation and boy are we glad we did! After selecting a nice table in the corner, we sat down and ordered some very good local beers (from the nearby microbrewery). It is then a musician started playing some amazing jazz tunes on the piano. Heaven. We decided to order some of their specialties and share... More

Cafe de la Grave is in the middle of shops in la Grave. Although small food is excellent and service very attentive. Plus there is also wonderful local musicians who certainly are the dessert!

Came here after a cycling excursion around the island loop. Really enjoyed rustic authentic vibe this place exudes with the piano in the corner and artisan decor. The service was a tad on the slow side in spite of us being there mid afternoon and there were only a few patrons already inside. The food was decent and cold local... More
