The portion are huge at this brasserie at the main avenue of Pontarlier. They have a lunch set for 8 EUR and the service is friendly. I had the saucisse de Marceau with morilles mushrooms, my GF a mix platter with sausages and ham. The café gourmand was equally interesting.

We had a great experience discovering Brasserie Le Grand Cafe Francais. We visit Sainte-Croix in Switzerland, and I just get fed up with how weak the dollar is against the Swiss Franc.

Visited café many times over the last 3 years and always enjoyed our lunch time experience. The food is cooked fresh , good sized portions and arrives quickly with a smile from the service staff. The environment is traditional French café style which I love plus clean (including the toilets).
