My husband and I went to try out this restaurant for breakfast this week as it's very close to our hotel, and we read the reviews were good...
A cute place, nice, peaceful and quiet, but not luxurious, only us and another couple there, so far so good...
What I first noticed when giving the menu was that it was no prices there, I thought that wasn't very good, however, when asked they told me that it was 'around' $35 (Caribbean) each...OK then.
The menu was nice but limited, we like most things, so that wasn't a problem for us, my husband ordered croque monsieur, which he liked very much, and I, scrambled eggs, potatoes and ham, we had two fruit juices (very nice) and two coffees to strong to drink!
So it all was nice enough, for a breakfast, my biggest problem was the bill, it costed more that the night before at dinner (and we had lobster and wine....) we didn't have enough Caribbean dollars, as we didn't think it was going to cost that much, when the past it to US dollars, they added an extra 6 US to the bill, which I didn't apreciated, but never mentioned...we paid £27.50 for breakfast! They caught us there, but unfortunately, we won't come back!
I think what they need to do is to look around and see what their competition is, the restaurants around this area offer excellent food, at excellent value for money, that is something that they don't, their food is nice, but very average, you pay as much as you pay for dinner elsewhere, and all you had is eggs and coffee?!
Any where around that area is much better, Umbrellas is excellent and much cheaper, cocktails included.....Sangria Bar is Morne Rouge is great too...in my opinion, all they need to do is lower the prices, and instead of a couple of people there, the place would be full, a pity really, when you think they can do so much better!

At Le Papillion Cafe we pride ourselves in preparing quality food using the freshest of ingredients including freshly squeezed juices daily and home made breads and jams for example, (jams would have been served complimentary with your breakfast), which you would not get in any other restaurant in Grenada. From what you described, your breakfast should have been approximately EC $55.00 each for you and your husband and would have included a full breakfast, a glass of juice and a coffee. We do not add any extra charges to the final bill and I am surprised when you mentioned that the staff had added US $6.00 more to your bill. From your description, you should not have paid more than EC $110.00 for a full breakfast for two people, which would be approximately $22.00 pounds or US $41.00 or $11.00 pounds or US $20.00 each. Our customers being overcharged is a concern to us at Le Papillion, and we would have appreciated you letting management know should this have happened.
