5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

Friendly cafe with great coffee, authentic French staff. Pain au chocolat to die for. Well worth a visit.

“Oh bliss!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

What a find. Really wish we'd discovered this cafe before we had a mediocre lunch at a nearby pub. Real traditional, french cooking - we had a sublime Tarte Normande with our teas, but on the menu were lots of good sounding savoury items as well, all clearly freshly cooked. Really lovely cafe, very friendly, nice atmosphere, good value and all too easy to miss.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Delicious, authentic french food (and staff), served in a typical café setting. I always come after an exam for a cake and a citron pressé and it's fantastic!

“Regular Visitor to this Cafe - I love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

We heart Cafe St Pierre! Best filled baguettes in town, especially when Michele has some special smelly french cheese in!
Go here, have a croissant for breakfast, come back and have lunch then go back later in the afternoon for a cup of tea and a slice of cake or a palmier! (or a waffle, and make sure you ask for it warm - so good!)
They also have a lovely courtyard garden which is a delight in the summer.

“Amazing French Croissants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

We had an amazing croissant filled with ham and cheese. It was delicious! The deserts are also amazing - decadent, and very french.
