Nice place for a beer and snack while visiting the area. Outdoor area is relaxing with great view of the bridge and surrounding area.

Rain or shine this cafe/restaurant is friendly reasonably priced and perched on the caen canal. Take a table outside and watch the boats go by and the famous Pegasus Bridge raise and lower.

Adequate for a quick light lunch, nothing special. Good for children - chips, sausage, omelettes, sandwiches etc. We did ask for an extra plate to give a bit of food to a 2 and half year old in our group which we never received. He ate off mum's plate!

14 of us and a few people inside. We waited nearly an hour for chips and omelette dishes, and similar easy food, had to chase twice and was told they were busy, not sure who with. When the food did come it all came at once but was cold, clearly it was being held up so it could all come... More

It's average, folks, probably just the thing you want for a quick light lunch from a limited menu (eg, omelettes, sandwiches, crepes ). They serve fries with everything, but to can sub a salad for it.

Great for a spot of lunch after visiting The Pegasus Memorial. It has a nice outdoor patio overlooking the river where it's pleasant to sit and watch the world go by. Not a huge selection, but the food was freshly cooked, tasty and arrived quickly despite the place being quite busy. The waitresses were friendly and helpful and tolerated our... More

Nice cafe in prime location to visit Normandy and Pegasus Bridge. Prices were average to other cafes we visited. The service was exceptionally friendly. Our waitress was happy to attend to us and our kids stumbling over ordering our food in English, she was patient and spoke English herself, she even taught us some French. The cafe's decor is cute...

After reading lots of negative reviews, I have to disagree based on my recent experience. Yes, a basic lunchtime menu but not overpriced in my opinion. Lots of waitresses who were enthusiastice and welcoming. Fast delivery of simple food for our party of ten people, all seated outside on a sunny day. Draught beer selection above average. Preferred this place... More

Friendly staff who speak English. Plenty of seating inside and out. Varied menu, reasonable prices. This restaurant / cafe is situated on the river by Pegasus bridge. I had the sandwich which is a baguette and is enough to share.
