You walk by and you see a smiling moose holding a sign that says: smiling is mandatory. You can't help but smile and walk on to the beautiful terrase. The pancakes were excellent, and their breakfasts come with a small smoothie that's delicious. And wait until you go to the bathroom... Either you'll smile again or worse, lol

Very nice place to go to have a good time and enjoying an excellent meal on a nice terrace under a flowering apple tree in May. The mix of the "saveur" is original.

My omelet was rubbery despite the fact that the filling was very yummy. The homemade jam was good, as was the mini-smoothie served instead of fruit (great idea). My partner said his croissant was excellent, and our coffees were good too. The decor and ambiance are great.

Friendliness, fun, wonderful menu, great atmosphere - and what presentation! I went to have my favorite breakfast - croissant and cappuccino - after someone in the area recommended this cafe to moi.

Great little café! Warm atmosphere, original design, even more original recipes prepared with home-made quality... If I had a chance to have a restaurant like "C'est La Vie" café close to my home, that would have been my regular lunch place.

Nice place, good food, very friendly and helpful staff. They speak English well. The soup and pancake was AMAZING. They even made my favourite topping especially for my daughter, who didn’t like any of them from the menu. They have a great outdoor place as well. I will visit them again!

This should be the rated as the best food experience in Val David. The staff are so much fun and the carrot and spice soup exemplary. Do not be surprised if this becomes a chain bigger and better than Starbucks.

This place has big potential. The staff is very friendly and you can get just about any type of coffee; tea; and treat imaginable. The presentation of the food is fantastic. Pros: Great food and drinks Cons: Two coffees and treats will run you about $20, and the dishes they serve your drinks in are getting old. Change them!!

We are having lunch here right now and I couldn't wait to write my review. Cute decor, delicious homemade food, great presentation (soup in jars, sandwiches wrapped in brown paper and twine), and super friendly staff. The music is fun, there are dozens of cookbooks to read, and the menus are on chalkboards. Can't wait to spend a few hours... More
