Take the natural one and enjoy. Small cup of water and you're all set. The staff is the smiling type and there are all sort of travel books to make you smarter. Cocoa.

We stopped by for a light lunch and enjoyed delicious homemade smoked salmon quiche with salad. Service was with a smile and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food.

By far the cosiest and nicest place to enjoy any kind of hot drink, snack - salted or sweet, light lunch or afternoon tea in Avallon. In winter time you'll appreciate the warm wooden decor of a bourgeois town-house, and in the summer the peaceful little courtyard. For a salted meal try the heavenly Gougères filled with Epoisses, in my... More
