Very friendly staff, they do the best almond crossiants I have ever tasted. Great coffee too. The eggs are always fresh, very good place to stop to have coffee and cake.

Stopped here for a last minute brunch with a friend. We had a lovely traditional French breakfast; small coffee, orange juice and a breakfast of choice which we both chose a croque monsieur. It was lovely! Great value too.
