We were a day late. New owners-disappointing meal. The croque madam was bland and not at all what I had expected. The lattes were actually bad, tasted like they came out of a machine marked ‘latte’. The baguette was tasty but pretty dense for a...More

This cafe was recommended to us by the barman at LG’s. He was not wrong. Excellent coffee and homemade croissants! On the weekends you may have to line up but it is well worth it.

Really lovely little place for breakfast. Owned by a French couple and very relaxing place to laze about and listen to classic french music whilst eating delicious french food. Great coffee. Cheap mimosa's and great apple beignets (french style)

Very cute little place with indoor and outdoor seating. The decor was a little quirky but the food more than makes up for the confusing “style”. All delicious French food and the owners are French so you can’t go wrong.
