We ate a goat cheese tartlette and a quiche lorraine, which both were very tasty! The staff is super friendly and recommended some sightseeing spots. It's a highly recommendable restaurant!

If the weather is nice, eating in the garden behind the cafe is a nice option. Sumptuous deserts are available too!
