We dropped in for coffee and baguette, essentially on a whim as we had been walking quite a lot in orientating ourselves on our short break in the city and required R&R. A great find. French to the core - and that's not a bad thing - with lovely coffee and yummy fresh bread AND friendly staff. Recommended.

I like the very French atmosphere in the place. The baguette is absolutely perfect and the soup with baguette makes an excellent lunch. On the downside (leading to one star deduction): it seems not all of the sweet pastries are made freshly on a daily basis as I recently had a slightly dry Eclaire. But overall it's a great place to have breakfast/lunch or just coffee...

Extremely disappointed in the way we were treated when my husband and two daughters and I arrived to have lunch. We arrived at 1.35pm and asked to be seated at a table reserved from 1pm but clearly was still empty. The waitress who was exceedingly rude refused to give us the table (even though those who booked were nearly 40 minutes late!) and then PULLED A FACE when we suggested we sit at two other tables in order to leave the reserved table reserved! She actually shrugged her shoulders and appeared to be irritated that we were there at all! How rude she was. Needless to say we left. So barantine you have lost 4 customers and a lot more besides after I've finished telling everyone I know about the unbelievable behaviour of one of your staff. What a shame. We've enjoyed our visits - up until now. Appalling. Honestly appalling.

Looks good, nice 'French' bakery ambiance but the food food looks better than it looks. Coffee, teas, cakes and pastries. Table seating for about 12.
