Description: Friendly hosts and good food, together with a beautiful courtyard full of flowers - what more could you want for a relaxing lunch or afternoon tea. Open late on Friday evenings in the summer, the cafe provides a perfect meeting place for a meal or a drink and an evening with friends. Draught beers and Irish cider available, together with good local French wines and beers. All food is home-cooked to order and the English sponge cakes are the best around!

“A lovely cafe overlooking the village square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

If you are a regular visitor to France you will know that many restaurants close after lunch, leaving you stranded if you are travelling. They serve the full three courses which you don't want if you are out for dinner. If you are in search of light lunch or afternoon tea this little gem is ideal. Karen and Paul were very friendly and the food was tasty. Its right in the hear of the village so you can watch the world go by.

“A little gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Paul and Karen work hard to constantly improve their delightful little cafe in the heart of Vouvant. From the extensive lunch menu written in French and English to the superb array of home made cakes always on offer this little gem is a delightful place to recharge after a long journey.

“We love this cafe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Right in the centre of the village, this is real community cafe. The hosts, Paul and Karen, go out of their way to make you feel welcome, even when they're really busy. The food is great quality and always fresh and presented beautifully - my husband even eats the salad garnishes and, as anyone who knows him, that's unheard of! Karen bakes fresh cakes daily and they are definitely worth the extra work needed to work off the calories afterwards! When we're on holiday, we always make a visit to the cafe.
