“french fancies galore”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Visited this café for lunch and treat this afternoon and what a pleasant experience it was. Recently opened on Warwick street for easy access, the window display of pretty cakes and vintage crockery was enough to draw me in! The decor reflects a true French café and the beautiful array of cakes from salted caramel macaroons to raspberry mille feuille was incredible. My friend and I both decided on the reasonably priced lunch menu of a main, cake and a drink. The croques were very tasty but the cakes were the real deal. We shared a vanilla custard slice and a chocolate praline mousse cake - best patisseries have had in a long time! Presented beautifully as if in a Parisien café, they tasted as good as they looked. The staff were very helpful and friendly and I will definitely be returning to try out more of what's on offer! Thoroughly recommend.

“A Touch of France”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Visited this little cafe for lunch today. Nice feeling about it, very french in style, cakes amazing, the cabinet seems to be groaning with them. I had a toasted french sandwich with goats cheese which I must say was delicous, had a bit of trouble with the plate flipping up when trying to cut through my sandwich, something to do with the design and I wasnt keen on the plastic tablecloths but the service was very good and the ambiance delighful. There is a nice selection for lunch, they also do breakfast and afternoon tea. I will definitely go again.

“Food as it should be.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Recently opened and beautifully decorated it drew me in. Quirky seating....a bath as a sofa for example, compliments the general friendly feel of the place.I had the lunch special...any drink,any main, any cake for 9.95. Coffee great, toasted french emmantel sandwich great and the cakes, best selection in leamington...fantastic, highly recommend.

“A little slice of Paris”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Visited for Coffee and Cake and given a very friendly welcome.

The cakes themselves are brilliant - so much choice! The coffee is excellent too.

This place has a very authentic French feel to it, and is a great way to escape rainy Leamington for an hour.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

This place is amazing. They make you feel very welcome when you come in. The coffee and cakes are amazing. It makes you feel like your in france and that your out of the busy town of leamington. I have recommended this place to all my friends to go and try.

Also I had a hand made birthday cake from them and it was amazing. So will be going back there again.
