3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

it's a normal place where to eat something, reminds me of le pain quotidien for the wooden tables and the blackboards. food is normal, not the best place in the city.

“Great little place for a relaxed brunch.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Nice place to pass some time. Its nothing special just typically French. This square is away from the hustle and bustle of the city center. Try the Quiche - it's served with fresh salad and is really tasty. The usual choices for continental breakfast like rolls, Danishes and croissants etc with tea, coffee or pastis is always there.

“Yummy breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

My second visit to Bordeaux and second time to Karl's for breakfast. Lots of choice and better value than hotel breakfasts.

Although a little cramped inside there is a pleasant atmosphere and the location on a square means you can sit and watch the world go by!

There was a short but worthwhile wait for our order to be taken because it was so busy at the time we chose to go.

I had eggs cocotte which were lovely and hot. The portion sizes were good ... Varied choices of bread and croissants for the set menu we chose. Some menus are like a formule and include two drinks - juice and coffee. The latte was delicious - large, creamy and nice and hot.

Just what you need to set you up for the day enjoying sightseeing in Bordeaux.

“nice concept and atmosphere, very very slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you are in Bordeaux and want a breakfast, this is the place to go. They offer different combinations of breakfasts and a lovely atmosphere. In general, this place would be perfect if there would be one more waiter to serve the clients. The owner of this place should think about hiring one more person, which would bring higher effectiveness. Even though the waitress gave the best she could, It was a bit too much to wait 30 minutes for a cup of coffee, and the place was half full in that moment.

“Great for lunch or coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

The salad here is refreshing and delicious! The carrot cake muffins and the chocolate fondant are amazing, really really worth trying and dealing with the sometimes crowdedness of the place! Also great for tea drinkers- lots of selections!
