“Some will like it better than others”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The service was very nice here. My husband and I enjoyed our tea very much. The cakes weren't to our liking (I found them to be a bit on the dense side, and the flavors a bit flowery or perfume-y); I think this is because we are accustomed to different kinds of cakes, and prefer other types of pastries. Also, the seating downstairs was frilly, and a bit cramped. It's evident that many, many customers love this place. I really think it's a matter of tastes. So please don't let this review deter you if you want to try it out.

“The one place you got to go to for desert”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Whatever restaurant you go to in Rouen, skip desert and come here. The cakes & pies are lethal. Delicious, filling and made-to-perfection.

There's an inside section and outside courtyard, but there's never any room. You'll need to queue up for a free table, but it's worth it. You can also obviously come here in between meals.

Service can be a bit slow since the waitresses need to go up & down a lot of stairs, just be patient. It'll be worth it.

When you enter the shop, you can see many of the cakes you order in front.

“Lovely place”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

The interior of this tea shop is beautiful, the upstairs has a view of the cathedral and in summer you can sit in the terrace at the back if it is warm. The baking is delicious and it is always difficult to chose what to have as there are so many nice tasting home made cakes to chose from. There is a large choice of hot chocolates and teas for cold days in the winter and the light lunch is quite good. The prices are on the high side however worth it for the quality of the food and the decor of the place.

“Nice”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stopped by the place after visiting the Cathedral across the street. Small place, good and decent food although the cake slices could have been a little thicker.
We had two hot chocolates and 2 slices of cakes for about 25 Euros (roughly CAD 38). A bit pricy.
