This place is such a breath of fresh air in Victoria - so different from the usual take-away or shops selling concentrated sugar juices. The atmosphere inside is fantastic - the staff greet you immediately (you don't see that everyday!), the colorful walls and music are a nice touch. The choice is great; juices, smoothies, crepes, salads etc. However be sure to have cash on you as they don't have a card machine. I would have surely bought a crepe and a cheesecake if I could have used my card.

GREAT place. Well done.

This was perhaps the most attractive eatery I saw on the whole of Mahé. The standard of cleanliness was exceptional and the attentiveness of the staff perfect. I started with a traditional Creole Crêpe with fish and spicy tomato sauce (Hold the cheese!) and finished with a Summertime smoothie.
The freshness of the food is the key here. So much of the food I have eaten on Mahé has a tired feeling. This was vibrant. Malaika and Olivier are upping their game and I wish them every success.
Soon to be introduced with be crêpes made from Atta flour, milled from durum wheat. I teased Olivier about Blé noir or sarrasin flour used for crepes in Brittany, perhaps this could be the next experiment?
The smoothie was just perfect, bursting with goodness, so if you enjoy fresh food please step in and enjoy!

Delicious raspberry/apple mixed drink. Had the Hawaiian savory crepe & Nutella/banana/coconut crepe. Both were great! FYI: only 2 seats in the store.

We love this original and healthy alternative to all the take aways and snackbars you find on Mahé and Victoria. We used to go to the Bazar in Beau Vallon on wednesday evenings especially to enjoy the delicious crepes, freshly baked by Malaika and Olivier. So we were very excited that they were opening a little eatery right in the center of town where they not only serve these famous sweet crepes, but also savoury pancakes, delicious fresh smoothies and juices, homemade cakes, and very healthy and tasty salads. It's quick, it's very affordable and it's fresh and healthy. You can sit in or take out, location is great and food always good. There should be more eateries like this!

We only found out about this little cafe on our last day in Victoria. If we had found it sooner,we would have visited it every time we went into Victoria! It is easy to find and is perfect for cooling off after a trip to the main market in Victoria. Everything is freshly made and is very good value, local, affordable prices! Staff are friendly and the snacks are delicious. We hope it is still there in 2 years when we next visit Mahe.
