“Exceptional meal for a cafe”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We stopped here on our way thru because of TA recommendations. We had Beef pie and it was the best we ever had. The beef was tender and tasty and the crust fluffy. Superb coffee as well. Well worth a special trip and certainty worth stopping in if your hungry and in the area.

“Continues to please”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We lunched at Mirabelles recently and were not disappointed. An amazing array of goodies guaranteed to satisfy. I have discovered the beef pies - with a little side of salad (to keep it healthy) - will really have to try something else. great cabinet food as well as menu. Good coffee. Genuine French service!!

“A must visit - even if you're passing through”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Apparently the genius behind the kitchen isn't French, but you could never tell by the food. Light and buttery croissants, rabbit pie with flaky pastry and coffee to knock your socks off. The decor and food take you half a world away to a Cafe tucked away in the Marais district of Paris. Don't drive through Caterton. Make any excuse you can to stop at Mirabelle.
