This little outdoor restaurant, located across the LOVE hotel, serves amazing crepes! I preferred to order a la carte rather than eating from the buffet. My typical order consisted of eggs (fried, scrambled, or omelete) with a side of bacon, plus a crepe (either plain, nutella or butter and sugar, which was my favorite). Service was OK, and was much... More

Not impressed by pretty much the only place open for breakfast in grand case, the milk tasted sour and was warm and not much to choose from menu wise. If you end up here don't eat from the buffet, get something from the extra menu which is made fresh and not sitting around.

It is a breakfast buffet, but selection is sparse,the cost should be considerably less. Dirt floor, ricketychairs, lukewarm coffee. Most eateries inGrand Case take dollars at par with Euro,not here.. Items are what one would get in Canada/usa as part of any hotel stay, continental style. €23 for 2? Poor value.

We dined here twice, had great food and service both times. First time, my wife had the buffet, while I had eggs, bacon and a crepe. My wife loved the yogurt, granola, fruit and other fresh, healthy options. My food was perfect! The eggs and bacon were great, and the crepe was very tasty. On top of all this, they... More

A very nice and warm welcome by the french couple who own this place. The food was very tasty and fresh. You can see they put a lot of effort and they love what they do. Highly recommended

Had a really nice glass of Rose with a crepe. This is a charming establishment that is only open for breakfast/lunch, I believe. I liked the garden and the cute concept store on site. The owner is a former teacher and she did a great job taking good care of her customers. Very kind and gracious. I enjoyed El Cafecito... More

Gran Case has so many restaurants, but if you're looking for an evening snack, I recommend stopping at El Cafecito. Cute outdoor cafe seating, leave-wrapped napkins and stone serving plates really made this place stand out. We got a dessert crepe, with Nutella, bananas and ice cream, it was one of the best, good size and a lovely presentation- makes... More

Do not pass up going here for some Crepes. We went there for an evening snack after it was recommended to us by another guest of our hotel. We were not disappointed! The crepes are huge and cooked to perfection. The staff is friendly and if they are not busy they will sit and talk with you if you like.... More

Cafecito is a wonderful, eclectic hidden gem in grand case. The atmosphere is bohemian with greenery, mis-matched chairs and cushions and just quaint. The menu is in a composition book and consists of small plates/tapas. Food is served on pieces of slate creatively in various containers (risotto in small clear jars) and is tasty. Cafecito is a must every time... More
