Separate veggie menu and the goats cheese and Portobello burger was beautiful. But do take your own drink if you want booze as they don't have a licence.

Just went in for a quick coffee and cake. Was really tastey and enjoyable. The place is pretty busy and the prices are very fair.

The French Village Botanic is a hidden gem. The menu range is fantastic- from simple baps to full cooked breakfasts to pancake stacks. I can highly recommend the eggs Benedict! We also sampled the patisserie counter... the cakes are amazing! We will be going back!...More

Called into French village for breakfast after many recommendations. I was not disappointed I had the brioche French toast and it was very tasty. Really enjoyable way to start the day. My mum had the apple and cinnamon pancakes and that was just as nice.
