Reasonably priced lunch for tasty duck, salad and frites which included a drink and dessert. Nice quiet spot in the sun away from the overcrowded main square.

Came here for a drink at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. Virtually as soon as we had been served the coffee, the two girls started clearing away all the tables and stacking the chairs away - odd at 2.15pm. I am sure that it was nothing that I had said!!

They serve tasty crepes, gauffres (Belgian waffles), and have nice light lunch meals. The service was good, even on a super busy day 7/14 (Bastille Day). Come sit outside on the patio or inside on a cold or rainy day. It is a rather small place but cozy and friendly.

Super quick service... maybe even a bit too quick. Too the duck and my son the children menu. Good price quality. And desert was a crepe with sugar. Nice terrace outside the wind.

Good value for the cheap fixed price menu and the food and cooking was okay for the price. Limited range of menu choice and the service by the two young serving ladies was not very efficient and also one dessert wrongly supplied in spite of the order clearly made in accurate French. Plenty of other eating places exist nearby and... More

Located in a small square in the sun. We did not eat but just stopped by for refreshments. Busy with lots of tourists made the service a little slow.

They do a lovely cup of tea and the service from the gentleman that served us was excellent he was very friendly and helpful. The food was good. However the two younger members of staff gave the impression they would rather have been somewhere else than work!

Time for a drink and snack during a showery day in the old Cite. This place looked charming, but they offered no help in drying the wet seats, so it was a DIY job. The coffee was ok, but over priced and not really 'long' enough to be classed as an 'Americano'.

My husband and I have travelled all of Europe and I speak a bit of French. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. We ordered the 17 euro menu. We waited a half an hour for the soup. When I noticed that others around who sat after us and ordered the same item, the steak and fries and... More

We took the 17€ menu. Onion soup was to salty, Serrano ham was good. Cassoulet is not my favorite meal but I suppose it was ok. The tagliatelle with 4 kinds of cheese was very average. The ice cream was very good. The included wine was ok. Overall an ok lunch for an ok price, considering the location.
