We were two Americans exploring Normandy. Stopped in early, just as Virgil was opening the Cafe. He made us each a great Latte, had a nice chat and he gave us advice on where to go and what to do in the area. Perfect start to the day!

If you want large American style coffee head over to The Fruity Cafe where the friendly staff will chat to you with great English whilst you wait for your takeaway - also a nice seating area inside or outside. Clean loo inside as well.

We went here for breakfast and had a very pleasant experience. The man serving us spoke perfect English and was extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our tea/coffee and small pastries, but we wished the breakfast menu had more food items. It's mostly drinks and fruit smoothies. It was also a bit pricey for what we got: about 20 euro...

Our visit was brief as we had to catch a train and the cafe did not open until 9am. Lot's of drinks to chose from and happy for us to eat our shop bought pastries with our drinks. Smoothie, milk-shake and coffee all excellent and would say it's a great place to pop in for a drink.

The gentleman who helped us was very friendly, and spoke great English. You could tell the staff cared about the service and product they produced. It was one of the best cups of coffee we had in Normandy.

Finding an early breakfast that was more than a croissant wasn't easy. Stumbled upon The Fruity Cafe and got just what we wanted! Virgil, the barista, speaks excellent English. He directed us across the street to a bakery where we purchased a cheese and tomatoe tarte and a pain au raisins. Carried them back to an outdoor table where Virgil... More

Lovely place for a coffee, just by the castle and in sight of the church. Lots of hot and cold drinks on the menu - very difficult to choose. Very friendly and spoke very good English! Great service. Although no breakfast pastries on offer, happy for us to eat some we'd bought from a local patisserie. Would definitely return.

Very nice and bubbly staff, perfect location and excellent smoothies, cappuccinos, teas, mochas and more! Lovely place to take a break and get an energy boost while in the centre ville of Caen.

Found this cafe early one morning. We're not really lovers of espresso coffee, prefering a latte. This guy made a fab latte with swirling caramel on top. Very friendly towards us, a big smile first thing in the morning :)
