My wife and I visited L'Atelier for breakfast during July 2016. We enjoyed our breakfast, nutella crepes, eggs, bagel sandwich, and yogurt, etc. We loved the outside seating which was right downtown in the center of the city near the canal. Very much felt like what we expected from a French cafe. The wait staff was helpful. In fact we... More

We stopped here for lunch after arriving from Chamonix after a recommendation from the front desk at the Mont Blanc Hotel. We were not disappointed. We ordered salads and were delighted with the quick service, well, prepared, fresh and interesting combinations, and the sunshine and great view. A lovely spot to have a nice meal, in the center of town,... More

We stopped off for a quick drink. We sat inside, although most customers were sitting outside in the sun. Even though we were the only people sitting in our part of the café we seemed to go unnoticed for a long time and felt even more neglected when a couple who came in afterwards were served before us. When we... More

He then proceeded to snatch the menu out of my wife's hand and slam it down on the table next to us . When the crepes arrived... More
