Round the corner from our hotel we found this great cafe serving great food and went each morning. Had lunch on our last day only as previously we were touristing. Look and find it, well worth it.

The location, the atmosphere, the menu, the homemade jam and orange juice in the morning, the soup, and salad with fig and goat cheese for lunch, and the coffee all the time, and above all the great service, Adorable et savoureux.

Great place to grab a coffee and enjoy the view. Not a very big menu but my toast with Jamon Serrano was tasty.
