My office is just beside the place and it is indeed idyllic! Summer time afternoons are a must, you may get a spontaneous concert and when sun comes down, they turn on little lights for a romantic "soiree" ambiance. Great and healthy food

This sweet cafe is only open in summer and is a must-go! The atmosphere is great, in a nice park (Mon-Repos), under the trees... You can taste a great cafe glacé made with lemon zest, they have nice tartines too with good cheese. I know they have a great brunches on weekends too, but I've never tried them. No reservations...
