I would come back for more food, more plants. They have also a organic/artesanal market. It is worth visiting. Calm place, quiet and nature-filled gardens and restaurant area.

My husband and I really enjoyed breakfast here. I especially recommend the crepe filled with fresh fruit and then topped with yogurt and granola. The grounds are beautiful. Be sure to give yourself enough time to explore! There is wifi.

My husband and I recently ate lunch here and were impressed by the quality of the food, the fast service and the pretty setting. Their bread is homemade and delicious! After eating, there are a few artisan stores to shop in by the restaurant.
