I have visited three times now and each time the food was deliciously fresh and carefully served. The menu is short and sweet, just what I enjoy, all freshly made. The coffee is good too.

Great choice of light lunches on a rainy day in Poundbury, also delicious home-made cakes. Lovely welcoming atmosphere, we were looked after very well. Will definitely recommend to friends in Bristol.

Went to one of the themed supper evenings. This was the curry supper the cardamon butter chicken was just right and the side dishes complemented it so well. Loved the lime posset and coconut biscuit. Looking forward to the next one. Very small cafe but such lovely food.

A small cosy friendly french style cafe. The food is limited in choice but always freshly cooked. There is always a tasty patisserie to take away!

Stopped in for a quick lunch with a friend. It was bustling but service was prompt and friendly. I had the tart with salad. Really yummy and nicely presented. I ended up giving in to the divine blueberry and coconut cake that was tormenting me from the counter. I am so glad that I did! Everything was clearly freshly made... More
