We have now returned to Gaillard Gourmand on several occasions taking friends with us on a number of those occasions. The quality remains very high and we have recently eaten some of the different varieties of quiche on offer along with the excellent, and varied, salad as well as Bob's home made bread. This makes for a delicious and filling lunch but we still make room to enjoy our choice from the excellent cakes and some of the best coffee you will find anywhere. Our hosts continue to offer a warm welcome and do all they can to ensure we enjoy our visit. Again I would say well worth a visit if you are in the area!

Thank Paul W

Thank you Paul. We will miss your company and our weekly talks! Can't wait to see you back in France and perhaps surprise you with new ideas or just with apple pie!

We stopped by for a light lunch. The dish of the day, a vegetable pie with salad, sounded like the perfect solution. The pie, however, was like cardboard, very dried out from sitting in the oven. Carrot cake for dessert was good, although not exceptional. Very refreshing, homemade iced tea.

Prices are reasonable and the service is very friendly.

Thank you for leaving a review. We do our best to serve fresh, daily home-made lunches and cakes and I am so sorry to read that your lunch did not meet these expectations. Kind regards Marjolein

At Gaillard Gourmand you'll feel at home straight away. A cozy tea room that serves a good selection of pukka teas, excellent coffee and a variety of home made cakes by Marjolein. Or try the quiche and salad for a light lunch, with freshly baked bread by Bob.

Gaillard Gourmand offers an excellent mix between Dutch (don't forget to try the apple pie or boterkoek), French and English and is a perfect place to start your day with a cuppa and the news or a good book. The roof terrace at the back is the perfect Zen place!

Thank you Leontien for this lovely review. It describes exactly what I had in mind when designing the café's interior and it's good to know that it works! See you on your next visit. Team GG

In my traveling experience, the local cafe is the best way to get a feel for a place. A visit to Gaillard Gourmand will make you feel welcome, appreciated and wonderfully well fed! Breakfast or Lunch the selection is great and the coffee is good. (There is also a fantastic selection of tea, which they know how to prepare perfectly) Don't miss Bob's bread - famous in town really - and made on the spot. They make an incredible goat cheese and onion chutney grilled sandwich (served with a fantastic green salad) and don't overlook the quiche: made daily from scratch. The carrot cake is also excellent.

Marjolein Gaillard's new café in Excideuil is fantastic! Perfect coffee, lovely Dutch-inspired pastries, cupcakes, cakes and tortes. Watch Bob, Marjolein's congenial and always courteous sidekick, make all the delicious breads (in gluten-free, too!) by hand...no machines! Try a lite lunch of home-made soups, quiches, salads and toasted sandwiches...all delicious and delight for the eye!
