Went in this café a Saturday afternoon, it was full but we still had a place to drink a very nice coffee and eat blueberries pancakes. Nice decoration, very kind people and lovely food. NB: better to make a reservation :)

Make reservations from Brunch on Sunday well in advance. Their choices are excellent. Service is also exceptional (they lost our reservation, but made it work anyways). Food is very good. Atmosphere is cozy.

This place is a must go for a brunch or breakfast. All cakes are homemade and very fresh. Don’t miss scones with cream and marmalade! In this place you really feel at home.
