Busy cafe in a good location. Staff were attentive but not overly friendly. Food was average - had soup and a cheese and ham toasty - suggest the double for an adult. Overall good experience.

We visited this Cafe au Lait after a recommendation from our bed & breakfast owner. It was busy, but the staff works very efficiently and tables were cleaned quickly. We both ordered waffles and both were delicious! It was definitely worth it!

Not a great menu, but food was cooked quite well. The waiter was miserable - everything we asked for felt like a chore! Lunch with drinks was only €25 per couple though!
