This was recommended by the staff at our real river boat tour. It would have been a bit hard to find without the recommendation, but it was not far from our hotel, and the food was amazing. The desserts--fantastic.

We stayed at a hotel opposite Florence's and we were glad we tried her place for breakfast. Also stocked up on marmalade, French cheese and artisan bread for our travels which lasted well.

Amazing food, even better coffee! Perfect service, the girl with red hair has amazing charisma! One thing that could be improved is putting locks on the toilet doors! Otherwise, would totally recommend!

We have no one with red hair who works here and there are locks on the toilet doors - are you sure you have the right place?
