This unassuming cafe is a gem. We had amazing, tasty salads and excellent cake later on in the day. The service was also relaxed but impeccable. I would thoroughly recommend a trip here.

We had lunch on the terrace and enjoyed the French touch and friendly service. Food is good; location excellent and the terrace - with only a couple of tables - very nice. A treat for the lovers of France and French food, of romantic places and of good quality. Not expensive at all.

We were here almost every afternoon for a slice of cake and coffee. Their carrot cake and cheese cake - oh my soul! ❤️ The coffee and pastries are fresh and delicious. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. We will be back 😊

I believe it is outstanding for coffee, cakes,lunches etc. we booked for an evening meal close to where we were staying. We ordered our starter husband opting for seafood salad.we expected it...

Came across this delightful venue in Cape Town's De Waterkant. Beautifully and cleverly decorated, wonderful friendly staff, music not too loud, excellent chicken pie and cheesecake. I felt I was back in the old town of Nice. Will definitely have to return for a dinner.
