In contrast with some of the people reviewing this place, I received very good service: friendly and attentive. Perhaps it helped that I used my French, flawed though it is? The coffee is very good, the view also.

That's the only thing that's great about this place. Obviously they just depend on the location and not repeat custom. Couldn't eat the meal; did they care? No they did not! Full price still charged with no apology.

Perfect for breakfast (especially the deal!) a drink during the day and there are a selection of platters to stave off hunger. We had the cold plate and it was excellent vale and very tasty! The waiters were most helpful with the win (surprisingly this was not so cheap). Excellent location looking out on Capitole, with outdoor seating should it... More

Overlooking Capitole, this Art Deco café/bar is great for everything except a posh dinner. The petite dejuner deal is particularly good, though you might think of sharing it unless you are staving! The coffee, croissants and hot chocolate were excellent. For a red wine the Poc St Loup is tasty, it goes well with the cold meat platter. Very friendly... More

Tourist trap alert. The only nice thing about this place is the view of the square. Crap food, crap wine, crap coffee, rude staff, and the pleasure of paying a hefty bill at the end of all of that. Don't waste a meal here when there are many delightful restaurants in Toulouse.

Paid €7.70 for glass of water and small coffee to a rude waiter who disappeared with our €10 euro note and failed to return with our change. Watching him work this appears to be normal to be served with such indifference and for the to steal the change as tip. So my tip is avoid avoid avoid !

Cafe Albert is in the center of Capitole de Toulouse, very nice location really. The decoration is old but smart. The quality of the food and it's taste is wonderfull. The waiters are so kind, everytime ready to help you. I like this cafe and i'm sure you will like it if you visit.

Service was frosty at best. We didn't feel like staying for lunch because it seemed like we were annoying the staff so we had some drinks and moved on.

Thank wonderappetite
