A small cosy friendly french style cafe. The food is limited in choice but always freshly cooked. There is always a tasty patisserie to take away!

A small bistro with only about 5 tables accommodating 14-16. Some outside seating. Small menu but all homemade and tasty with a French theme. Lovely pastries.

Stopped in for a quick lunch with a friend. It was bustling but service was prompt and friendly. I had the tart with salad. Really yummy and nicely presented. I ended up giving in to the divine blueberry and coconut cake that was tormenting me from the counter. I am so glad that I did! Everything was clearly freshly made... More
