Nice place to have a coffee and a cake. Check your chair before you sit down. Mine collapsed dumping me in a heap on the floor.

The people here are so nice! Hot chocolate tastes good and pain au chocolats are strangely amazing. Very nice if you want some peace and lots of natural light :)

On a chilly day I was able to warm up with a lovely cup of hot chocolate in this inviting atmosphere. There is a large glass wall allowing exceptional views of the castle. Tasty cakes and biscuits as well.

We spilled into this cafe with hungry teens after the castle tour. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food hearty and delicious. Teens loved the free wifi
