We thoroughly enjoy our brunch. Good food, kind staff. No, it's not a place for you to sit around and sip your coffee for three hours. It's an American style restaurant. Enjoy your food, but let the next person enjoy the space, too. We didn't...More

Founded by a young lady from Milwaukee, this haunt offers a bevy of sweet desserts, wonderfully crafted coffee and actual egg breakfasts (an apparent rarity in Biarritz). Try their egg sandwich which comes a thick cut of sausage, crisp potatoes and perfectly cooked eggs. We...More

The restaurant is conveniently located to all the main amenities in Biarritz, and offers a refreshing selection of summer breakfast food. However, this was dimmed by the exceptionally bad service and rude staff. Problems started whilst making an order and culminated in being forced out...More

It's true that on very high traffic days when we have families standing outside in the rain waiting to come in and eat we don't think it's unreasonable to ask a table that is obviously finished and just sitting playing on their phones to free...More

Was chased away before even finishing my coffee. Staff also rude when we tried to order. Food was really good but overall ambience was hostile and not a nice place to sit down and have a chilled lunch/brunch.More

Friendly staff and really good burgers. Can reccomend the double :) good and central location. The only downside i would say is that it took quite some time to order and also to get the food.

It's true that we use the tables in our restaurant between the hours of 12:00-15:00 for our lunch service. If you just want coffee at 14:00 most of the time we won't be able to offer you a table-if it's not too busy we can...More

We began in 2011 with an American Bakery/Coffee Shop inside the Biarritz food market, which we sold in February 2017. In 2013 we opened a large downtown location at 2 rue de Helder in Biarritz. That is our only location now. We serve a full American breakfast everyday, including Pancakes, Bacon and Eggs, Breakfast sandwiches, Eggs Benedict but also Acai Power Bowls and Bircher Muesli both with fresh fruit and homemade granola. We have excellent 100% Arabica coffee and do all the different types of coffee drinks Breakfast is from 9:00-11:30 daily. Lunch starts at 12 noon and goes until 15:00. We have a large menu of all fresh homemade items. We have classic American food like burgers and pulled pork but also a good amount of choice for the health conscious, Salads, bowl food, including some vegetarian choices as well as our vegan Buddha Bowl. We also offer a large choice of Fresh fruit and vegetable juices made per order. We do a big Brunch from mid Sept through May every Sunday from 10-15. In summer we are open 7/7 from 9-5, the rest of the year 9:00am-6:30pm and then we close on Mondays.
We are also quite well known as an American Bakery because that's how we started out! Cheesecake, Carrot Cake, Banana Breads, Cupcakes, Pies, Lemon shortbread, 8 different kinds of cookies, Brownies, Banoffee, muffins, etc...we have it all! And everything, absolutely everything, both sweet and savoury is all homemade onsite!
