We had an excellent meal here at this cosy restaurant. The menu was creative and everything we had was delicious! Service was very good. This is a must stop if you are visiting Besancon. But do reserve, the restaurant is quite small and it was very busy.

Very good and friendly service. We had some excellent local wine Pinot Noir Domaine Guillaume, vieilles vigne for 26euro the bottle. The food was very good and the desserts fresh and delicious. It's a small place, like an old bistrot. The decoration is tacky but kinda nice. Would definitely recommend it.

My husband and I stopped in Besancon for one night on our way to the Alps. We wanted a special meal but nothing too fussy. Something tasty that wasn't just fondue or raclette. We found Le Cafe Cafe on trip advisor and based on its reviews decided to try out luck at getting a table- boy did we strike gold.... More

This is a small, very friendly restaurant with excellent service, fresh food prepared very well, and a great ambience. We squeezed in without a reservation, but I would recommend reserving since there are few tables. There are also outdoor tables for good weather. We ended up sharing some wine with a table of local residents next to us and had... More

The meal we had here was very reasonably priced and service excellent. This is clearly a place run by a few young people who really want to deliver for their clientele.

After reading a few reviews we went for it; on a Tuesday night at 8.30 we thought yeah no problem. Whoops! It was full, but we were asked to come back in one hour and sure enough a table was waiting. The service was great and the (only) person serving was happy to let us choose our red wine from... More

We arrived early. It was quite initially but a buzz developed as the evening wore on. The service was convivial and frequent. Questions were asked and suggestions made and followed. The truit (trout) was good as was the local chardonnay (fresh fruit but not sweet). The fromage was excellent including the comte and a fresh soft cheese. Perfectly matched with... More

It's not uncommon for good restaurants to have a rather limited menu, especially for the the daily offer. Gladly, it's not the case on Cafe Cafe. They have plenty of options to choose from. We went with the daily offer of beef and 'noix de Saint-Jacques' and we were not disappointed. Very good quality at fair price. The atmosphere is... More

This is very small and completely packed, mainly locals. This is cheek by jowl dining but they're all friendly as can be. None friendlier than the one one very hard working, non-stop, smile-y waiter (he needs an assistant!) The food is excellent. And the wine. And the prices are below reasonable. Make a reservation or you'll not set a foot... More
