After a walk around the town and being uninspired by the usual generic French brasseries came across this gem in the evening. Looks like a quaint tearoom but serves up a very interesting, and delicious a la carte menu. Food is tasty and home cooked....More

Nice home cooking. Lacks some flair, but good comfort food. Pretty interior and good service. Atmosphere nice. Solo waitress but spoke English and very competent and attentive.

Had lunch here today. Weather was very hot, but restaurant cool and comfortable. Excellent service from young waitress who spoke English to compensate for our poor French! Lovely meal, would return and recommend.

Sorry to bore the staff, but really one is supposed to be running a restaurant. After ordering, food came quickly enough. Nothing like warm sparkling water too. Lunch was so so. Hopefully one can do better in Laon.

Well located in the centre of town and a pleasant ambiance. The food was very good but the service lack-luster and disinterested, actually downright rude. Also the "Formule" menu was mis-represented. It stated 16 euros for an entree and main or a main and a...More
