The service is bad and random. What they propose as food is clearly lesser than what is offered by the competitors like Exki and Pain Quotidien. The completely "amateur" waiters/waitresses do not care about de customers and sometimes simply forget what you have ordered. The...More

I am very happy to see that the management of the Cafe acknowledged the necessity of rennovation! New furniture is in place, of the same style as before, but a bit more elegant and of much better quality. Decent variety and quality of coffees and...More

It's a very nice and cozy place, although it's almost always full so it can be hard to get a sitting place there. They have amazing cupcakes that will make your dentist very angry.

A cool place to have a coffee or a light meal. It's also laptop-friendly with power outlets by the windows overlooking the avenue. I like the design of this place, it's full of light and color.

Good morning! Start your day with croissant, nata, coffee and lemonade! Enjoy it while reading the new on the mac tablets for free. Great ambient.

The service is EXTREMELY slow. I know this place for a long time and it has never changed. Forget their brunch... You can easily find better places. Pastries are certainly not home made and they're dry most of the time.

If you are looking for a place to hang out while waiting to get into your hotel room on a Sunday morning, this is the place to go. The crowds don't turn out until 11.00 or so which means the noise level is much reduced...More
