Great for after hour drinks. Hidden away from mainstream . Super music. Something different in this otherwise buzzing town

Im very impressed and i am very rarely impressed as i have 20 years hospitality experience. The ambience is very inviting. Although the name is french the greek influence makes it more authentic and welcoming. As a traveller from Australia and from a city full of greek people, Greece should be proud.

This cafe-restaurant serves more than decent espressos during the day (rare in Thessaloniki) while it has tasty, affordable food and drinks at night. It's cosy, located in a small alley.

Went here for a few drinks and wasn't disappointed. Staff friendly. Good atmosphere. OK value for money. Happened to be there for their 5th anniversary party and the owner George made a real effort to welcome everyone. Great live music. Do try and visit if you get a chance.
