Interesting dishes and quality food. Open for breakfast and lunch. Blackboard menu and wide variety of really lovely house made cakes and pastries. Can accommodate groups. City prices but city standard to. Very friendly service. Just short stroll from the station.

I went here for some lunch and was surprised to have a few veggie options. I opted for the crepe gratain and it was fantastic. Really nice food, good staff. I would recommend it if you are in the area.
