A great place to stop by and have a late night drink or dessert. We had a strawberry sundae which was outstanding as it was covered with whipped cream. The champagne by the glass is surprisingly quite good. When you are here you know you...More

Busy cafe but to be expected for a landmark. Especially enjoy the cafe au lait. Very nice evening ambiance as well.
