This place has a great fancy vibe as soon as you walk in. Which is reflective of the price. It seems to be frequented by locals though which adds authenticity. Service was excellent, which is what brought the stars up. There was an issue with...More

This is not your typical tourist 'waffle trap'. The waffles are 'non-greasy' as mentioned by a previous reviewer and I definitely got the impression that it was a place frequented by locals. The staff were quietly attentive and courteous. A wonderful place to sit in...More

Busy cafe in a good location. Staff were attentive but not overly friendly. Food was average - had soup and a cheese and ham toasty - suggest the double for an adult. Overall good experience.

We visited this Cafe au Lait after a recommendation from our bed & breakfast owner. It was busy, but the staff works very efficiently and tables were cleaned quickly. We both ordered waffles and both were delicious! It was definitely worth it!

Not a great menu, but food was cooked quite well. The waiter was miserable - everything we asked for felt like a chore! Lunch with drinks was only €25 per couple though!
