Went with the husband looking for brunch. He found this spot looking here in Tripadvisor. The place is like an old grandma’s house. Ancient china, old tables, teapot with a sweater. Food was really good, far more than I expected. And good portions as well....More

Tired of the cafes with more attitude and deco than service and food? Philomene is the place for a nice break anytime of the day!

Philomene serves consistently good lunch specials all year-round. The owners are hands-on and the staff are warm and friendly. A great place for both locals and tourists!

A small cafe, placed into an old and graceful corner house. The place is cosy, the plates are really tasty and well presented. The negative points were: -The espresso disappoints -Attendants seams not very patients or in good mood to help.
