God bless the French for teaching Indochina how to bake. We had a fantastic lunch. The baguettes were super fresh and crunchy, the fillings were generous and tasty and the prices are good. They come with a lovely fresh salad complete with a great vinegarette.

Visit this usually busy café in the main street about 400 metres from the end of the peninsula. Excellent bakery and menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Dinner tends to be quiet. French/European menu with good salads.
