This sort of sweets... yummmmm (miammmm), cold, creamy, and crunchy at the same time, perfect harmony of tastes, not too sweet, fresh and melting on your tongue... Nice amibiente, lovely people... Le Recommande - I can only RECOMMENDE!

Friendly service and some the best cakes we have had in France! Even took a couple back to our hotel with a pretty good take-away coffee as well. Morning breakfast also very good - real freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh bread and pan u raison.

This lovely salon de thé, a converted post office still reflecting its origins, has a beautiful selection of artisanal patisseries and I also enjoy their wide selection of teas on the menu. A nice place to pop into for a calming refresher!

I can't say anything bad about this establishment. There is a choice of coffee and tea and I have tried several and they are devious. But the patisserie is just so good that when you take the first mouthful all you can do is make delighted noises. If you do nothing else in Val Andre you must visit this establishment.... More

I found this place quite overpriced for what they were offering. The cakes looked very much as an industrial fabrication rather than cozy home-made gateaux. I also cannot say that the atmosphere or the decorations were any special or cozy. Based on the read reviews here in TA, I expected something much better and was truly disappointed.

This is a must - the cakes are out of this world! The lunch menu is quite limited - they basically only serve quiche but again, it is absolutely fantastic. Although the brunch menu is one to try - great if you've got kids as there's lots of bits and pieces. The drinks menu has a wide variety of tea... More

This is an amazing little shop, and we enjoyed having different pastries and delicious ice cream there with our daughters. It is definitely child friendly and it also serves an amazing variety of coffee and tea. We recommend this place highly.
