This was one of the few place open for breakfast early on a Sat morning in old town. We had apple and cheese crepes, yogurt/granola, croissant , and excellent coffee. Nice location with either indoor or outdoor seating.

I had a wonderful breakfast here - yogurt with fresh fruit, shrimp omelette, fresh orange juice and coffee. Everything was beautifully prepared and delicious! Service was also excellent. I would have bought some of the pastries or breads but we were leaving later that day.
