My husband, mother, brother & I popped in for a coffee after arriving in St Malo - big mistake!!! The owner was extremely rude & aggressive. he chucked out a young english couple & their children for having the temerity to ask for a croisant...He then marched over to us & shouted that he was French & that I had to speak french when I innocently requested a napkin..when asked for some milk to go with the tea he practically lost the plot and then (apparently) accidentally flung a pot of boiling water over my husbands groin!! We still did'nt leave (foolishly) so he spent the remainder of the time glaring at us from the bar & gave us a load of abuse as we left!!! We paid 15E for this welcoming experience (3 coffees & a tea) - loads of other lovely cafes in St Malo with owners capable of civility would recommend you patronise them...ps husband did'nt sustain to much damage just the embarassment of walking round St Malo with a wet patch!!!

Only had a lunchtime drink here. It is the most amazing place. I have never seen so many odd things in one place. The pumps fof the beer are dolls legs. It is mainly dolls and puppets everywhere. Hope I am in the right place. I know it as the cafe du coin. Only one other couple were in here. Drinks were on the dear side. The barman wasn't very friendly but I will always pop in here when in St Malo there is so much to look at.

Wild overkill and not that comfortable. Eccentric and sometimes bustling. A long room absolutely filled and coated with bits and lives, posters signs and furniture. Access to the lavatories via what looks to be half a confessional booth, several of the seats at the bar are rope swings with thin plank seats, several PVC less than comfortable bench seats and lots of colourful historical scenes stuck like a patchwork across the ceiling. Not the only place we have been to in St Malo where the rooms are heavily filled with faux or genuine historical or popular cultural trivia. This is not fantastic at Java but better than some and a fair environment for daytime snacking and warm drinks or getting fueled up in the evening.
