I tried Flunch at the Auchan hypermarket. It's a nice enough place for a cheap lunch. The Flunch model is a good idea. Pay for a ready-cooked main course and get unlimited servings from the self-service vegetables/salad bar including pasta and couscous. It doesn't claim to be fine dining but the choice was better than the equivalent kind of place in the UK - better quality, flavour and variety. Friendly staff. All seemed very clean.

We wanted to stop for a quick meal on our shopping day trip to Calais. Flunch offered a wide choice of main courses, and plenty of starters, salads, cheese platters & desserts to choose from. We shared a starter, a large can of lager & dessert, and had a main course each, costing about 20 euros. The nice thing about Flunch is you can enjoy your starter & then collect your main course from the serving counter, so you get it while it's hot (there is a microwave if you need it), and then you can pile your plate up with vegetables from a seperate counter. This counter is regularly replenished with things like chips, rice, saute potatoes, green beans, sprouts, courgettes in a lovely white sauce and carrots. If you love ice cream, don't choose a dessert at the beginning, but get one of the many choices available after your meal (we usually forget!). If you want coffee, remember to get a token (jeton) when you pay for your meal.

If this is French fast food, it beats MacDonalds, but that is all I can think of that is good, except that it is quite cheap. It was overrun with children, and the food was cafeteria style basic. The process of choosing and acquiring the food was a bit complex. I had some obscure 'volaille' (poultry) dish, which was okay, I suppose, but the whole ambience or lack of it put me off!

Great place to eat lunch mid shopping trip. Excellent quality and good choice, great to be able to select your own veg accompanyments. Great coffee from the machine too, and all very reasonably priced. Always a good place to eat.

We have used this cafe on numerous occasions and it is always good, the “English Breakfast” is very good particularly after a long trip eating baguettes and croissants every day. On this occasion we had done a fair amount of wine tasting and were ready for a meal. Two of the party had Beef Bourguignon and when we saw we all wished we had chosen it, large pieces of beef in a thick rich sauce, excellent, the other meals were also good. All well prepared and piping hot, good service and reasonable price considering its location in the Cite Europe.
