I have to say this review is based on a single visit, where the only thing I tried was the "Brioche Crunch" (or something that mentioned crunch and brioche). Unfortunately it was just horrible. It was so DRY, had none of the rich butteriness of the average brioche. It was like eating a stale hamburger bun with some bland crumble... More

Great little French bakery. Good value for money and do good coffee. If you want a simple great value breakfast or lunch pop in. While I haven't tried the sweet section they appear amazing with tarts and all sorts of great cakes.

La Tropezienne or the French Café as it's known locally is still a great place for fresh food and coffee, and for meeting friends, especially on cold winter days. They also have free internet and great staff.

We had breakfast at this cafe, attracted by the French styling. This is a nice place, in a road with a number of stylish outlets so it was hard to find any major differentiation. We succumbed buying some bread from them as well.

4 of us arrived 1.30pm on a Sunday - only a few items in cabinet and what was there wasn't appetising looked as thought it had been there since yesterday! Asked if there was anything else and the reply was only what's in the cabinet - the lady server was not friendly and we got the feeling she would rather... More

I have not encountered better croissants outside of France. Get them fresh and crisp on a weekend morning, before the crowds arrive, and eat them with your fingers, peeling the flakes off and letting them dissolve in your mouth. Always busy, very popular with locals, and if at times the standards slip a little, well nobody is perfect all the... More

Stunning food always a great breakfast spot. If it is a traditional croissant you are after or a custard tart you are in the right place. Even just to catch up over coffee you can not go wrong here. You will also meet the amazing staff who can help you order that special surprise birthday party treat or cater for... More

Was a regular visitor to this cafe but my last two visits left my and my friends feeling disappointed at sliding standards. The coffee and cakes are still excellent but on our last two visits we had to ask for tables to be cleared and cleaned despite staff standing around doing nothing at the time of our visit. We agreed... More
