The coffee is great! The Staff is super friendly! The Café is nicely decorated. It is hard to get a table outside in the morning unless you reserve brunch. Very convenient to the downtown and beach. It was great to grab a coffee and brownie to go on the way to the beach in the morning; or a baguette from... More

It doesn't matter if you're a foreigner looking for a break from French faire or a true blue Frenchie, I'm sure everyone can agree this is a lovely little place. We loved it the first time we visited years ago and we still love it today. I'd highly recommend the chicken curry and the superfood detox salad, and their potato... More

Came upon this cafe unexpectedly and really pleased we did. The American owner and her staff are all very pleasant and welcoming. Nothing is ever to much trouble for them. All the food is freshly cooked with quality ingredients and portions are large. If you want a change from French food it offers quite homely alternatives. The macaroni cheese was... More

Best breakfast in Biarritz! The food was really good. Good location. Easy to find and friendly staff. Their salmon bagels are the best.

We visited the cafe on two occasions, for both breakfast and lunch. Food was delicious, service was efficient and the cafe had a very laid back, chill feel to it. Good variety on the breakfast menu and the eggs were very tasty. Got the fish and chips Friday special for lunch, which was also excellent. Very friendly American owner who... More

Loved this cute little coffeeshop in the middle of Biarritz. Great prices, lovely atmosphere and yummy treats. Nice surprise to find out that the owner is from America.

um SO GOOD and SO CUTE! They have a good selection of good espresso (my friend also loved her juice she got everyday). Also the prices are soo cheap (for good quality), especially compared to Paris. The service is awesome and the place is so cute inside and out. All around 5 star!

Perfect place to eat something at lunch. Nice service and fast. Recomendable if you visit Biarritz and it's not necessary to eat at first line of the beach.

Cheesecake, carrotcake, brownies, muffins, banana bread, cookies, lemon shortbread and fresh hot pancakes too! We have a healthy juice bar with fresh fruit and vegetable juices available as well. Everything can be enjoyed at the counter or if you're in a hurry, take it to go! Now open since Oct 2013 our new flagship downtown location at 2 rue de Helder in Biarritz! We are very excited to announce that our new location features not only our fabulous baked goods but also delectable savory items including fresh salad, hot and cold sandwiches, chili, burgers, soup and savory muffins and a much requested Sunday Brunch.
