Went here with my girlfriend, really loved the fact that they make their own cakes and freshly squeezed juices. Really worth a visit

We go there with my brother every 3-4 weeks, for the brunches. We particularly enjoy the friendly atmosphere and the decoration (the place also serve as a painting "club", wine tasting, and other artistic activities, providing a special atmosphere to the restaurant). Food is nice,...service is fast and welcoming, what else ? There are two different restaurants in Versailles (one rue du Vieux Versailles, the other rue de la paroisse) and I recommend both.More

This is an unassuming cafe with amazing flavor and a fresh, homemade flair. We were walking down the street to the metro and stopped in on a whim - what a great decision! We got a tartine and a smoked salmon salad. Both were so...fresh, light, delicious, and filling. My boyfriend and I decided that this was the best meal we’ve had over our two weeks in Europe. The bread was also uniquely good. The seating on the street is a nice place to sit and chat (under an awning on a quiet street). The owner/waiter was very friendly and explained the French menu to us. She offered us a sample and gave us her recommendations. If you go to the town of Versailles, you must stop here!More

We had a salmon salad and a tartine for lunch while walking through Versailles. All of the ingredients are fresh... I would wager day-of fresh... and interesting. There were several ingredients in both dishes that we had never heard of. Both dishes were absolutely perfect....The tartine’s flavors were so vibrant, I was savoring every bite. Owner speaks English and is very kind.More

While visiting the chateau over two days, I really wanted to have some good food without having to sacrifice too much time and money. This restaurant was the perfect choice. All the food is sourced from the farmers market. It is simple but tasty and...reasonably priced. I had a great lunch of lasagna full of veggies and a delicious carrot orange juice. I was able to sit at the counter and eat in about a half an hour. In the back of the restaurant is an area for painting classes which makes it a really unique spot. Don't miss the cakes which are a specialty or at least take a piece to go for some afternoon energy.More

I stopped at this restaurant as I was walking from the train station to the municipal library near the Château. I sat at one of the small tables outside on the sidewalk, which was very pleasant -- the restaurant is very near the library but...off the main streets and so it was not at all noisy. I had a "Burger Guggenheim", which was simply delicious, made with absolutely first-rate ground beef and served with cheese and bacon as well as very good fries. One of the best burgers I've ever had anywhere in many decades of sampling burgers all over the world! On the strength of this experience, I would very happily return here and try other things on the menu. NB: the restaurant is open only at lunch time according to a sign posted outside.More

The restaurant has a great location on a quiet corner near Rue de Satory. It is clearly very popular with locals on Sunday mornings. My friend and I had fantastic sweet and savory brunch which included unlimited pancakes! I highly recommend it!

We went to Versailles in order to visit the "chateau" with our children and we came by this restaurant. We were seeking for a typical and cosy place to eat. At the beginning we were attracted by the atmosphere so "frenchie" with a real taste...in decorating. The association between the workshop and the restaurant is well thought out. The food was amazing !!! the chef is really talented and turn simple ingredients into great meals ! The manageress is very nice !!! Well, this is place we hardly recommend if, like us, you love great food and happy moments with your family. Enjoy it !More
