This cute coffee shop situated in the center of Montpellier, minutes from the Place de la Comédie, is not only a great place to stop for a relaxing cup of coffee but also one of the best places in the city to go for a delicious brunch. It has the feel of an American or Anglo-Saxon coffee shop, rather than a typical French one, but that will just make homesick visitors feel even better. The brunch has a great selection of both sweet and savory food.
