This cafe is a somewhat odd combination of tabac, bar and coffee shop but makes for a fantastic lunchtime experience in a beautiful setting. The cafe has a spectacular hidden garden complete with a shaded patio, a grape vine, a frog-filled aquarium and a water feature. The outside terrace is also decorated with kitschy garden ornaments and fairy lights to light up the garden in the evening. Stop here for a break from the buzz of the town.
