If there's a coffee house that deserves to be called a trendy establishment, it's the Café Français. Located opposite the Votive Church, the pretty and cozy café serves up an entirely francophile offering. For breakfast, the options range from oven-fresh croissants to warm baguettes filled with Roquefort, apple and nuts. During the day and in the evening, a full range of classics is on the menu for lovers of French cuisine: onion soup, snails, quiche lorraine, coq au vin, crème brûlée and chocolate mousse, to name just a few.
The ambience is also evident: large glass windows afford a view of the Votive Park, and the little tables in the window niches are especially cozy. The waiters are charming and the music also contributes to the French flair. Eye-catchers are the large mirrors and the blackboards on the walls.
