Likewise, the wines are predominately French; many made by lesser known producers, and provide the perfect accompaniment to the food on offer.<br>No hassle, no rush, no skinny- decaff-double-shot-to-go, just a vibrant atmosphere that moves with your moods throughout the day.

I'm a fan, definitely. I've had several good meals at a few of these and never been disappointed.
The chain is good value for money in my book...where else can you get a kir royale for under £4?! The croque monsieur is also tasty and comes with fries and a green salad for like £7 or something. Not too bad, eh?
