Newly opened in 2010, with a zinc-topped bar and traditional small bistrot feel, this is a real find for a lunchtime stop. There is one menu, with a small buffet entrée, choice of two main courses and a cake or tart for dessert, all very much in the home-cooked style, both tasty and filling, even if not particularly regional in style. You can choose to have only a starter or main course and it provides excellent value. The wine selection is displayed on the wall inside with some good local choices - last time I found the Montigny grower Michel Gahier's wines available by the glass. No food is served in the evening. Music and entertainment offered on some Friday and Saturday nights.

Useful information: Menu: €16. Open 07.00-21.00 Monday - Saturday.
