The Bonaparte café doubles as a little restaurant in its own right, serving a range of light meals, salads and soups from early morning until 10pm. Hidden from the street by a heavy medieval door this cosy, luxurious café is a favourite spot for locals and ex-pats alike.
It shares the same characterful ambience and careful service as the luxury restaurant just behind it, and the food is prepared in the Bonaparte kitchen with the same degree of care, and with similarly well-chosen ingredients.
With its medieval feel, heavy wooden beams, tall rustic windows and ancient-looking door, the café is a great turn on the posh French formula and a delightful spot to enjoy a quick bite, a cup of tea or a glass of wine. Enjoy the delicious spread of home-baked French pastries, from croissants and pains aux raisins to millefeuilles and gorgeous tarts – baked downstairs during the night, using butter and flour imported from abroad to meet the exacting standards of the owners.
Bonaparte also serves as an art gallery, showcasing the work of individual painters whose work can be purchased from the café.
