Simple, basic ambiance – great coffee.
Candidly, I had gone to the area to try out their neighbor (District 10 – which is often mentioned as one of the best coffee shops in AD). That place was closed so instead of driving back 20 kms, I decided to try this place. Glad I did.

Gorgeous cafe, lovely view of the Louvre but a tad windy when we visited. Nice menu options and staff helpful.

Just saw this on the web and wanted to try out a cafe that serves breakfast meals that is served even at a later day. To see reviews isa one thing but to experience it,is a validation. Ambience is really quiet and relaxing to enjoy their food. Fairly priced. I enjoyed everything on my plate and drinks.

Noud Cafe is located in The Galleria Mall level four. Nice seating area inside the mall and they also have a outdoor seating with the sky view. I ordered a Hot Spanish Latte. Barista made a beautiful latte art. There are books on local culture and specialty coffee that you can read while enjoying your coffee.

Had brunch and their food was amazing. Mocha was perfect balance of sweet from chocolate but also bitter from the espresso! I ordered their Belgian waffles that was huge and had the yummiest fruits on top. It came with maple syrup that balanced the tartness from the fruits!

Quite chic yet casual ambience. We got a nice soft brioche type bread with flavored butter as a complimentary gesture. It was big enough for a meal! Loved their dynamite chicken – SO GOOD! And it came with a nice touch of 3 different dip sauces.

A cute lil cafe. The mango ice cream was fab! Tasted like fresh mango and so creamy and delicious! The raspberry summer drink looked gorgeous and tasted amazing too! The rose coffee, one of their bestsellers, also was quite good.

This cafe has amazingly delicious desserts and cafes, fresh juices and main courses. Decor and ambiance are so cute with lots of details. Felt like I’m in a Victorian era. Staff was very friendly and sweet. Can’t wait to go back. @patricia_oh_
