LA CIGALE CAFE open 7 days

Our café has just launched our new 2018 a la carte menu – seasonal, fresh & beautiful. We have some delicious new dishes as well as the comeback of some old favourites, like ribbon sandwiches and baby quiches. The classic Croque Monsiuer and Croque Madame have had an update and we’ve created some yummy twists on the traditional Tartine (open French sandwich). Our chefs are also filling the café cabinet daily with a mouth-watering selection of salads, for eating in and taking away. Open every day.

La Cigale Evening Bistro

Due to the growing popularity as a venue for functions we have decided not to continue our Wednesday Night Bistro and to focus on our growing function business and continue to host other events such as our regular Food Truck Nights and annual celebrations such as Bastille Day, Beaujolais Nouveau and other special pop up evenings.

As a function venue we provide excellent food and hospitality at great value for money and are very flexible when it comes to meeting our guests particular needs.  Please see Functions
