Am informal but pleasant little family run restaurant, they are entirely gluten free. For the menu they consistently have pizzas and hamburgers available, and the french appetizers and main courses may change from time to time.

I started with the potato leek soup. It was full of flavor, and not heavily salted as I often find in the USA. They offered lasagna either bolognese or vegetable, and I tried the vegetable version since I had already eaten plenty of meat at lunch. This was a very tasty lasagna, with rich tomato flavor and just the right seasonings. I opted for cheese on top. What a treat for a lasagna lover who can't eat wheat!

They have wines and cider available, but I chose a GF quinoa beer. Turns out that it listed barley as its first ingredient, but I chose to try it, as it claims to be GF. 12 hours later, I've not noticed any problems.

One thing I like about eating in France is that the servings tend to be reasonably sized. I could comfortably eat dessert, so I chose the chocolate cake, made of sorghum flour. It was petite but rich in flavor; very enjoyable.

What a great find! I hope to go back for another meal before I leave Caen.
