Behind this name lies a family and also a tradition. Founded in 1912, the specialities of the house are teas and coffees. The most recent generation has brought to it a touch of the "home-made": breads, sweet breads, pralines, jams, soups, quiches, and pastries. The tea room is never empty. Even so everyone always eats in an atmosphere of calm.


Approaching its centenary


The house has had quite a journey before settling down in the Porte de Namur district. But the concept, which is very much a family one, has not changed. The father of the current manager, who is always present in the room will be glad to tell you the story of the Renardy family and of the importing of tea and coffee at the start of the 20th century. Over a hundred different teas are available on the menu, either to drink here or to buy. The absolute must here is the cappuccino. I invite you to succumb to this coffee with its cloud of milk, at the same time thick and dense.


A dream breakfast


Often during the week the evening sessions can be fully booked, so in order to meet your friends and have time to tell them everything about your life, on Saturday mornings there is the option of fresh orange juice, hot chocolate with 53% cocoa and an almond croissant. Or if you prefer bread, try a traditional half-baguette, accompanied by their home-made jams. And lastly, Maison Renardy is also where everyone buys their coffee. The grade of grinding can be specified to suit your type of cafetière.

Open Tuesday to Saturday, 8 am to 7 pm.
