A true signature of the LUX* group, the Café LUX* offers a wide variety of roasted coffees. More than a drink, coffee is an art, with a delicious milk froth in which a heart is sometimes drawn, sometimes a palm blossom.
At tea time, the whole family will find happiness in the little shed. Delicious ice cream, fresh juices, detox juices and smoothies are on the menu for a gourmet or healthy snack. An essential passage that will delight children.
