  1. Do you carry Quaker Oats (breakfast cereal) or similar brand rolled oats? (I don’t want gound up oats). Cordially,

  2. Thank you very much! Happy to know you liked it and found a little bit of home in our shop.

  3. First visit to your lovely shop and cafe today. Good lunch and most friendly, not to mention the wonderful surprise of cornish pasties and devon clotted cream in the store – as I’m a janner from Plymouth it was like going to heaven !!!!!!!!!!!
    We’ll be back soon and recommend every body to go there

  4. Your shop & café looks great – I’m meeting some English friends in Aix tomorrow so will come to visit! I moved to Hyères in April & although I love my French life, it’s good to “dip your toe” into one’s own culture every now & again…I haven’t found an outlet for that here in Hyères yet, so Aix here I come…! I need some English Christmas supplies too, so looking forward to some nice English cake, a cuppa & a bit of retail therapy…! Bonne courage in your venture… :o )

  5. Dear Danielle,
    Unfortunately, the shop is not wheelchair friendly. There are two relatively high steps in the main door. We have a side door with one 20cm high doorstep, but the second door is not wide enough (75cm or so). It is a protected building and we haven’t started the lengthy process of finding out what can be done to make it more accessible. I am sorry about this!
    Kind regards,

  6. Dear Sarah,
    Yes, we have Robertson’s mincemeat. Next Wednesday, we will be receiving all our Christmas products and there should be some Duerr’s Mincemeat with cranberries.
    Kind regards,
