“C’est dix!”, “Les petites…”, “La fillette de… m’a dit que…” 
Le Moulin à Café sells a range of imported French sweets, condiments and teas; students from the Lycée can spend their pocket money on the same chocolate biscuits they might buy in Paris. 

The cafe, which opened in July 2011, is aesthetically French; there are books of poetry and orange and brown boxes from Hermès to admire on the walls, and even the pastry labels are written in a distinctive French hand.
