Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

CheZaline offers a happy lunchtime alternative to microwaved leftovers or a sandwich from your local boulangerie – le sandwich de luxe. If you think you’ve got the wrong address on arrival, that’s normal. The patronne has changed almost nothing of the décor from the place’s former incarnation as a horse butcher, which gives a certain raw charm to what is now a quality deli. There’s not much space inside – just four places and bar for the lucky ones who can grab a seat – but there’s a welcoming retro atmosphere with the scales still in place and old-fashioned butcher's slabs on the walls.

There are plenty of good things on the menu, from a classic ham sandwich ‘Prince de Paris’ to a more original chicken pot-au-feu, or the more exotic tortilla-chorizo. The prices are a little ambitious (€7-€8 for a gourmet sandwich, €4.50 for a more traditional snack), but taken as a whole, with the fresh, high quality ingredients, it’s well worth the visit.
