This place blends Vietnamese comfort food with French bakery classics. All of the appetizers are terrific, and the pho and banh mi sandwiches are to die for. The ambience is lovely, both indoors and on the small patio. Great for brunch, lunch and dinner.

We're spoiled on S First, with more restaurants than anyone should have within walking distance. That said, I'll go back to walking by this one. Went for lunch and waited for 40 minutes, the entire time two tables sat empty. When the "unfriendly hostess" -...More
