Enjoyed a Kir Royale and the Feuillete St Jacques which is a layered thin pastry filled with shrimp and scallops and some cod fish in a sauce. Very enjoyable and one serving was sufficient to satisfy my hunger! My partner had chicken with prunes, rice...More

The best breakfast I have ever had. They know how to cook eggs perfectly. Service is always good. Try not to go there on weekends if you don’t want to wait in line, it can be a long wait.

Fabulous food and authentic environment. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It was a lovely way to start the day. I met the owner who was fabulous and took a real interest in our family, a really lovely lady.

Had dinner with work colleagues. Didn't know much about it, so we appeared without a reservation. They accommodated us, though in a tiny table, only about 2 feet from the guitarist. Despite all these, these small things, I would gladly return. The food was delicious....More

I have not been there for brunch, but I would expect long lines. I don't know if you can phone for reservations. In my opinion, nearly any wait is worth it.
