Went to lunch here early October, and weather was nice enough to be able to sit outside on the covered patio. Very comfortable seating for 8 people. Menu has a lot of variety and everything we had was delicious. We ordered quiches, turkey burgers, salads, and crepes - everyone loved what they had and the portions were so large, most... More

I got the La Provencale crepe and it was great. The crepe was cooked very well. The portions are huge and sadly I couldn't even finish it. Service was fast & efficient. I think I would have felt a bit cramped inside the restaurant but sitting out on the patio was relaxing and serene.

Stopped here for brunch. A delightful outside eating area. Very pleasant staff and food delicious. The eggs benedict are French style served on a croissant with a delicious potatoes gratin, avocado and tomato.

It's the Wandering Yank here. Several years ago when we visited Culver City, we stumbled on Bistro Laurent on Sepulveda, a great French place where we had both an excellent breakfast and dinner. So on our recent return we looked it up. No luck - Google Maps said it was permanently closed. Since this place has "Laurent" in the name,... More

This is a delightful French cafe in an unexpected location. Service is excellent and so far the food is exceptional. If you go on the weekend they have a trio playing French music with a wonderful singer. You will feel transported to Paris. Bon appetite.

We have been here many times for breakfast with our adult children. They have a very nice patio for outdoor seating and somewhat cramped indoor seating. The food has always been very good and the wait staff very friendly. We highly recommend it for breakfast - have never had lunch there.

This is an unpretentious small Café featuring French cuisine. It is in a residential area of Culver City, part of Los Angeles County, next to a nice park. They serve breakfast, brunch and lunch only, from 8:00 to 3:00, seven days a week. It is located at 4243 Overland Avenue. Street parking. When weather permits there is live jazz music... More

This is a good place for friends. I was with a group of 5 and surprisingly we were seated right away on a Sunday during brunch time. The restaurant was noisy and the service wasn't the best, but the food was very good. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if you are looking for ambiance or charm but if you are... More

A nice, casual place for a breakfast meeting. The goat cheese and leek quiche was recommended, and I must say, it WAS tasty. It was served with a mixed leaf side salad in a sherry vinaigrette (the dressing was particularly zesty and flavorful; in short, it was awesome!) and also with potatoes au gratin. The potatoes were decadently delicious and... More
