My wife & I visit KW twice a year and have discovered this charming diner. Food is excellent, dining area is quaint clean, and it's located on Duval St. We've eaten breakfast each time and have been very pleased. Highly recommended!

The waitstaff appears to be French also. The dining room is small and somewhat intimate I had the Seafood Risotto...just incredible! Started out with the Escargot appetizer. Middle of the road reasonable pricing. Would eat there again.

We were looking for somewhere to have breakfast walking back from the southernmost point and saw this restaurant. We were seated immediately and felt welcomed. The food and coffee were delicious without a long wait.
