I was on my way to a different place for breakfast, came across this cafe, and decided to go here instead. I'm glad I did! Their croissants are exactly as a croissant should be. Their lox is good too. It's a great place to sit...More

Very good coffee. I had salad platter and a chees and ham sandwich. Taste was good. Dressing mid range. No highlights for me sofar. Good location, close to river walk and downtown.

Disappointing. I thought that a French cafe would be delicious; I got a six inch long sandwich with four Carl Buddig style slices of "roast beef".

Were looking for some place new for lunch and happened upon this little café. Food was tasty,service was attentive. Somewhat different as no "sides" were offered with the sandwiches,but the sandwiches were well prepared and very tasty.

My husband and I ate there for lunch. We were both very disappointed in the soups. My husband had the lentil soup. It was rich and creamy but not very tasty. I ordered the onion soup and it came "deconstructed." The cheese and bread toasts...More

Hello there, Sorry that you had a bad experience at the restaurant. You are right, we do the French onion soup differently. We do not use wine but champagne, and we only use a light beef base. The purpose is to make the soup healthier...More

This restaurant recently changed hands from a very nice French fellow that ran it for years. We were happy that much of the core menu remained but with a few new items added, just enough to signal that a subtle, but positive change had occurred....More
