We were looking for something different from seafood for at least one meal and very glad we ended up here. We went for some fairly traditional French breakfast fare, Croque Madame and Quiche Lorraine. We were extremely happy with both. the full and rich flavors...More

Bad weekend lunch...terrible service. Not only was the service horribly inattentive but the usually good food was plated like it came out of a cafeteria. Quiche was a dry thin slice that didn’t appear to be freshly cut (looked warmed over) and was plopped in...More

Very nice meal. I had a drink called the Dahu. Very different and good. Potato/leek soup was made with creme fraiche. Delicious! Salad Lyonnaise was light but filling. Not cheap, but worth the price. We will go back.

Our meal was fantastic and the staff was great. Advise to call ahead to book a table, the only reason we got in was because another party had cancelled at the last minute - talk about good timing!

Popped in for brunch today and went for the French onion soup, ham and cheese crepe and the croque madam. They were all really good portions at reasonable prices, but very rich so quite the challenge. Service was OK- a little slow, but I suppose...More
