Ate dinner here and had a take out lunch. It is fine dinning and the service is excellent. The french onion soup was flavorful and the quiche was a whole personal sized quiche. For me it was enough for two days.

We ate croque-monsieur and a roast beef sandwich for lunch. The croque-monsieur is fabulous!! For dessert we had crème brûlée and éclair! Wonderful! We'll come back soon for sure!

This bakery is situated near some friends of ours and they introduced us. The bakery options are wonderful, reminding us of the bakeries back in the U.K., and Europe. Wish there was a bakery like this in our area of South Carolina. Our friends raved...More

Love their soup and sandwich options. Tomato basil soup coupled with a croque monsieur is a great combo. They have a new rendition on a croque --- open face french bread and tomato covered in cheese and bacon. It was "lighter" than the traditional croque...More
