The best cappuccino I have ever had. This was my first visit. Impressed with the ambiance. Lighting perfect. The cheesecake is delicious. Download the app. You get a free croissant or lemon Madeline 🤗

I come back this restaurant time and time agin for coffee and breakfast with friends or simply by myself. The interior is clean, the decor is rustic French, the staff is polite, the food is dependably good. The pastries are exceptional but a little pricy. I've not had dinner her in several years so I can't speak on the quality... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much here - friendly staff, easy to order up and wonderful food served here. We had a very young child with us - very family friendly and French lessons in the rest rooms!

Bakery is very good and that draws a clientele BUT the cafe is also surprisingly good. Quiche and a salad has long been a favorite of my wife along with trying out a soup. Say room for dessert though

I picked up four (4) trays before I found one that didn't have large pieces of food stuck to it. Yuck! Even then I was careful not to let any of my food touch the tray as the one I finally settled on didn't look like it had been cleaned recently. I really should have left, but I really wanted...

This is my go to place for a nice brunch on a week day or to grab a bite to eat during the week. The food is good, wholesome, and the atmosphere is pleasant to be in. The prices are reasonable for the type of food offered as well.

I dropped in for Sunday lunch and was immediately greeted by a wonderful display of pastries. So hard to choose which one or ones to try when they all looked so delicious. Settled for a couple of fruit tarts and a lemon cake that was so moist - yum. I had a cafe sampler of half quiche, soup, and salad... More

This is a great place for a leisurely lunch, but you can have breakfast and dinner there as well. The thing I like about it is that you can sit there for hours, alone or with friends, and they pretty much leave you alone. The menu is what you might expect from a Panera-like place, but I think this food... More

Visited, yet again, for a brunch with my family... The food, especially the quiches, is fresh, hot and delicious! The staff are very friendly and accommodating. There is lots of good seating, even for a wheelchair-bound patron. There is handicapped parking right in front! Try to get near the fireplace!
