This was the most delicious pasta I ate in my life, freshly-prepared in front of us. My girlfriend took a salmon crêpe, which she said was very good. Service was good. Live music in bonus, which was quite enjoyable. All the staff seemed nice. Prices...More

We enjoyed the food and loved the ambiance with a great dinner and pianist crooning some excellent Edith Piaf. What a treat!

Quaint cafe in historic district with wonderful French crepes of all varieties. Nice historic building - look around while you're there.
