Intimate French bistro with friendly, welcoming owners and staff. My favorite is French Toast with mixed fruit, although the croque monsieur and egg and cheese sandwich on a croissant are also excellent choices. We never leave without taking one of their delicious croissants or baguettes...More

Very disappointing. I was hungry but could barely eat a few bites. The quality of the food was not good.

Authentic and Delicious with a French attitude. This wonderful spot will take you to France and back. The sandwiches, the pastry, and the wine are all delicious. When in Brooklyn, go there for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It was wonderful

The waiter could barely speak English and had no French, no bread was available, foul-tasting tap water was served in dirty jugs. This used to be a good bistro-type cafe but the owners appear to have deserted it.
