This is a small local cafe with the owner and server from France. She recommended the quiches. I have to say I was beyond surprised with how delicious they were. I had the French onion and my husband the ham one. I highly recommend. The coffee was great and the almond shortbread cookies we bought to go were excellent.

Best coffee ever. Lovely service. And the fresh made french pastries are incredible. Has the feel of a french cafe in Paris. No rush, take your time to enjoy.

Real French prepared coffee, quiches, sandwiches and pastries. Plus chocolates. A real cafe in a town full of chains.

Took my wife out for Sunday brunch. I noticed previous reviews were at both extremes, so wanted to make up our own minds. She had the Tomato with Goat Cheese soup and the Salmon Quiche, I had the Zucchini soup and the Ham and Olive Quiche. The flavor in both soups were excellent, strong tomato flavor with just a hint...

I can't tell you how much j'adore this place! I came for a baby shower and then forgot about it for a couple years. I brought my boyfriend here on a day when he was in the mood to go somewhere else. Looking at the menu, we couldn't decide on one things so we got a variety including salad, crepes,... More

Great place to go to have breakfast. Meet up with friends for a great cup of coffee and a relaxed time either in the cafe or their outdoor seating area.

A French couple owns this place and carries on the traditions of the previous French owners. It is a delightful, relaxing oasis on a rather nondescript stretch of Thousand Oaks Blvd, but don't let that deter you. The atmosphere is very pleasant, and the limited seating, which is otherwise unfortunate, keeps the feeling very cozy and low key. I would... More

Judge not this cafe by its ordinary storefront cover, but by the quality of the food and service inside, which were outstanding. The soup was homemade and delicious, the salads very fresh and served in a delightful, appetizing presentation, and the baked goods for dessert delectable. Loved it, wish it was closer to home but I do intend to return.

This little French Bistro is quaint and the food is freshly prepared and authentic French. The service is very European (meaning slower), but, they don't hurry you out of the restaurant either. I go here with my girlfriends every so often and will occasionally pick up some French pastries or desserts. Their dine in menu is great! You must come... More

Food selection is very limited. Quiche was tasteless, crepe and croissant just OK. Coffee was the best part. The owner is very rude. When we walked in she was talking to other customers for a long time without even acknowledging our presence. When she finally turned her attention to us (as we were now her only remaining customers), she was... More
