Reviewed 21 July 2017

I visited this restaurant with my family and we all had a beautiful time. Our party of 13 was welcomed with a joyous greeting from the chef that clearly took pride in every bite he served us.

This area is known for their hard apple cider and calvados; a perfect way to start and finish our meal. As I sat down to drink the hard apple cider, I listened to my aunts and uncle converse with the chef and although this was all our first time there, the smiling and laughter felt so warm and familiar. The friendliness and attentiveness of the chef was enough for me to want to come back before even ordering. He let us practice our French and when we failed to understand this authentic French menu, he explained in English, and when we didn't know an ingredient, the chef brought it out to show us and try on it's own.

Our family tried lots of things on the menu from savory crepes to the Normandy hamburger with fries. How had I survived my whole life without this burger? Instead of a bun, this burger was wedged between two crispy potato hash browns and accompanied by a perfectly grilled onion, freshly sliced tomato, and topped with a cheese sauce that I wanted to dip everything in. Good thing it came with crispy fries so I could properly soak up every bit of the sauce. Mmmmmm.

We proceeded to try various flavors of ice cream and sorbets: lemon, lime, passion fruit, melon, and a rice pudding. They all were delightful and hit different parts of the palette, but my favorite was the rice pudding. My description will not give it the justice it deserves. It was reminiscent of the Mexican drink horchata with its hint of cinnamon and rice milk flavor. Sooooo good!

The chef even invited us one at a time to learn how to make crepes in the kitchen. One of my favorite things we did in France!

We went there for lunch. The atmosphere was very nice. Friendly stuff which also spoke English very well. Food is typical french galette and crepes but you could also order burger or steak.
