Fun place to stop for an afternoon

An afternoon treat of prosecco, cabernet and a cheese plate finished off a day of heavy tourist duty. The waitress, Eloise, was great fun—highly personable and friendly. The cheese plate is not for the faint of heart with a selection of four cheese, four breads, and baby pickles—generous portions... read more

We had brunch here. We were seated in a small enclosed area for only a few tables, with exposed brick. It felt very European. The food was amazing and everything tasted so fresh! I had vegetable quiche with salad, my husband had the French Toast, my daughter had the grilled ham and cheese sandwich. My granddaughter had a Belgian waffle... More

Hello, Stayed at a local hotel for two nights and popped in here for brunch both days. Got chatting to our server, a great guy, Ayaz, from New York who was very helpful. The food was lovely and served in good time. A large range of healthy cuisine.

I love the oatmeal and fruit w a cafe au lait, but the croissants, french toast, and chicken choizo omelet are all wonderful. The salads are fresh, and the soups are tasty. For DC, it's not too pricy, particularly since it is almost all very healthy.

We visited this place with our kids, and we really enjoyed it. We ordered the petit dejouner and it was superb. We liked it so much we came back the two following days.

This chain has better food (and higher prices) than some, but it's a nice place for a tourist or business lunch. The food is pretty much the same at all locations, and that is okay. A step up from fast food.

Food with a French touch is OK. But the menu tends to be on the expense side. And the service consistently slow, inefficient and completely impersonal. They simply do not care. Also poorly coordinated. The seating outside is nice but The service even worse.
