Sweet and simple

Food is fresh! This is a lovely little spot for breakfast or lunch. We tried crepes and paninis. Everyone agreed it tasted just like the little cafes in France. Macarons are really tasty. Loved the lavender and blood orange. Will try others next time. Rocq is in the most unlikely little strip mall... read more

Fabulous , fabulous , fabulous. In Orange County chain restaurants seem to be the main stay. So wonderful to find a one of a kind owner run restaurant with food that melts in your mouth. Desserts are to die for . Will definitely be back often. Try it you'll more than like it.

I went in to redeem a Groupon with my husband for a dozen macarons. As soon as she heard we had a Groupon, the young woman adopted a snippy attitude like she was tired of Groupon patrons, and told us it was only good for 4 limited flavors. I thought she was trying to impose a made-up restriction that did... More

I read about this little cafe a month or two ago. I was shopping with my mom and suggested trying it out. We shared the ham and Brie Panini and the Mediterranean quiche, DELICIOUS! Can't wait to go back and try everything else on the menu! We bought 10 different macaroons most were good, the rose stood out for me... More

I love this place. It is in a little strip mall, the owners are primarily caterers but opened this little cafe that is open for lunch and breakfast on the weekends. I've been for lunch and breakfast, both are superb. The owners take your orders and come around and check on how the food is, they are very friendly. It... More

My husband and I stopped in for Sunday Brunch and what a nice treat we had. The place is very tiny but has been decorated in a simple elegant country style. You get the feeling you are in a French or Tuscany bistro. The food is wonderful, I had the Vegetarian Quiche which was so tasty and my husband had... More

This is a really nice cafe with great food. There are sandwiches, but I came to pick up quiche and salad to take back to the office for a colleague's birthday lunch. There were two types of quiche the day I visited: Lorraine and Vegetarian. I got both types since they are individual size quiche pies. The vegetarian was hands... More
