What a wonderful place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Never a disappointment. It's always nice to be recognized as a regular customer even though everyone I know has nothing but the best to say

This restaurant is a small operation, but their breakfasts are second to none. I had the eggs benedict and they were an absolute delight. I couple that with a freshly baked chocolate croissant, and I had one of the finest breakfasts in a long time. Anyone can prepare a breakfast, but not everyone can prepare a great breakfast. But that's... More

While traveling I stopped for lunch here with a local friend. I had salade nicoise and my friend enjoyed a cordon bleu sandwich, both nicely prepared and presented. My only regret was I had no room for dessert, which is clearly what the place is known for. It's located in a stand alone building surrounded by the parking lot of... More

We came here for a late breakfast and we were not disappointed. The quiche, served with fruit and a cup of coffee, was more than enough to fill us up; it was superb. We took bread home too and, once again, we"re reminded how pleasant the lightness of French bread is. Can't go wrong here - !

Clean restaurant. We came there for lunch. We had few sandwiches that were tasty but nothing special. And for coffee with desert the options were few, the display was almost empty. We bought chocolate cake which was OK but did not have European taste, too sweet and too spongy. The other desert was terrible, we did not even understood what... More

So my wife and I stopped by to check if they had gluten free options, and they did:) We ordered the Chocolate Obsession, which is an excellent French chocolate mousse desert, and we enjoyed it so much that we came back two more times throughout our trip:) The cashier is very welcoming, and helpful, and you feel like you are...

Popped in for lunch for two during a shopping outing. We both had the chicken citrus salad. Portions were good and the flavours were great. We also had an order of fries which were great. Waitress was very friendly and the food was served very quickly

One busy morning mid week we happened upon this little cafe in the corner of Desert Crossings Shopping area. Thought it was only a bakery & were delighted to find it offered breakfast, lunch & dinner. We both relaxed & enjoyed the yummy breakfast croissant (filled w/ eggs & ham). Very good coffee came frequently via a waiter w/ a... More
