Unexpected find!

We had a lovely dinner here after arriving in Sacramento at dinner time. The atmosphere (small strip mall) is simple but the fare was delicious. We had the shrimp salad and ham and brie sandwich along with an order of pate and wine. Everything was delicious and the service was very good. We enjoyed... read more

The sandwiches here are really wonderful, have so much brie on them that I don't see how the restaurant is making a profit, and come with a very delicious salad. We got four different sandwiches, and everyone was completely delighted; they were also cut into enough pieces that everyone got to try all four, and still have a few pieces... More

French decor and French chef in this tiny cafe with irregular hours. Come to enjoy high quality French wine by the glass with delicious hot French bread sandwiches or bistro entrees. The shrimp and the homemade pate are superb. I also like to get the croque monsieur with brie.

Great chef who showed warmth to the customers and cooked up delicious food for us to enjoy at a reasonable price!!! What more could one ask for?!! I wish I lived in the area so I could eat here once a week. I had the duck mousse pate (good but I long for foie gras). The blackberry creme brulee which... More

Because I want it all to myself. Having lived in France, and traveled there many times, this place is a little slice of French heaven in Sacramento. I've taken so many people there, and all were very impressed from bite one. "What's good here?" they always ask. Close your eyes and point. Everything on the menu is exceptional. Yes, I... More

My daughter have a date night every couple of weeks and she had been bugging me to go here. I have to say, the food was amazing. She had the Hot Salmon with Brie and I had the Hot Prawn with Brie sandwich. The bread was amazing, I can't say enough about this place. Our waiter was so attentive, the... More

My son told me about a wonderful little French bistro in Sac. so I thought I would try it, much to my surprise it was great. I had the warm lamb and my wife had the shrimp sandwich, what a great little place but that is a problem very, very limited sitting, long lines but great food.

Have eaten here twice in the past three weeks with several friends, every person had something different and ALL were delighted with their food. The entrees are fresh, perfectly prepared, and delicious. The only slight problem is the noise level, but understandable because there are so many people enjoying themselves and their meal!

We happened to be driving by Cafe Rolle one Saturday and decided to drop in for lunch. My husband had always noticed the lines outside the Cafe during weekdays so we thought, no lines ,no wait! We had a great lunch. Both of us had sandwiches, he had salmon while I had ham with Brie on fresh baked French bread.... More
