It caught our eye as we were walking through the area, a small covered patio for eating street side and a few tables inside. We ate outside, which was very pleasant. The service was excellent, friendly efficient waitstaff. The menu... More

Lived the service, food, lattes & atmosphere minus the flies! They were everywhere!! It was so difficult to enjoy our delicious meal while flies were buzzing all around us. I would suggest sitting inside if you can - less flies that way!

We had breakfast here on Sunday and were reminded how much we love it. If you are a breakfast person, this is the place for you! They have an awesome breakfast sandwich. The crème brulee French toast is amazing (though decadent). They do a great omelet and their eggs benedict is awesome. We even love their toast!! Can you tell... More

Went for lunch with a group of friends. Very nice outdoor seating. Great tea and coffee. Food was very good. No reservation so we did have to wait awhile. Looking forward to trying dinner there soon.

Was excited to try this French Cafe. I walked by it so many times on Del Mar. Was a bit disappointed with the food. The French Onion Soup was great, so was my Mimosa drink! Not cheap either. Nice outside seating!

Plan to come here in the evening. The lines for Saturday and Sunday brunch are very long. Even with the cool evening breezes, the out side dining is heated. The Duck, Lamb, Beef, and Short Ribs are all wonderful. And of course, desert.

By wife and I went here for dinner the night before Mother's Day. I love the restaurant ambiance -- very French casual! The wine was very good. The food -- just OK. My wife asked for her steak medium and it came well done. My halibut seemed a bit over cooked. Caesar salads seemed to be missing any dressing at... More

Sunday breakfast is the best. Home-made banana bread is to die for. Food is exceptional as is the service. A bit pricey but well worth it.
