We stop here frequently for breakfast, occasionally for dinner, as it is in our neighborhood. They have a good selection of choices on their menu. The service is excellent.

This little French Café has some wonderful food and wine. They have an Italian Sparkling for only $7.00 that I like to start with. Pair this with the Eggplant Chips and you will be happy! My favorite soup is their Lemon Chicken. This Café reminds me of the places I go to in the Wine Country. The owner is Steve... More

My wife and I went to Cafe Lafayette for a quick lunch and when we walked in we found a very pleasant and cozy "upscale looking" restaurant. We ordered the Calamari Fritti and it came with what tasted like a home made marinara sauce, very good. I ordered the Salmon Panini and my wife had the California Wrap. Both were... More

My husband and I tried this out with a groupon last night and it was wonderful. We will definitely be back. It was very busy, but the staff (of 2) was very friendly and attentive....and the food was out of bounds.

We went there for breakfast and had the Chilaquiles, Lafayette omlette, and the fresh squeezed orange juice (which was not fresh squeezed at the restaurant - the waitress told us that it says fresh squeezed on the container). The dishes were good (above average) and the service was slow like mentioned in other posts. I would consider going there again... More

My friend invited me to join her for breakfast as she had a Groupon. We both enjoyed our meals tremendously. We ordered omelets which were delicious. I like that you can have fresh fruit without an extra charge. I would return with or without a Groupon.

We purchased a Groupon for $40 that gave us 2 soups or salads, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, and 1 bottle of wine. My husband had the salad and I had the lentil soup. Both were delicious! The lentil soup reminded me of home (Germany). For the entrees, we ordered the salmon and the lasagna. Both were excellent! My husband is... More

When I purchased the Groupon offer for four I had forgotten our group had previously visited this restaurant but for breakfast. We had made last minutes plans to get together and when we found all of our go-to breakfast places full, we had defaulted to this little place instead. Having read the TripAdvisor reviews and seen the pictures before we... More
