From the moment we walked in the door we were met by the new owner Tim, graciously welcoming us. The room has had many upgrades from the previous owner with table cloths, dimmed lighting and adding another partition to maintain privacy between dinners. Only open 6 weeks, the venue was packed! The wait staff was outstanding and didn't miss a... More

Try the sushi grade Ahi Tuna on a salad or as an entree. All of the food was excellent, the wine was especially good quality, and everything is reasonably priced. You can't go wrong with Cafe Lafayette for lunch or dinner. A classy restaurant with great service and outstanding food.

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.
