We went to go there earlier this week and it was closed and all the furnishings were gone. Too bad, we always enjoyed our meals there.

If you as fond of French cooking as I am, this is the place! Owned by mother and daughter, it's a very intimate atmosphere. Shrimp, scallops, duck, anything you want. Even eggs benedict on the week-ends for breakfast. Probably the best meals we have ever had.....

Don't go out of your way to eat here. We live in the area and will probably not return. Called ahead to ask for reservations for two last night (Sat.) We were told 7:30 would be "perfect". We showed up on time and there were only two other tables occupied, with four diners each. Mama is the cook and daughter... More

Had breakfast there twice, but a while ago. Very inconsistent. Today was my second time for lunch. I ordered the ham and swiss cheese on a croissant served warm. For almost NINE dollars, I expected more than ONE piece of ham and a VERY thin slice of cheese on the croissant. Served with a puny side salad, like 4 bites'... More

Stopped in for a latte and picked up some of the quiche to take home. You can dine in or carry out. The coffees and food are excellent. Small place with a few tables but the food is excellent. Little pricey but nice.

Very nice surprise. Interesting and good food. Lunch there and you will feel very special and like you treated yourself. It is in a strip mall and one might be inclined to walk by but don't. Skip the trinkets for sale and spend your money on the food --quality is worth it.

I was hear in 2012 and again this year. The owner is very sweet. the first visit was for dinner with friends. I had the Rack of Lamb and it was great. I went for breakfast and had the Crepe with ham. It was very nicely presented and delicious. (just a tad to salty) I will go back and try... More

This is a beautifully decorated store front restaurant in a ho-hum shopping area. They serve three meals daily: breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have always had a wonderful breakfast but are promising ourselves to return for dinner. The food is served elegantly and we always enjoy our visit here, Tres bien.

Decor/ambiance: hideous. Ikea shelves filled with overpriced plastic crap, a big bamboo tree lit up with plastic toucans on it, oil paintings in one corner and posters and mirrors in the others, instruments hanging on the wall, and a random meat slicer with a big "no touching" sign on it. Not to mention the huge tacky light up Eiffel towers.... More

My wife and I stopped here after church for breakfast. If you want a nice, quiet breakfast with attention to detail, then this is the place for you. Why go to First Watch, stand in line and put up with the noise when you can go right here on the Cape for a touch of class. Oh, and I told... More
