Its a small place but wonderful food. I had an omelet that was cooked very well. The baguettes were warm and soft and for downtown Miami the price was great. Our server was nice and attentive. We chose to sit inside because it was already warm out and we don't like eating on the curb. However, those tables stayed full... More

We tried this place on our last day in Miami, and were blown away. They have several different versions of eggs benedict, many of which I had never seen before. We tried the Parisian with turkey and Brie, and it was delicious. We also had an omelet with smoked salmon and truffle oil that was pretty magnificent. the re are... More

They re-fried our benedicts... :0 How does one react to this? We laughed it off but neither my girlfriend myself nor could believe what just happened... Our French waiter (might be the owner) served us two orders of benedicts, and mine were decent. My girlfriend, on the other hand, likes her eggs well cooked. Place was not packed at all,... More

When we walked up to this cafe', a few minutes before they opened, but when they saw us interested in eating there they seated us! Nice. Our waiter was so attentive but not to the degree he bothered us. We shared here and that was fine with them, no extra charge. The food was very good and we got to... More

We went there for brunch Sunday morning. The food was very good. I had not ever had a french breakfast before. The Parisian Benedict was good. The ricotta pancakes were nice, not too sweet. And the French Bread delicious as well. The tables were small and the plates very large, so our table felt crowded with 3 of us at... More

While looking for a place to have breakfast in downtown Miami, we found this little cafe; the reason I decided to try it was because it had tables outside. We had to wait a few minutes for a table outside but it was worth it. The service was very good, staff is friendly although sometimes they stay inside too long... More

Stumbled upon this little gem whilst walking around Miami. Food was authentic, cooked by a french chef and delicious. The Moules Frites were amazing. The broth was delicious and the salmon salad equally good. The lentil soup was also delicious. The dessert was tasty perhaps not to the standard of the mains but they are bought in not made on...

This restaurant was around the corner from the hotel we stayed. We loved the eggs with ham and potatoes. Eggs were just right!!! The croissants were pretty good and the servers were nice... We went back for more, tried the french toast and also the omelette with cheese and mushrooms and it was pretty good...If we go back to downtown... More

Service is ok since they get slammed by having all their customers at once. So, don't expect to much. Food is average. Not all french food is good
