Brunch Stop

Stopped by Cecile's for brunch with my girlfriend and a couple of friends. For some reason, we thought it was a small French cafe with smaller portions than usual, so we ordered quite a lot. From a mega cheese and fruit plate (delicious and fresh) to a meat-n-cheese filled crepe (also delicious... read more

My Normandy Crepe was delicious as well as the tomato basil soup on the side. The waiter was quick to take my order and refill my lemonade. In fact he also gave me a to go cup full for my hot day remaining. Very thoughtful indeed. I especially enjoyed the shaded patio and the friendly smiles directed toward my pup,... More

The French onion soup was recommended and was phenomenal. Sat outside on a gorgeous sunny day. The staff was very friendly.

Lovely outside area that is comfortable and inviting. The French Onion soup was definitely homemade and very, very good. Salad was excellent but a bit pricey. It was the service that really brought this rating down. We waited more than 30 minutes and finally my husband went to get a server. Another long wait for our food. A casual lunch... More

We sat at least 15 minutes before a waiter came to our table. He appeared to look bored with a very flat affect. We ordered a bottle of wine and their sampler platter and 2 of us had french onion soup. We waited another 30 minutes for our food. I should mention they were not terribly busy. When our dish...

No whipped cream that day! Apparently no one was able to drive to the nearest store for some! The fresh crepes had to be cut with a knife- maybe they were fresh a few days before we arrived. The other table had to change their order 3 times- why? They were out of all sorts of things! The waitress tried... More

We were headed to another local restaurant but it was standing room only. Having passed by Cecile's on other occasions we decided to give it a try. The entertainment as we approached was also attracting us. We were not disappointed. Ordered a bottle of house wine and the cheese and fruit platter for 2. The wine was good the the... More

It was a rainy day and when we first stepped in I knew I would love it. It is nice and warm and inviting and almost felt like I was in Quebec. Tried the tomato bisque soup, side salad, smoked salmon with chives and cream cheese on a baguette, side salad and chicken sandwich, prosciutto with cheddar cheese and lettuce... More

We were a group of 10 and they had a nice outside table under a nice tree for us. The service was good and reasonably fast. Some of us had salads and others had crepes of different varieties. My Brittany Crepe was large, but very average. The best part of the offering was a generous salad with good dressing. The... More

We had lunch here after having fun in active, thriving Mt. Dora. The baguettes were delicious, the French onion soup was great. The salad and their classic vinegarette dressing was wonderful. We enjoyed this restaurant very much. We eat bistro food and classic, high-end French in Boca Raton, Florida all the time. This place was great. We sat outside and... More
