The Crepe Normandy or cheese & fruit plate, or even a mousse chocolat are just right. Sometimes there is even a glimpse of Lake Dora just down the hill. This is part of the recent renovations of Mount Dora's 4th Avenue area. In fact the huge Main Street CHRISTMAS Tree has been moved to the middle of the pedestrian only... More

The food was excellent and the service was exceptable and very entertaining. We had the fruit and cheese plate and the Normandy quiche. Both were very good and enjoyable. Some here have complained about the service but I think it depends on your attitude. We were on vacation and in no hurry. We were given everything we asked for in... More

Described as authentic French Cafe. Hmmmm the only authentic bit is the name! The food was adequate but certainly not even resembling French except the name. Staff were ok, food was ok, service was ok. That's about it. All ok but nothing to get excited about. We discovered better alternatives afterwards.

We asked a few business owners about restaurants, 3-3 suggested Cecile's, we enjoyed a chicken salad & a nice steak very well cooked. The server was very nice, the live music was nice and the restaurant is located w/I 2 minutes of the lake. The only thing that wasn't up to par was the croissant, given this was a French... More

Arts and Craft fest. People waiting in line for an hour. The lady who waited on us was a wonderful server, her daughter was the one serving beer and wine in the court yard. The crepe my wife had was great, very tasty (took 45 more minutes to get our food) my food way overcooked but they made it good... More

Very good food and a quaint atmosphere. The selection on the menu was much more than expected. All six of us had something different and everyone thought their food was superb.

The food was good but the service was terrible. We had to wait 70 minutes for our food. The owner was in the kitchen cooking so apparently this is not a concern for the owner. Our waitress had an attitude and appeared irritable.

They have a nice little courtyard where we sat and enjoyed a musician playing and I had some mousse that I wouldn't recommend. I felt like it was a nice restaurant concept but the staff needed more training and management. They had a rich chocolate cake that I tried to order but the waitress said "no you don't want that...

Cecile's French Corner is like your own little corner of France. Dogs are welcome; the quiche is excellent; the servers are friendly and professional. A wonderful way to spend a lunch with a friend.
