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

We stopped here for lunch & were not disappointed. The crepes were exceptional, as were the sandwiches. Sitting outside with a nice lake breeze and glass of wine was very relaxing.

Sat outside under an umbrella - did some people watching, enjoyed the entertainment by a singer/guitar player. gentle breezes- got our drinks and just relaxed until our food was ready. Had the cordon-bleu crape - very tasty, friend had a salmon crepe- also very good- enough to take some home as well! Waiter was an older gentleman, that could have... 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
