A small piece of France

We got there and did not know they closed at 5pm. We were warmly welcomed. Ordered a cheese tray which was more than enough for 2 people and escargots in puff pastry. Excellent food. Wine was good and not expensive.

Lovely outdoor arrangement for those who like outdoor patio dining. Inside is quite small. The food is excellent and fairly priced. Sometimes the staff is a bit slow but seldom.

Cecile's French Corner is a wonderful spot to dine al fresco on their tropical, landscaped patio in the heart of downtown Mount Dora. When you want a dining experience distinctly unique from the chain restaurants, downtown Mount Dora is the place. You can find almost any cuisine you want, from German to Cuban, but Cecile's is the best choice for... More

Lovely little bistro type restaurant. Excellent food and service. Really friendly service. Reasonably priced and it seemed everything freshly cooked to order. Worth waiting a few extra minutes for.

The server made some excellent recomondations and the pace was very relaxed. Unfortunately they were out of chocolate mousse but the creme brulee was... 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.

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) to a crossaint (fresh and crispy). It would've... 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
