Good fun place to sit and watch the people and enjoy a nice meal.

very small, but seating is mostly outside which is great to people watch. It has a smaller menu, but everything is good. Most of the time there is live music outside and it is just a great place to be with family or friends.

Food excellent, try the sampler with several French delicacies and a bottle of wonderful wine. Service is very good and personable. Fall afternoon with talented musician singing, oak trees with a breeze, and the one you love. Have tried many of their dishes over the past two years and have always enjoyed and will continue to go there for a... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Cecile's French Corner on their wonderful outside dinning terrace. Food was great, decent service & prices! Fabulous live acoustic musician was a nice treat on a Sunday afternoon.

This is a great place for café food. The acoustic music was wonderful. Order the crepes or any sandwich on the wonderful French bread.

This place was simply AWFUL. Our waiter, whose name appeared as Bruce on our bill, never introduced himself, plopped two menus on the table, then proceeded to kneel down between our chairs without speaking. We were creeped out by this and finally asked him if the was trying to level our table--got no response but he stood up and said... More

If you are looking for a small, casual, outdoor setting, then this the place. It is off the main street filled with shops and you can almost miss the restaurant. It is located near the water and boat rental. The onion soup for my lunch was superb filled with onions, cheese, and flavorful broth. My husband one of the crepes... More

We took a drive to Mount Dora a few weeks ago and found this gem of a cafe totally by accident. We sat outdoors on their lovely patio and thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was good. I wish I knew the name of our waitress, because she was so attentive and friendly. We would definitely dine here... More

My friends and I were drawn to this lovely little place near the lake with the option of indoor seating (cramped) or patio seating (lovely, shaded). While our lunch was just so so the service was awful. Our waiter was inattentive beyond belief. While other items on the menu may have been better than our choices, I would not be... More

I belong to The Plant Propagation Guild of The Garden Club at Palm Coast. After a workshop in Sandford, we took lunch in Mount Dora at Cecile's. What a heavenly surprise! The food was gourmet. For such delectable treats such as lobster bisque and escargots, the cost was very reasonable. All 17 of us enjoyed the fine food and service.... More
