Quaint Little Cafe In The Heart of Park Avenue

We were in the mood for French cuisine and realized it is hard to find a place that is not doing just pastries or crepes or sandwiches. This place definitely hit the spot and is not bad on price considering the location & the level of quality. Because of the heat, I decided to just have... read more

Trendy restaurants are common in Winter Park, but Cafe de France is a steadfast staple of Park Avenue. It has a relaxed atmosphere and there are many locals who are regulars. You can tell because they great each other as well as the staff. We were there for a family celebration and were not disappointed. I had the coq au... More

Food was very good--we had the duck comfit and the trout--very enjoyable. A little pricey, but worth it. Service was attentive and pleasant and the atmosphere, with pictures of Paris restaurants here and there that helped to make you feel like you were there.

A charming French restaurant with a spacious interior or a few sidewalk tables for fine weather and people watching. The food is wonderful, with particularly well-done soups, usually pureed and intensely flavored by their fresh seasonal ingredients. We always enjoy their daily specials and love some of their old standards such as the ham and cheese crepes or seafood crepes.... More

Cafe de France is an inviting cafe on Park Ave which is one of Winter Park's best restaurants. We had the pear salad and scallop entree which were both delicious and the profiteroles were a perfect ending to a relaxing late lunch. The service and the atmosphere lends itself for a great meal.

The night we were at the Cafe de France, it was freezing cold in Winter Park and there were only two other couples seated. We thought the decor was evocative of France, and our waiter was charming and knowledgeable. We had the escargots and the foie gras (yummy!) and then the scallops and osso bucco, both very good. The bread... More

Simple clean build out with authentic French cuisine, reminded us of a small locally owned northern French restaurant. The lunch special crepe with pork belly and a reduction sauce was more than a crepe, it was a meal. I could tell because my dear wife is not usually that generous in sharing. My spinach egg crepe was very good. The... More

I work in a fine dining restaurant in orlando, so it is safe to say i had high expectations especially for a valentines dinner for two. We had a reservation and when we walked in, were not greeted for about five minutes. When we were seated, we waited 20 minutes with no greeting, or water while other tables who were... More

We are sincerely sorry for what happened! It was a very busy night, and obviously there was a lack of coordination among the staff! After 30 years, you would think that we would have it down perfect, but it is obvious that there are still issues that arise and need to be dealt with on a regular basis! We are... More

I wandered into this little gem in Winter Park because it looked so cozy. Service was outstanding. The menu was full of very special sounding dishes but I was drawn to the French onion soup. Outstanding! So good I drove back from Orlando the next night to have it again. The atmosphere is wonderful, dim and candle-lit, French music, just... More

We finally tried this restaraunt and were so pleased. The atmosphere, especially outside, is perfect - outside or within reminds you of a Parisian cafe. Service was excellent and the menu good. My wife had a grilled cheese sandwich - perfectly prepared and very interesting. I had Coq Au Vin (chicken with vegitables) - excellent. The bread was fresh and... More
