Tiny in size, big on flavor

I had saved this place and my trip advisor account for sometime. We finally got back to Decatur and decide to give this place a shot luckily there was one table for two open when we arrived. I've been to the Alsace region in France and this does not disappoint. Wife had the salmon and I had the... read more

My favorite place in all of Decatur. Food was equal to food I had on my trip to Paris. Wonderful ambiance, service, and food.Salad dressing so good I bought a bottle to take home. Also loved the profiteroles.

It is hard not to believe one has been transported to a tiny real French bistro when entering this charming restaurant. To add to this image, the owner is Juliette Binoche's double. The food, from the specials of the day to the Sunday brunch menu, has always been excellent as has the coffee, something American restaurant coffee seldom is. The... More

This is where I go! This Decatur staple is the real thing, right down to the one, sometimes two, servers that take care of the whole room. The spetchle, I'm not spelling it right but it's the Alsatian pasta, is to die for, but everything is good, including the profiteroles for dessert. Charmingly decorated and authentic.

I ordered a crepe and the server brought me the wrong one, but I wasn't going to say anything because it was delicious. . ground turkey with a red sauce over the top. It was one of their specials. Anyway, the server felt bad and wanted to bring me ice cream and I asked her what the flavors where. She... More

A wonderful little French bistro hidden in Decatur. The food is authentic french and the place reminds me of a number of places I have visited in France.

The first time my wife had the Beef Wellington here, she asked the hostess to have the chef come to the table. I think he thought he was in trouble and about to get a complaint, but she said "This was the best meal i ever had!" We have never been disappointed here. The size of the place is like... More

This is one of my all time favorite restaurants. I've been for lunch and dinner (and always get dessert). The bœuf bourguignon is perfect. The fig and honey salad dressing is amazing (and you can purchase a jar). The French onion soup is also wonderful. I don't think there's a thing on the menu I don't love. The atmosphere is... More

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at the small white tablecloth covered tables in this authentic cafe, that made us feel like were in France! I ordered the salad with goat cheese and house honey and fig dressing and it was delicious.Tender greens, sliced cucumber, grated carrot, and sliced tomato were drizzled with dressing, and four slices of...
