Best French Food in Cedar Rapids area

I have never had french food until trying it at Croissant Du Jour, Cedar Rapids. I'd say I just loved it. We went for an early lunch around 11:15. The place was starting to get full and yeah if you are planning to go for lunch don't bother after 2pm. They do need to work on their service though... read more

This coffee shop creates intrigue only because of their great pastries and well done lunch selections. I particularly enjoy the lobster bisque and club sandwich. Their coffee is only so-so and certainly doesn't seem to be any different than what I get at home, and certainly not reminiscent of a french bistro. The two biggest concerns are the brash service...

I often call in an order for this restaurant during my lunch. It is always ready within 5 minutes. It is true French cuisine. I have never been disappointed by there soup, everything is homemade, fresh!

Food was excellent. My only problem with this place is when you show up for lunch with other people they cannot sit down while you place their order. The staff or I believe the owners are rather rude about everyone must order before they sit down. They are sticklers about this as I have had this happen several times. I... More

We stopped here for lunch, based on trip advisor ratings and we were not disappointed. I had a grilled turkey panini and my wife had the grilles vegetarian sandwich. You order when you walk in, then find seating. A waitress brings your food to you. Very much a local hangout for the post 50 crowd, which we comprise.

This is such a gem. The food is delicious, particularly the soups and the pastries. The dining area is quaint and clean. The servers are polite and prompt. The owner is nice in that marvelous French way that is not too nice. For instance, during my last lunch visit, a loud man was going on and on about how he... More

I visit every time I'm in Iowa. The food isn't just delicious, it is moderately price and consistent in quality. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. I strongly recommend checking if they are open in advance- they take a two-week vacation every summer and every winter. The restaurant can get very busy between 11 (when lunch starts) and noon,...

We buy every cheesecake available each time, then we save them for an evening treat! The soups are incredible. I have never had a bad meal. Cedar Rapids best lunch spot!

The breakfast and lunch selections are not vast but impeccable. Every bread and pastry is made on site. The salads and entrees are fantastic. I wish they were open for dinner.
