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.

What a wonderful treasure...don't let the outside appearance next to the hardware store scare you away!! I had a lovely and delicious lunch here while visiting Cedar Rapids recently. After you order at the counter and they will seat you at a table. A server will bring your food out and refill your drinks if needed. I ordered the soup... More

Sometimes it's just nice to have a place to go where your always greeted with a smile and they provide quality food. Simply good food with a French flair. I've never had a less than positive experience and the pastries are heavenly. Don't let the lackluster appearance from the outside fool you. Treat yourself!

We had the opportunity to try this restaurant out for lunch and we had wanted to do so ever since seeing this rated as the #1 restaurant in Cedar Rapids. Perhaps we were expecting too much based on the reviews but we were not as impressed as others. The food was good (we ordered sandwiches) with the bread being the... More

A very unique and wonderful place in Cedar Rapids, IA. I have been there several times for lunch with friends. Daily specials are unique and have a French flair. I had Beef Bourguignon the last time I was there and it was exquisite. Pastries are amazing.

I had lunch today for the first time in several months and the food was wonderful, as usual. The quiche was creamy with a flakey crust and the lobster bisque delicious. Luckily I had called in earlier in the morning to have them set aside the last four eclairs or I wouldn't have been able to bring them home to... More
