Jusqu'à ce que nous nous réunissons à nouveau, Ian et Isabelle

Ian and Isabelle went on vacation for two weeks, beginning July 4. They were supposed to reopen yesterday, but instead a sign went up - "After 11 years, we are closing" - and the shades came down. I had lunch there on July 3, and now I know it was the last lunch I will ever have at CDJ. It's... read more

It took me some time to try this excellent venue/food. Now I am not sure why. What can I say except ambiance, staff and food were even better than I had hoped. Best French onion soup, clubs, hazlenut coffee. Always feel "special" and happy to be there. These folks love their job, customers and make us feel more than welcome.... More

Nice clean restaurant. I've only been there in the morning and had a pastry. I had a croissant once and a scone once. Both were ok. Unfortunately a bit dry. I always get a diet soda and they are happy to refill it for free. I would like to try lunch there sometime. I do like the atmosphere.

What a pleasant surprise to find authentic French food in Cedar Rapids. I love this place, the food, the decor, the wait staff, the video playing in the front. The quiches are my favorite and who doesn't love a bowl of REAL French Onion Soup. If I didn't know I was in CR while eating here, I would think I... More

This is a great lunch spot; try the cold green bean salad, it's really unique and very good. Raspberry cream cake is light and flavorful. Worth a stop!

Feels like you've stepped off a plane into France. Such a lovely and off-the-beaten path space. Delicious pastries and cakes-- the quiche is always good.

This is a great place to meet friends for breakfast, coffee, or lunch. Everything is homemade and delicious. A real Cedar Rapids treasure.

This is a wonderful tea room to visit. The menu is limited, but everything is fresh and inexpensive. I had the turkey club sandwich plus a half cup of lobster bisque soup. My friend had the turkey club and the french onion soup. The croissants were fresh and the service was attentive. We both got tarts for dessert. There is... More

Super cute little place! When my sister couldn't stop raving about the croissants, we decided to go there for lunch. The seating arrangement is a little weird (order first and seat second), but the system works. Once you order at the counter (club croissant sandwich and cup of lobster bisque), then find an empty and elegantly set table. The croissant... More

What a great little place. I would definately drive across town to go back. The food is all homemade and delicious. The pasteries are amazing and the croissants.....mmmmm.....just like the ones they make in Paris. :) The soup of the day has never disappointed and the atmosphere is delightful. A very enjoyable and relaxing experience. I highly recommend. The only... More
