Wow what an unexpected find! We had a wonderful meal - my husband had the Eggs Benedict and I had the Lump Crap salad. I had the hot chocolate and it was seriously the best cup of hot chocolate I've ever had - really great chocolate flavor, but not too sweet! We will definitely come back. Plus our waitress was...

My wife and up I had dinner there last night. She had been there for lunch and liked it. I am always a skeptic but thus place really was good. Small but intimate French bistro atmosphere. Nice menu selections. I had Coquail St Jaques (sp) with scallops and my wife had salmon. We both loved the meal. Great wedge salad... More

I found this place by searching TripAdvisor. So glad we came. The asparagus with ham and cheese crepe with a cream sauce was so yummy. The huge cup of frothy coffee was strong but tasted like coffee should. I ordered 3 macaroons to go which were the best I ever had!!! Pistachio, lemon and cherry!! Worth the 10 minute wait... More

Not too crazy about this one. I will admit I did enjoy the best chocolate croissant that I've tried outside Europe. But everything else sounded better than it tasted. We went there for breakfast saying ooh la, la, qui,qui. We left saying hold the cheese, pass the water and less salt please. The wait was long but the service that... More

We met a couple at our hotel in the UP the night before our visit to Traverse City and they were from here and told us to try this great little restaurant. Very busy at lunch but accommodated quickly. The service was exceptional, the food so good. What a pleasure it was to dine here!

This local favorite is truly a treasure. The food is delicious, different and well presented. Plan to wait for a seat, as the staff does their best, but it is a small establishment. The food and atmosphere encourage people to linger and enjoy. That is part of the experience. I love a mimosa for Sunday breakfast, a real decadent treat.... More

One of the best breakfast places ever and we've been to a lot of places. The omelette, crepes, beignets and lattes were delicious! The. Only negative was the wait, but in the end it was worth every minute!

We loved this restaurant so much that we went two days in a row! Their in-house smoked salmon was outstanding. Their scrambled eggs were some of the best I've ever tasted! They were light and fluffy and had a buttery flavor to them without being greasy. They make their own hollandaise sauce fresh every hour and it was delicious! Their... More
