From the location to the decor, once you step into this restaurant you would think you were in Paris. The food is unique and delicious. We started with beignets then moved on to quiche and omellettes. All were outstanding.

My second review of this place. While their breakfast has been fantastic , not so with dinner. Three of us ordered steak medium. Two were raw, not rare mind you but raw. Also the steak was not very tender. Service from the kitchen also very slow. I wondered if their chef was on vacation or I'll. Either way, it was... More

My fiancé surprised me with a Dinner at this lovely restaurant. Since I'm in love with the French language he thought it was perfect, and it was!! Loved the environment with the French pastries, music, and everything. The food was delicious! I had the duck, it was great but even better the potatoes that came with it. The best part... More

We ate here for a late dinner and were in love with the appetizers we got: mussels and a red pepper soup. So good. The entrees we ordered (they offer small plate options of some popular dinner options - which is what we ordered) were somewhat lacking. The pork was bland and the salmon, while tasty, was not as exciting... More

Our breakfast here was delicious! The food took some time but everything was worth the wait. Try the crepes! They are well made. My daughter loved the french pancake stuffed with nutella and peanut butter. I snuck a bite and it was fantastic!

Enjoyed brunch here with my husband on Father's Day. Very extensive menu, plus several daily specials, made it difficult to decide. I had salmon eggs benedict and my husband had eggs "Africaine." Both entrees were excellent. We also carefully observed what everyone else was eating around us (it all looked fabulous). I would definitely go back. Making a reservation would... More

My friend and I had lunch here and had a wonderful meal! The service was friendly and attentive, the food (once we finally decided what to order from all of the delicious options) was just great. I had half of the Parisien sandwich (ham, brie, apple, arugula and dijon on a crusty baguette) with some roasted red pepper soup. My... More

I am rating this restaurant as poor not terrible only because the server was the only saving grace. Both my wife and I are experienced diners and do not demand perfection, only quality and commitment to ingredient, preparation and service. We both ordered crepes, for lunch. My wife's crepe should have been warm but was served at room temperature. My... More

This place is small, out of the way, and just lovely. Very good food for a very good price and the patisserie in the next room is dreamy. (Hello, my precious little pain au chocolat!) We've been a few times and have enjoyed it each and every time. Great food, good service.

First visit and was not disappointed! A new favorite in TC. Food was perfectly prepared and delicious. The pastries looked wonderful and will warrant a special trip.
