Great food & service! Angelique was a wonderful server. We had lunch....escargot, Mediterranean tapas, & a Parisian sandwich with ham, Apple, Brie & Dijon on amazing bread! Small but quaint & friendly.

A must stop for the lover of food perfection. Breakfast at it's best whether savory or sweet there is a selection for everyone. So good we ate there two days straight. French roast coffee with special cream, all made in house. Pork and Canadian bacon cured on site. Tastes that are definitely out if this country!

Visited in March 2014 based on reviews written here. Hands down most delish breakfast I have ever had. Ordered the crepes with ham, cheese and bechamel sauce. Husband had salmon omelet which he loved. Perfection on a plate. It was so good we are going back tomorrow! Have been to Traverse City many, many times but this was our first... More

Six of us dined on a Saturday night. Our service was prompt and attentive, the wine steward knowledgable and the food was outstanding. The entree's were generous, imaginative, delicious and reasonably priced. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening. We will return and recommend!

We ate here for breakfast on a Saturday in March of 2013. We loved it so much we returned the next day as well. Both days we talked about how good it tasted well into the evening. I had the omelette ratatouille both days. I was going to try something new but kept thinking how good it was the day... More

Incredible food, delightful atmosphere and wonderful service. I enjoyed the most incredible omelet I have ever had the pleasure of eating. A light as air omelet with Gruyere cheese and ham topped with a remarkable Romesco style Sauce served with a perfectly toasted baguette and fresh fruit. My husband enjoyed a fantastic Farmer's breakfast of scrambled eggs containing various cheeses,... More

We had an incredible brunch at Chez Peres. The light French menu had many delicious options. We selected the quiche of the day and asparagus crepes. They were both amazing. We also highly recommend the mimosas! We were able to sit and enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. The wait staff was very attentive and helped us to have a... More

On a recent stay in Traverse City, my wife and I came downstairs for our free breakfast in our chain hotel, only to find the place overrun by what appeared to be a female, high school sports team of some kind. A quick check of Trip Advisor uncovered this little gem and, after a short wait, we were seated for... More

Attentive service, fine food, beautiful presentation. Wife asked for scone and fresh fruit, which was not on menu--no problem. I had omelet pannaquet--very good but perhaps a bit too much hollondaise. Good coffee. Best for breakfast in TC.

We were visiting friends in Traverse City and this spot was reccomended for breakfast. The French Omelet was amazing - best omelet I think I have ever had. The food was served attactively, the plain coffee was excellent and the service was prompt, courteous and friendly.
