Very interesting menu, service so-so

An easy spot to comfortably dine alone as the tables are small and seating areas tight. A broad menu and I enjoyed a crepe with Raclette cheese, potatoes and prosciutto, a fresh, lightly dressed spring greens salad and a roll. A cream sauce described on the menu didn't make it on the plate. Wait... read more

Always enjoy coming to LBE for a taste of France. We have not had a bad dish here. Our yearly tradition is to come for lunch after picking our son up from camp in the Poconos. Excellent croque madam avec frities for lunch. Great salads and crepes as well. Go next door to sister restaurant, Picasso for tapas. Chef/owner is... More

This is a lovely little gem which will make you feel like you have traveled to France. Traditional french food, crepes, salads and other great choices, all delicious. A great place for a relaxed lunch.

Had lunch with a friend/colleague/fellow alum recently. The food, as usual, was very good, and the service was prompt. My only complaint is that our server, while competent, gave off the feeling that he either didn't like his job or was annoyed we didn't order more. Maybe it's the style the restaurant is trying to promote and while I am... More

Have always enjoyed every meal at LBE Cafe even before when they were a BYO (bring it back!). Food is fresh and always as described. Pleasant atmosphere and never an issue getting a table. Seems our server was new and didn't know French/French food/Wine but still was charming and nice. Limited wine list but reasonably priced. Food pricing a bit... More

Nice, friendly staff. They have the best quiche and salad. Prices are very reasonable. Located in the heart of Media, PA, it's a great place to enjoy a delicious meal prepared by a wonderful chef.

We had lunch here yesterday. The staff was welcoming and the cafe reminds me of many French cafes I have visited in France, except the tables are spaced with more room around them. They have a lovely wine list, I had a glass of their french Chardonnay, which was delicious. My friend has the Eggs Benedict, which they loved especially... More
