A friend and I were looking for a place to take our moms to lunch. We found this little "bistro" on a little side street in Sewickley. It was the height of lunch time, so very busy and very noisy. We were fortunate to get a table for 4. Our food was very good-I had the vegetable crepe which was... More

Cafe des Amis is tucked away on a tiny cobblestone street off the beaten path in Sewickley, but it's worth finding. Very casual and a little quirky, but I've never had a bad meal here. Reliably good french-inspired bistro food. The crepes are outstanding, and their green salad topped with toasted goat cheese baguette slices is lunchtime perfection. The ladies... More

Was not impressed with lunch. I taught French cooking classes a long time ago and that Croque Monsieur was a C+. The Orzo & Spinach dish with sauce was dry. The ambiance was not really French. I might try again if in area to give it a second chance.

We've eaten here several times over the past few years when visiting family who live in Sewickley. Usually we eat in the restaurant, but the last time we took our food home to eat. Perfectly acceptable food, well prepared, efficient staff. You place your order at the counter and they will bring it to your table (or call you) when... More

My office is in Sewickley, so I frequent several of the restaurants here. I've been coming to the cafe on a regular basis since it opened several years ago. At that time it was owned by Eric, a Frenchman from Marseille, who spent the better part of a year teaching me French slang from Marseille and complaining about my Parisian... More

This little cafe is tucked away in an alley. That adds to its charm. They have some outside seating, but not much. The food is very good. My group had crepes, French toast, quiche and sandwiches. All were good. I especially liked the cappuccino. I think the prices are a little high. Lunch per person was $15+

We have eaten here twice now and the food had been very good both times. The crepes are made to order and very fresh. The ordering/serving part of it could use a bit if "tweaking" but other than that it is worth stopping in. We have also had omelets, French toast, and quiche. All were good, as well as the... More
