Wonderful Lunch

In a stretch of East Bay Street crammed with restaurants, we spotted this small cafe. We chose to sit just inside the open french doors to watch the sidewalk while eating our lunch. Service was attentive and very friendly. Our sandwiches were innovative combinations, fresh, and prepared well. Our... read more

My husband and I were looking for a bar or club geared to a more mature clientele. We stumbled across this gem and were blown away. Dim lights, Tony Bennett and Gaga singing in the background. A very sweet gentlemen who I assume is the owner and a lovely young lady waited on us. I had the grapefruit negroni which... More

This place is just adorable. So lovely inside. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. I got a latte and it was made excellently. I cant speak to the food but if its as good as the coffee, I'm sure its wonderful. Such a cute place.

My niece and I stopped in for a drink. We both had versions of an espresso martini. The twist? They put in a Ferrero Rocher candy as the 'olive' for the martini. Yum. The people at the bar were friendly and we all had a good time talking about our visits and making recommendations as to where to go next.... More

Stopped by for a quick breakfast. Croissants were amazing and the croissant breakfast sandwich was about as good as it gets: fresh, perfect temperature, nicely served. Coffee was good and service was delightful. We'll be back!!

We stopped here for lunch on the day we were gallery hopping. The food was a wonderful surprise! The pork tenderloin with goat cheese and capers was as good as anywhere we have eaten in France. The accompanying chutney was the best I have ever tasted. The chef is going to send me his recipe! We went back over for... More

We ate here for lunch and it was great! We each ordered a hot panini and the portions were satisfying. We also ordered the crème brûlée...it was delicious!

The decor and menu offerings immediately reminded me of the little street cafes in the center of Paris. The croissants and pastries displayed on the counter inside are irresistible and a perfect savory compliment to the best latte and cappuccino I have tasted in all my travels. All the coffee and espresso offerings are made from locally roasted organic coffee... More
