Description: Step into the relaxed sophistication of an authentic Parisian bistro and sidewalk cafe. Bonnie Ruth’s Café Trottoir et Patisserie pays homage to the classic 'French Bistro'. Dine on Steak Frites, Moules Marnière, and Duck Leg Confit. Sip a classic cocktail at our Belle Époque style bar. Join us for Sunday Brunch and eggs benedict on the patio near the fire place, handmade blueberry cream cheese crepes under the rotunda by the fountain or an omelet with a mimosa in the sun. "The vibe is undeniably French A starter of moules Marnière was served in a daunting cast-iron skillet, where dozens of plump Prince Edward Island mussels lay tumbled in a bath of butter, garlic, white wine and lemon juice. The seafood was fresh and firm, just barely infused with the essence of the fragrant broth that surrounded it. Another stunning entree was the skate Grenobloise."

Their gorgeous patio is the best place to spend a warm afternoon sipping a glass of wine and pretending you are somewhere in Italy. The food and service are always outstanding. My favorite dishes are the Nicoise Salad, the Chicken Penne Pasta, and the Chicken Paillard. But the real temptation is the to-die-for Blueberry Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Friends had recommend this cafe for Sunday Brunch. We must agree that it was a very nice brunch for a good value. There was a good assortment of choices, an omelet bar and lots of pastries. Our server ensured that we experienced all that was offered and kept our drinks filled. Certainly will be returning.

Great for something different. The menue is diverse and each dish has attention to detail. Service is a bit French. Meaning they expect you to take your time and enjoy the food an a drink or two. If your in a hurry you must let the staff know.

nothing to write about. our waiter was excellent and well versed in the food as listed on the menu, and was very efficient.. our martini tasted like a fruit drink without vodka, probably because we were given the happy hour price. escargot was good, not exceptional. we had the shrimp and lobster crepes, which were pricey for what you got,...

One of the more disappointing restaurant trips. After some great brunches, tried dinner. Not sure if owners are absent for holidays, etc but virtually everything was average to poor. Escargots tasted like they had been warmed over several times-dry, tough, tasteless. Steak was overdone, tough, and tasteless. Mashed potatoes seemed like they were from instant box. With all the good... More

Service is ok. Rations are small and pricy. Desserts were good and several to choose from. Drinks are pricy like most bar places. Its a neat hang out but needs to have more vsriety of appetizers.

We eat here frequently as it is a neighborhood bistro. Excellent lunch faire. Dinners great too. Recommend shrimp in a skillet, dip bread in sauce. Steak and frites wonderful, as is salad with drunken pears. If you want to have quiet dinner conversation, ask to be seated on right-hand side of restaurant. Right side houses bar and music is too...

My husband and I had brunch after church and loved the lively atmosphere, attentive staff and the variety of food. Loved the chicken pesto pasta, best I've had and I am not a fan of pesto but I had several servings. The bread pudding is awesome! Can't wait to return.

Had been to Bonnie Ruth's when it first opened and was looking forward to a delicious breakfast buffet on Sunday with the family. Sadly it was crowded, hot, and the food was unexciting....just mediocre. Very disappointing. Don't think I'll journey north again.
