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."

First time here and came for lunch. Our server Joey was a real gem, offering helpful suggestions and being attentive without being overbearing. We both had salads which were beautifully done and the chicken was done to perfection. The bread was excellent. Prices are reasonable and place has a nice vibe to it. Definitely want to try their Sunday Brunch.

Funny, that I have been here for happy hour dozens of times but not for dinner. Happy hour rocks with great drink specials and 50% off apps. Absolute wed and ladies Thursday offer great deals. You have to have the mussels... In wine sauce. You will lap up the broth, and no one will judge you;)

Bonnie Ruth's is a local favorite. Other than a good lunch and dinner, they bake a full array of desserts! It's one of the best kept secrets of Frisco. Every item is fresh and tastes awesome! For dessert and some wine, this is the place.

Although this is a very nice dinner spot and the desserts are amazing, the best meal you can get at Bonnie Ruth's is their Sunday Brunch. From the made to order omelettes to French Toast, Prime Rib etc etc. Fantastic.

A quiet dinner, outstanding service and amazing taste sensations made for a perfect evening! Sitting on the tree covered patio, with lights dancing above, and soft music setting the tone, an incredible dining experience was had... My favorite place on the planet! Never a disappointment, always a pleasure... I'm a 'frequent flyer' at this place!

Bonnie Ruth's always provides delicious food which makes it so hard to select my favorite. You can always expect yummy soups and salads and the Salad Trio is an opportunity to sample 3 of the wide variety offered. Quiche is quite good and with the accompanying salad or fruit is a hearty meal. Omelettes are light and so tasty, just... More

New Menu and prices and I didn't like either one. $17 for a sandwich is ridiculous. We all asked for items from the old menu and they prepared it for us. There are too many pasta dishes that are very creamy and oily. Let's start with improving the French menu.

I met a friend here for lunch today. It had been a while since my last visit. Why did I wait so long? The food, as always, was excellent and the patio is such a peaceful, relaxing spot. Our waiter was extremely good, giving my friend and I time to chat and catch up without bugging us or ignoring us... More
