Oh My Goodness! Delicious!

What a gem of a restaurant in Jefferson! I had the Frittata and my husband had the Rooster Skin - both were excellent! The service was also excellent! We thought we might be in Paris again! From our bread to the salad to the entree to the bread pudding, we were extremely pleased! We will be back!

Great place to get breakfast in Downtown within walking distance of the Hotels. The staff was not as attentive to the customer as they could have been, but service was sufficient.

Over a 3 day visit in Jefferson, my friends and I ate here 3 times. We loved the bread, desserts, sandwiches, and salads, vegetable lasagna. Actually, everything we ate was delicious!

While staying at a local bed and breakfast, we found this bistro on Trip Advisor. I enjoyed it. I had the salmon and my husband had the rooster dish. For me, the salmon was too sweet but my husband loved the rooster dish! I would give this place another shot. I was too full to try their homemade deserts.

Service is a bit slow because it's all made in house & made to order. Freshness & perfection takes a little more time. I can truly appreciate that. As well, I appreciate that owner Gena and her staff are very welcoming and more than willing to accommodate one's diet, even Vegan and did a wonderful job at it.

Although the entrees can be pricey, they are well worth it. The sandwiches are a less expensive option and also delicious. Additionally, the bread,salads and desserts are top notch and the food is as good (if not better) than some higher end restaurants you'll find in the big city. Staff is friendly. Seating is tight, but it's a nice atmosphere.

We stopped in for dessert. A quaint little place with a cool vibe. The owner assisted us and was very friendly and accommodating even though walked in a few minutes after they were officially closed. The desserts were excellent as was the service. I highly recommend this place!

I had the bacon cheeseburger with homemade chips. Loved the cheeseburger and the chips were good. Dessert was the ultimate brownie ( not sure of the name ). You've gotta have the brownie warmed. Remarkable!

How a town of 2,000 people is so lucky to have a place like this, I don’t know. The food is consistenly delicious and there is always something new on the menu. Everything is made from scratch (which can add to wait time, but well worth it) and the service is impeccable. The dining room is darling and very cozy... More
