We had our breakfast here, and were very happy that we did so. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. My wife order the yoghurt and granola, and I ordered the poached eggs and wild mushrooms. Deeeeeelicious.

We went back to Cafe Chloe for the atmosphere and that habit-forming creme fraisch ice cream, but we were worried that we would have to wait for a table because it was 1 or 2 pm on a Saturday. Behold, a parking space was available across the street, and there were tables available--we sat at a great table with a... More

I never had Dinner here before, but Cafe Chloe offers real good breakfast/brunch. I highly recommend the lavender lemonade, bread/pastries and croquet madame.

My husband likes French food so we reserved at Café Chloe for our last night in San Diego. The café was cozy, charming and welcoming on a chilly night. My husband had the cassoulet; started with the gem salad; I had the coq au vin and we were both very pleased with our meal. Service was excellent and our bottle... More

I broke a cardinal rule of mine on dinning out; Don't go the day after a holiday. We drove 50 miles to have lunch, and cold rare beef on a bed of hot but VERY SALTY fries wasn't it. The beef was so cold the herb butter didn't even begin to melt. Does the hash slinger in back, with the... More

The front desk at The Palomar recommend this lovely French cafe. Service was excellent. Our waitress was quick to provide any information needed and to provide advice about other locally owned restaurants. Chloe was a a classic bistro with fabulous food. My Croque Madam was perfection. A great vibe. Don't miss this opportunity!

A friend and I were looking for someplace a little removed from the main drag of the Gaslamp Quarter. Hotel Andaz recommended it. Just a few blocks away. Reminded me of a neighborhood bistro in a much larger city (NY, Paris, London), not too big, nice buzz, but quiet enough to talk without raising voice. We had a table in... More

I was just in town for a business conference and spent 3 nights at the Indigo Hotel. Café Chloe was nearby and I ended up dining there 3 times. Service was pretty good, the food was great and overall, it was a wonderful experience in a downtown plagued by mediocre everything. Of note was the cafe latte, the fresh pomegranate... More

I visited Cafe Chloe at the recommendation of a nearby hair salon, and that was my good fortune. This tiny French bistro is just on the outskirts of the Gaslamp Quarter, on a fairly quiet corner. I sat outside to take advantage of the lovely sunny weather for a late lunch. The brunch menu, which is served all day, is... More
