We were pressed for time and needed to have breakfast before heading out for an afternoon sail. We stopped in to French Roast at the suggestion of our hotel and loved it! The atmosphere is wonderful -- Parisian and charming. The service was great and quick (which we appreciated) and the crowd seemed to be a local group. Our food... More

We dropped by for a quick meal - eight people. Most of us ordered burgers. It was very tasty and the fries excellent! All at an affordable price! Enjoy!

The staff were so polite, friendly and talkative and the food was incredible. I feel like we robbed them with the price we paid. It was a great night, thanks to this place. Well worth going.

Walked past this place a few times last week while in the village with my daughter and decided to give it a try. It's quite unassuming but after reading some other reviews here my husband and I decided to try it for dinner. It was terrific. The following week we went back one day for breakfast. Service was friendly both... More

This was right around the corner from our hotel, and the food, coffee, and service were good enough that we ended up eating breakfast there three out of our four mornings in the city (we only found it on the second day). I'm (ovo-) vegetarian and found I had several options, my favourite being the french toast with berries. Friendly... More

Four of us had supper here in October of 2012. I really cannot recall what any of us had but we all shared bites and we were all very pleased with our choices. This is a corner restaurant in the Village and I'm sure it caters to locals. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

We sat outside for a drink and desert. We had an outstanding creme brullee! Service was a bit inattentive, but on the plus side, we were never rushed...

We could not go past without noticing the popularity of this Bar/ cafe/ restaurant. We stopped for a beer and enjoyed the buzz of the crowd inside - it isn't quiet but it has a great atmosphere. Very good service and menu and it is a top spot to see the world go by.

Was seated immediately. I ordered quickly and was served my food within 5-10 minutes. I ordered the pumpkin ravioli and it was outstanding.
