Very European cafe style restaurant. Waitress not the friendliest but everyone else was great. Tried the Three different kinds of Pate and the Duck breast salad. Everything was Wonderful. Especially the Chicken Liver Pate, had to take a double order home with me. No reservations for lunch.

My husband and I have eaten here in the past (cheese plates, egg dishes, etc.) and visited the restaurant again in July, 2014. This time we came only for drinks and a snack in the afternoon. This little restaurant is a delightful find and really captures the atmosphere of a French bistro. The white wine recommended to us by the... More

This place is the best cafe outside of Paris. I have been here twice for breakfast and both times awesome. You must get the cafe au lait, the cheese plate, and their famous brioche and baguette. With some butter and jam, I feel like I am in Paris again. Great little place however the washroom facilities were not very clean.

We stopped by for a small lunch and had some delicious French bread with a variety of 'charcuterie' (meat slices). Having visited Paris regularly, I can say this place comes very close to the real thing. A great place to go for Europeans who are fed up with American bread.

Apparently reservation is necessary even during the week days, which I guess is an evidence of high popularity of this place. The manager was kind enough to sit us without reservation after only a short wait. The menu is pleasantly different from many french-american restaurants. The cured meats most of which are made in house are delicious. The sausage that... More

What a finding! 5,000 miles from Paris you will find at "Le Pichet" French delicatessen as good as in Paris and at a very moderate price.

The beet salad was a transcendent experience. The duck salad also great. Skip the bavette (skirt steak)--my portion was not a good cut and had to leave half of it on the plate. Great selection of wines by the glass. My server was the bartender, Grant, and I would have taken him home with me if I could so he... More

Service was friendly. Food very good. Space somewhat tight. We enjoyed our meal and did not feel rushed as we lingered after dinner. Very good value for the price. The small space and hard surfaces made it somewhat noisy but I would go there again.

We stopped for a late night bite, as this was one of the few places open still serving food. What a delicious find, with a true french bistro feel. Well done!
