A great find - good mix of French and local flavors

I had the "Thursday" night special - a stew - and it was great. Good comfort style french food. Had fried oysters as an app and onion soup. Prices were very reasonable and service was good. The servers provided some good recommendations - they were spot on. Will be back.

Locals place in a great area for strolling after your meal. Took reservations which was nice because there can be quite a wait. Food was great with quite a variety.

Wow! Now this is a breakfast place. The food was amazing! Everything was prepared to perfection! Although the restaurant was busy, the food came out quickly. A must stop if you're in that area of town.

I could actually eat at Can Can every weekend for brunch. It is actually one of my favorite places to satisfy my palate. You can actually taste all the marvelous flavors and fresh ingredients that go into each meal. The sauces are to die for. Perfection!!! I look forward to seeing what ingredients the Chef incorporates into the menu. Even... More

We decided on a whim to eat dinner here and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My husband had the French onion soup and veal entree and I had the pear salad and veggie risotto - everthing was tasty. We also made room for dessert - you need to try the fruit crisp with lemon ice cream - yummy! I also... More

In the heart of Cary Town the Can Can Brasserie is the destination for any meal. My wife and I go here for our anniversary. We generally go for Sunday Brunch. This is a place that you can get French and New Orleans cuisine at its best. You might look at it as a dressier restaurant but it is very... More

Interesting mix of customers, enjoying lively atmosphere. Delicious food, have never been disappointed. It is a bit noisy, but this adds to atmosphere. Attentive service. Parking can sometimes be challenging, depending upon time of day. Will return.
