“Very French!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

A lovely nice little French restaurant with friendly service and an absolute French/European feel.
If you want a French breakfast, try the “pain au chocolat” or “pain aux raisins”, this is the real French taste!
What I really like is this nice little treat that is served with your coffee or tea, a little piece of “crepes sucrees”, mmmm.
Fantastic place for a nice light lunch. On the menu you’ll find the original French galettes and crepes, many varieties to choose from.
I haven’t tried the dinner menu yet, but I definitely go back soon.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

What a fantastic little place. Owned by a French Ex-pat from Chablis our waitress was from Berlin, this place had a very European feel. The food was as good as any bistro you'd find 13 time zones away.

“Great Baguette.....Poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My wife and I wanted a simple lunch so we dropped in to this quaint French style sandwich/crepe/galette spot. Of the first 4 items that we ordered, NONE were available. The waitress seemed totally out of her element.
The Tuna/egg on baguette was good but the inability to differentiate what WAS and what WAS NOT available made for an unhappy/chaotic lunch.
