“I love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Great French food in a cafeteria type establishment. You are not waited on here, you grab a tray and stand in line. The food is worth it though.

“Cozy and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

After walking through downtown it was a very inviting place to stop for a late night coffee and dessert. Friendly staff, fresh pastry and hot beverages. Take a book or take a friend and enjoy!

“A true French breakfast and pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Excellent food choices and great coffee. The prices are quite reasonable and the staff is fantastic, very friendly but efficient. My hotel was across the street and there was no question that this was where we were going to have our breakfasts, after having a late lunch on arrival to Alexandria. It seemed to be a neighborhood gathering place on the weekend, with families and couples replaceing businees type people. Free wi-fi, authentic atmosphere

Great place for breakfast with excellent food and the bread is great. I liked the parisan breakfast which is an eggs Benedict but on a croissant.

“Place to eat fast and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Not too cheap though, but definitely tasty. The place is very cozy, staff is frendly, everything is fresh! And it is in the heart of Old Town on your way to the Waterfront, but not so close to metro station, but it is still on King Street!
