“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

While reviews here and on some other sites have suggested quality has suffered, we had a very good breakfast that was very reasonable for the quality.

Would definitely return if in the area again.

“Great food... Great atmosphere!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

Nice European neighborhood eatery or French country inn feel. Croque Monsieur, French eggs Benedict, and bread selections are my favorites. Nice place for brunch or late lunch when hanging in old town. We come here several times a month and haven't been disappointed!

“Nothing like a little French pastry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Busy and noisy, but worth it. Helps if you speak French, but don't let that stop you from sampling the cuisine. A bit pricy, but most good things are.

“Very poor spot for breakfast.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Normally, the only advantage to a chain restaurant is reliability. Not true here. The food wasn't fresh or flavorful. We got soups that were plain, chicken ceasar salads that were sloppily thrown together and the entire restaurant was filthy. The staff was friendly, but not managing this location well.
