“Best creme brulee!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is the second time we’ve been to this Café Deluxe for dinner. On a Thursday night around 8:30, the restaurant was far less noisy than the American Tap Room, where it’d be totally impossible to have any kind of conversation. Café Deluxe was much quieter – not a lot of people at the bar, but the dining room was quite full with a much more pleasant atmosphere. Food here has been consistently good. This time had the daily seafood special, which was grilled scallops on tomato on a bed of spinach. It was one of the prettiest dish I’d ever seen, the white, red and green combination was just mouthwateringly fabulous both in presentation and taste. Topped off with a crème brulee, which was also one of the best ever, smooth and creamy with just the right texture and look. Our friends from out of town were impressed and everyone had a great time. Will definitely go back again.

“Always perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

We come here all the time as it is close to where I work. Always excellent and look forward to the next time we can go. Reasonably priced too!
