“Magnifique!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Cafe Chloe truly is a gem. The paveside location makes you feel like you are in paris, the staff are wonderful, the wines delicious. I have been for both brunch at the weekend and also lunch with a client during the week. The salmon salad was divine for lunch. But the brunch will blow you owe away. Almond croissants, lavender and honey granola, lavender mimosas, scumptious rose wine. It is a top spot that I will return to again and again.

“Cute French Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I came here solo and sat at an outside table. I had the mussels frites followed by a fabulous pistachio bread pudding. The service was very friendly and attentive. The inside was packed on a Wednesday night around 8 so reservations are probably wise. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat!

“Great Euro-style cafe in downtown SD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Cafe Chloe is not in the prime tourist zone but is definitely worth a detour. Place was busy on a Sunday afternoon, but staff was friendly and on the ball. Food and coffee were excellent. Will go back!

“Hope to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Charming little place off the main drag of the Gaslamp District. Delicious French bistro food at reasonable prices. We wanted to go back the next night but didn't want to walk in the rain!

“Delightful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We wanted something walking distance to our hotel that had great food and didn't feel touristy. This fit the bill perfectly. Everything we got (there were 3 of us and we shared bites) was really good, and the place had a nice atmosphere. The only downsides: the chairs weren't particularly comfortable, and they don't have a full bar (just wine and beer). But very much thumbs up for this place.
