Beautiful spot and the food is excellent! Very cool French vibe going on. On a nice day, they open up 2 huge sliding doors and it's so unique. The decor is lovely and the chocolate croissants must be straight from Paris!

Cappuccino too small and undrinkable Caprese sandwich inedible (the bread was frozen the mozzarella too) My neighbor didn't eat his omelet and his desert The place was dirty especially the chairs. So 44$ for two person to eat & drink nothing is too much.

We went there for the brunch on Sunday. Food was absolutely tasteless.Burger was plain and poorly presented. Crab egg benedict was sooooo heavy - looks like the sauce was totally off. Very, very avarage! Would not recomment it.

Loved the brunch, the staff are friendly and polite. It's located by the water and the boat center under Keybridge. We did the paddle boarding before going for the brunch.

Wasn't there for a meal but a fundraising event, so I can't judge for the food as that was laid on by the organizers. But the location is quirky, and a pleasant stroll over from the renovated waterfront park. High ceilings at two levels, with...More
