My daughter and I had brunch here on a Sunday. The traffic getting there was heavy as it was all over town. Amazingly, we found a place to parallel park a few steps from the bistro. You can sit inside and dine but it is cramped and a little dark, so I would opt to dine out front in the... More

Have only been for breakfast which is always delicious with a nice range of menu items. Crown City Bristro is small so there can sometimes be a wait but it is worth a little bit of time to enjoy a great breakfast.
