The staff was very good at making me feel like part of a family. They were attentive and welcoming. Above all ... the baked goods were divine. I had breakfast with my family and each dish was so delicious (since I tried them all) that I even bough some pastries to go! I recommend this place for breakfast or to... More

I love eating breakfast out on the patio... it is indeed delightful and a treat anytime. The food is very good and I especially love the herbed scrambled eggs and the Almond Croissant... Yummy!

This storefront French Bistro does not look like much from the outside. But, enter the front door and you are transported to the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris. This is a lovely place to visit with friends over a leisurely meal and enjoy good food and good friendship.

My wife and I had breakfast here twice. The scrambled eggs and potatoes were the best we have ever had. The coffee was very good and the croissants large and light. You won't be disappointed!

It is rare that French bakeries actually taste like the ones in France, but A Delight of France actually does. The Croissants are delicious and taste like the ones I had in Paris for breakfast with strawberry jam. The coffee is also very good, it is not as strong as the one in Europe but much much better than Starbucks.... More

Went there for Mother's Day brunch and it was packed...maybe that's why service was sooooo slow. I don't recall ever having to wait that long for everything the other times we went there. All in all, pretty good food and a nice change from a traditional breakfast; I loved the chocolate dipped strawberry, the mini chocolate cake and the glass... More
