Date night with an exciting movie followed by a quick trip down the escalator to a fun French cafe. Great duo. Ordered a lovely pale blush Rose. Now you are in France. We sat outside and watch strolling shoppers while we dined. They have an amazing 2 Avocado halves salad. One is heaped with tuna and the other egg curry... More

The Cafe is adjoined to American Rag Cie away from the majority of the restaurants at Fashion Island so it may well go unnoticed by many if you do not know about this little gem. Very quaint, delicious food and our server was very lovely complete with a french accent which made it so much better. Warm, cozy atmosphere and... More

We came here for lunch on a Sunday to meet a friend and her family who are visiting from Arizona . The weather was perfect so we opted for outside sitting and also because my other friend brought her dog with her. We had a reservation as this place gets filled up really quickly. I ordered the crab and shrimp... More

We stopped in here for breakfast while staying in Newport. French is not usually my first choice but this place turned out to be great. The ambiance is open and airy. My daughter ordered some chocolate milk and I think it was the best I've ever had. Our waiter,Elwin, was fantastic. I would eat here again.

I popped in to this café for breakfast with several family members, and we were all pleased with our meals. The ambiance is relaxed and bright, and has the feel of an airy French bistro. Loved the savoury breakfast crepe and the pain au chocolat. After a recent trip to the south of France, this place was a treat. Practice... More

Another wonderful experience at this cafe. A little touch of France in Newport Beach! We had the special strawberry tart and French press coffee, both recommended by our wonderful server, Francois. His enthusiasm and knowledge of the menu added to our lovely experience. I've written about this café before… I can't say enough. Every time I come here I feel... More

My son brought me here for my bday brunch. It was a Monday so not crowded. I enjoyed the quiche while he had a Caesar salad. And, I had a mimosa-of course! 😉 Andy was our server and took excellent care of us. Everything was delish.

I'm french and the french food (cheese, meal, etc) was very good. Not too expensive. I really enjoy the moment. I recommend this place if you want to try French specialities.

Met my mom for a little caffe and pastry. Warning: this place is busy on a Saturday morning. We took our goodies outside to table in the sun. Glorious day! Delicious lattes. Daughter had a hot chocolate that she enjoyed along with cinnamon rolls and a scone. All were wonderful.

This is a cute French restaurant with decent service. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the food. I ordered a basic ham and cheese crepe and found the crepe part to be inedible...it looked and tasted over cooked and bitter. Seems like a crepe should be easy peasy fare for a French cafe.

Thank Mary M
