Cute little restaurant/dessert-champagne bar. Went for dessert and coffee after dinner. Since we didn't have reservations and there were 5 in our party, it took a while to get a table. It's a great place to have coffee and a dessert and chat. Unfortunately, for us, it isn't the kind of place that a party larger than 4 can just... More

It seems more famous for the bubbly than the food. It has a good selection of sparkling wines (flights also). Dessert menu is very good. It's more like a wine bar than a restaurant and that can be fun if you're jumping around "Old Pasadena". Worth a try if you've not been there.

This place is very unique and fun. One can opt for champagne tasting or single glass. The dessert menu is wonderful. We were here on business and just happened upon this spot and will definitely come back. The atmosphere is old world elegance with brickwork and chandeliers. The service was top notch as well.

Fun spot and great desserts! Don't think we would ever eat dinner there but have gone a few times for our after dinner dessert & drinks. Missing one star because the service is good but could be so much better. Hostess on 7/22 was excellent and we sat up front so we saw the guy manager & I think the... More

I love to come here. The atmosphere is amazing with it's old red brick inside and out and fabulous chandeliers. The food is great not much gluten free. The brunches are expensive considering what you get. A dessert bar with desserts smaller than a 50 cent piece.

I wasn't as thrilled with the recommendation of the server for a glass of champagne as I wanted to be --- but the food, and the other champagne was great. I also really love the space. Fun, unique - and off the "regular" path.... close enough for shopping before dinner. I love the farro and kale salad -

I've been here during happy hours and dinner. thought the place was cute for a girls get together. enjoyed the appetizers and bubbly. So I put together a girls brunch and was a bit disappointed with the food. but mostly the lack in service & wrong communication on pricing. Brunch is $25 and if you wish to have bottomless drinks...

We absolutely loved the food and dessert but the service and non-caring manager made the experience aggravating and we would not go back!

We were celebrating a birthday and had a nice big booth for the six of us in the back part of the dining room. The decor is "Paris Bistro in the 20's" - there was live music which was nice but if my table would have been near the band it would have been difficult to carry on a conversation.... More
