A charming find! This tiny cafe features fresh and authentic French food! Salads, baguettes and coffee are excellent and very reasonably priced. I liked this place so much that I went two Saturdays in a row. Waiters are very accommodating. Get there early because a place this good draws a crowd!

The menu has a variety of options, but salmon is the common theme. I had the salad Provence and it was delicious with a bed of greens, Kalamata olives, poached salmon, house made dressing and a few other veggies. It was a full Plate- a full meal and cost $9.50. I did not try the French soda but the blood... More

This is a pleasant find that was discovered when we were looking for a light meal. The owner/chef speaks fluent French and comes out to interact with his diners. The salads that the three of us ordered were made with fresh vegetables and, as requested, chicken to add a protein source. The seating area is rather small but worth the... More

Very tasty and filling sandwiches. Lamb sandwich and duck pate, hot prawn were perfect. Very authentic French cuisine (sandwiches)and the staff is very friendly (and they speak French ). If you like French food and sandwiches, this is the perfect place for you. Merci Chef for the desserts.

The ambience is a far cry from a French bistro but the food is right on! This modest little place, with French posters and postcards tacked on the wall, looks more like a sketchy deli but take a look at the menu and your mouth begins to water…especially if you, like my husband and me, have lived in France. How... More

Cafe Rolle is primarily a sandwich shop, but viva la difference. The staff is all French from the kitchen to the wait staff. And the food, while primarily lunch time fare, is as good as you will find anywhere in the US. Be prepared to wait a while for your table as it is very popular but the wait is... More

We came from out of town and met a friend here for lunch on a Saturday. The cafe was very busy but we had a table outside in about 15 minutes. We started with the pate appetizer which was very delicious and authentic. For lunch, the menu features salads, cold sandwiches and croque monsieur (hot sandwiches). Two of our favorites... More

Went with a friend for lunch and I was a bit disappointed because it was a lot more casual than I was expecting. It was very crowded and the staff seemed to be stretched thin but the food was fantastic and worth the short wait we had for tables to be cleared and drinks. Sandwiches and salads were a big...

Not much to say that hasn't been said previously. Great good and service. Six for lunch, two chicken and brie, two dill salmon and brie, 1 lamb sandwich, and 1 Fois Gras salad. Accompanied by Lorina sodas, and followed with three brûlée's. The portions were sharable, enjoyed by all and the bread, "heavenly". The homemade fois gras, dijon mustard, and... More

Chicken melt was delicious. French chef and servers spoke French. It was a European cafe experience. For lunch excellent. Dinner probably not.
