Enjoyed a nice selection of salads and wonderful fresh-made muffins. $5 house wines. Great spot for lunch with fantastic desserts like 15 layer crepe cakes and creme brulee cheesecake!

It's only available for a limited time, but try the "brick chicken". Half a chicken served with a salad and tiny potatoes. Excellent. The service and the ambience are both French Cafe. Buy one meal, get one meal free coupons are available.
