We visited Mount Dora and it was over 100 degrees, the day we visited. As we passed Cecile's French Corner the table and chairs situated in the shade were so inviting. The waitress was lovely and friendly and we served promptly. We only stopped for a beer and a sandwich and had no complaints. Great stop. It is close to... More

My son, wife, and I ate lunch at Cecile's yesterday and everything was good. Two of us had crepes and both were delicious, One of two of us had salads. One was very nice, the other had a little wilted lettuce, but otherwise very tasty. Service was warm and friendly. Food was French and affordable.

We found this to be a delightful little place where you sit out under huge oak trees to dine. There are a few tables inside as well, but not many. We had the creamy brie baked on french bread served with a sweet cranberry sauce, apples and walnuts. Also, the dessert crepe with Nutella, strawberries, and whipped cream. Delicious! Next... More

You've got to stop in for breakfast if your in Mt. Dora. There is a patio with ceiling fans and wicker furniture. You can watch the people walk by as you enjoy wonderful French coffee and crepes of every flavor, dessert and entree options. They are open for dinner certain times of the year. You'll want to check before planning... More

We love this place. Everything about it. Staff, Food, beverages and outdoor seating for that café feel. Wonderful cheese plates, soup and sandwiches. Great lunch or light dinner.

It was off season and things were slow around here, but I popped into this place and had a delightful evening. I was the only one there so of course the service was good! They were out of several things I wanted, but getting to visit with waiter Matthew made my dinner all the more enjoyable.

My husband and I have been going to Cecile's for years. Although I enjoy quiche, my honey is a quiche connoisseur...and this is his favorite place for quiche with a crust! The salad is excellent, as are the crepes and cheeses. Desserts are excellent, but we're generally so full, we have to take them home to eat later!

This place looked great. Nice architecture overlooking the lake and a nice singer performing. But everything else about it was horrible. We sat inside due to the heat. It was unkempt, with CDs from the player everywhere and a fly buzzing about us. The kitchen staff looked a bit dirty and unprofessional. In the end we went back outside to... More
