I found it and was very impressed by the pastry cases. They had 6 full display cases of sweets. And the colors made my mouth water. I had fruit tart and coffee there and took a bag of cookies and a bag of macaroons home. The cookies were pretty but not the best I have had, I'm sorry to report.... More

I took a customer to lunch her and the Salad Nicoise was wonderful. Tuna, Sardines, fresh greens, olives, egg. All you could ask for. My customer has a cheese and fruit plate that looked spectacular. I had to push myself away from the pastry shelves. It all looked so good.

The food is fresh but the service needs a great deal to be desired. Restaurant was not busy but we had to wait and wait for our order to be taken while the wait staff loitered leaning on a wall. Finally, one of us went and asked if we could order. Water glasses were filled but water also splashed on... More

We had a wonderful breakfast with friends here. I had a fresh fruit cup and a pastry with a tall glass of juice. Our waitress was very helpful and we were splitting one kids meal between our kids since they do not eat very much yet. She brought each kid their own plate with everything divided.

Love lunch at this place. They also have a wonderful bakery and the most glorious decorated cakes. And they taste good I can't seem to order anything but the French onion soup. Love it.

This is a place I like to visit when I get the chance, and they have great baked items. There's a pastry counter separate from the main dining area, which I enjoy. My favorite French onion soup is here, too.

This bakery has the best crescents in the world. The macaroons were light and tasty as well. I especially loved the strawberry cream crescent. They toasted it up in the oven so it was crispy and warm. Just delightful.

The best croissant I've ever had. Now all the others are going to taste flat and pale by comparison, but it was worth it. We came for breakfast in the cafe. I had the eggs benedict, my wife had the ham and cheese croissant. The croissant was huge and flavorful, and the eggs benedict with rosemary potatoes were delicious. Wish... More
