During sightseeing, we jumped off the 211 bus and walked across the street to this darling place. Warm greetings and service. We had the Croq Monsieur's, salad with homemade Roquefort dressing and Blenheim SC ginger ale and Gus lemonade. Delicious, Quick and would highly recommend.

No they don’t serve breakfast all day and sadly can’t say when they stop the lunch menu but at least until 2 or 3 pm
