We went for a late-breakfast/lunch - it is phenomenal! The baking and pastry items are authentic French creations. The salads are amazing, as are the crepes and other meals. I cannot recommend Cafe Framboise strongly enough. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Sorry for the delay answering! I hope you’ve visited by now. I don’t recall frappes, but we were impressed by all the lovely bakery options.
