My son lives very close. Been here many times. Used to be very good. New owners? Not any more. Noisy music - place is empty. Maybe the music is to overpower the noisy owners cackle.

My partner and I decided to walk around the Gaslamp area to figure out where the great restaurants were located as we were keen on eating a super tasty dinner meal. We sauntered by Cafe Chloe once and then walked by a second time stepping in to ask about the vegetarian meals that they might offer on the menu. Well,... More

I read a review that said this restaurant was among the best in SD, sadly I disagree. The service is good but the food is really NOTHING extraordinary, I would sadly say I like in n out burgers than Chloe's ones and the prices are way high, not recommended.

We liked Café Chloes so much that we went back twice on our week-long visit to San Diego, once for dinner, and once for a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. Service is friendly and prompt; dining is relaxed and delicious. We sat outdoors to enjoy the lovely weather, but the inside seating is delightful as well. The... More

We've been returning to this place for years, and the food quality has stayed at the same high level. It's rather a Bistro than a Cafe. Menu tends to be small, but everything is tasty. It used to take long for the food to be ready, but not anymore. Always courteous service.

Though maybe not the cheapest place in town, this little spot was amazing for breakfast-Out of the two entrees we tried the Croque Madame was over the top wonderful and the one I tried, that was an open faced sandwich with mushrooms was also very good. Coffee was excellent and the atmosphere is definitely French chic. LOVE! Also noteworthy is... More

Best meal in San Diego. We were a family of four with a baby. Had the poached eggs (which are so much better than ordinary Eggs Benedict), Croque Madame, and onion tart. Onion tart appeared small and the rest of the family was offering me some of their's. But it was so filling with caramelized onions and cheese, it turned... More

We flew in and met here for brunch before a family wedding. The coffee was excellent, and I am very particular about coffee. The trout salad was fresh and creative. The atmosphere was friendly and cozy, perfect for an intimate brunch with family and friends. I love Paris and it was fun to be in a place that felt quite... More

Visited here on a busy and buzzy Sunday lunchtime. The burger was very tasty and the fries were super stringy (in a good way). Would come back.
