Outstanding lunch. Best French onion soup ever! I had a green salad to accompany the soup and my husband had the lox. Best lunch in San Diego with outside seating and a great wine list.

Cute bistro with delicious food. The cheese plate was beautifully presented and so good. Everyone in my group was happy with their meal. Restaurant is small so make sure to make a reservation but they were able to accommodate our group of 8 well.
