Description: Felix landrum opened cafe felix with his brothers in 1997. After two years of operating as a european cafe, they acquired a liquor license and added a full menu of european bistro-inspired food. The felix menu offers delicious and versatile small plates, hearty main dishes, sweet and savory crepes, a variety of sandwiches and homemade soups, six different preparations of p.e.i. Mussels, and a scrumptious breakfast menu (served on saturday's and sunday's).

“Pleasant place, good food”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The restaurant is right on Main Street - always fun and busy. The decor inside is very nice, really feels like a French bistro. The portions were small. We had the scallops and the salmon-which by themselves would not have been enough for dinner. Also had the pommes frites--not exceptional. The desserts, however, are very large. Service was just fine. Lots of other places to try first, so wouldn't feel compelled to return immediately.

“Go for drinks, not the food”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

So we thought we we would have a drink and hors'doerves outside at Cafe Felix. It took forever to get our drinks. I had the cucatini. It was delicious but definitely not worth the wait. The appetizer we ordered were terrible. We ordered the escargot which was a poor excuse for a french hors'doerves. We also ordered a meatball appetizer with marinara as they didn't have an brushetta. Again, Not good. Recommend only for drinks, if you have the time.

“Very Nice Lunch”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

My first time to Cafe Felix and we went for lunch. The inside was very nice, the service was very pleasant, although at the time we went - there was few people there. This has me a little worried, but lunch was just simply excellent. I had their Salmon Crepes and they were good. Came with a salad, which was also good. Great location and an excellent experience. No complaints...!

Reviewed August 7, 2013

Nice location right on main street with on street seating. Food is good. Probably a better breakfast brunch place than dinner.

“Cool place, decent food, ok service.”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Cafe Felix is great for ambiance. It's straight out of an art poster. It's also got a lot of great cocktails. Other than the looks and the bartender everything else is kind of pedestrian. It's a good meal, but I don't crave it or rave about it later. It's a solid B+ A-. I got the steak and it was a bit overcooked. My sides were so so. The other people in our party liked it. Our service was lacking too. Bottom line, I would go back.
