I ate in this restaurant while I was living and working in Paris in 1999-2000. It was the new, trendy restaurant in the hip section of town (the Marais). Now, I go to it in Old Town. It has been Americanized but still serves French favorites. The tables are family style. The coffee is good. The food tastes good but the servings are small by this country's standards and some of the food they serve now is a bit fussy. Anyway, I like it for brunch. It is definitely overpriced. Plan on dropping $30 bucks or thereabouts for your single egg, 2 salmon slices and bread with coffee--throw in a mimosa. I like the atmosphere.

All you need to know is that you must order the Belgian waffle. It is the best breakfast delight ever. It's as great atmosphere in the heart of old town. Everything is organic and tastes delicious.

My wife and I ate here twice on a recent trip to Alexandria! The omelets were the reason. In addition there was great service.

When look for options besides the greasys.. This is a definite option.
Taste and style are all here in the food.
Quality is obvious with freshness and presentation of the plates a real experience. Overall a very nice and comfortable experience.

Bakery experience with high top and communal tables. Bread is exceptional and you just cannot get enough! Great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch!
