“Quickly becoming a favorite.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This looks like an unassuming bakery from the front, but venture in for weekday lunch, Friday and Saturday dinner, or an exceptional Sunday brunch. The food has a creole flair that is a little different from anything else in town. The service is earnest and helpful and the prices won't shock your wallet. The wine list could use a little help.

“Eat dessert first!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

We have had lunch and dinner here. It is a tiny treasure in Fairhope. The service has improved since it first opened. The staff knows their menu and make the meal enjoyable! But the desserts are fabulous!

We have eaten here several times and really enjoy this adorable cafe. Great atmosphere and tasty desserts and coffee. Great place to stop for a break from walking the shops.

“Authentic bistro food with Southern staples mixed in.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

It isn't big nor is it much to look at. However, it delivers where it counts. The bistro items are all delicious and how it's prepared in French bistros. The southern staples are not authentic, of course, but done in such a way that even these items get a bistro flair. It's a unique concept for Fairhope and well worth a try.
