“Paris Cafe here at home”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

After living overseas it was nice to walk in and have friendly, warm but not over zealous service. Our counter service helper actually talked us out of too much food. We ordered a bowl of the curry-corn chowder ($7.00), perfectly blended but not "over- curried", served with a slice of Provençal toasted bread.

We also decided to share a veggie panini with a side of greens and two coffees (mine a latte, his a house coffee).

They also sent us away with a baguette the length of our table as a gift. My husband is crazy for bread. Perfectly crisp outside, soft and moist inside.

Before we left we also decided to take home the "Oh God" square - he decided to slice off just a tiny sliver for us to try, " Oh Gosh" he is right! For those of you who do not use the Lord's name in vain... It is not in vain... Sorry... It is delicious! Such talented hands!

The music is a delight, Parisian and at times almost Spanish guitar?

Have fun!

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Everything looked amazing here, I wish I could have had a bite of everything in the case! We got their cronuts, one of each flavor and I will go back tomorrow for more!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is the first time I have stopped in for lunch at this cute little eatery, and I highly recommend it! I have had coffee on several occasions, and the pastries are the best! My guest and I had salads and they were fantastic! The artisan bread was also wonderful. We even got a few french lessons from the waiter! Great all around.

“I don't know about the rest of the food, but their version of the cronut!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Hello devilish indulgence! Oh how mad! a Donut and a Croissant? Oh Oh. I knew I was in trouble. This was the only place I found which served them nearby. I went. I bought three. With nutella! It can't be! but it was. I ate one and half. Now I need more! Must have more. AND try every kind.
