“Over price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

I was attracted by their French atmosphere on Sunday morning.We paid $80 for our family of 4 for brunch.They promoted themselves using all organic produce.
2 tartines (open sandwich) ($13 one spread thin with tuner salad,hummus,white beans on one slice of organic bread;$12 the other is chicken,cheese and leek on one slice of organic bread),$4 for a large cafe au lat (yak),$5 a homemade like brownies, $12 for a 2" X 4" quiche lorraine(ham and cheese),$13 for a 6" plate goat cheese, pear, and walnut salad, $4.5 extra for 4 slices smoke salmon$6 pistachio pie?
We asked for some substitute,I love "sunny side up", the waitress said they don't have egg to do it?! My boy doesn't like leek but instead for pepper...she said they can't do it.I asked to put smoke salmon on top of my salad,she at first said no..then she said that she would put it on side...Will the price, but lousy service, I would rather go "the little next door" at Hollywood better!!!
