“Charming place!!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

I don't know where to begin!
This charming little restaurant is nested in a courtyard (as the name says). Me and my husband are their regular guests and we are taking all of our friends there. Food is great, creative and tasteful. The Music in the background is always great and you have a felling that you are sitting in a French family owned bistro. On Fridays and Saturdays there is a live sax player too!!! Divine! Their Wild mushroom pasta is to dye for, also salmon burger and sliders are on my top list. Organic and healthy smoothies served in a old fashion jars are yummy. Fresh squeezed lemonade on a hot day is a treat. If you are fond of Crêpé then Palachinke is to go for, served with a choice of Nutela/banana/strawberry topping versus Rose Hip Jam. After a good meal of course coffee is a must!
I think you have a very vivid picture by now ;)

“Delightful!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Great find...Delicious food...terrific Arnold Palmer very good service. Only issue is that the seating is metal chairs with cushions which are not secured so one needs to get "settled".

Only a few tables so a wait might be necessary. We didn't have to wait.

If you are looking to experience a breakfast slightly different from a typical american one- come and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere of this place.
Organic, healthy and made to order ( adjusted to any of your desires as well).
Enjoy:)

“Quiet fresh family owned heaven”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Love this place! Don't go if you're in a rush, but if you're in the mood to take your time eating light delicious freshly prepared food, this is your spot. The courtyard feels like ypu are away on vacation. Great breakfast lunch and dinner- have gone as a couple, with our young son and guests- always great!

Eggplant Parmesan is amazing every time light and delicious.
Something for everyone.

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Very cozy place in the middle of Montana Avenue. I came early for dinner and was surprised that they didn't serve alcohol, but it didn't stop me from ordering their cheese plate, mineral water and crepes w mint tea. The owner even came out to offer me rose bud jam for my crepes and it was super. If you have a chance to visit, don't hesitate and bring your wine. VERY ROMANTIC...
