We found this restaurant by chance after passing the main Espanola Way restaurants as they were busy and loud. While most of the tables were occupied here, it was much more tranquil and we were able to sit at a table outside the front.
The menu had a good choice at reasonable prices. We chose Croque Monsieur and quiche. Service was friendly and quick and I checked with the waiter & they were indeed French (and not French-speaking Canadians).
The food arrived quite quickly and was presented nicely, however, I think the quiche was a better choice. Having Croque Monsieur in a baguette is not something we are used to at home and it wasn't as tasty as we had expected; it was a bit bland whereas the quiche was very good. Both were served with a salad garnish.
Inside it was very shabby-chic with old French ornaments, magazine and photos. Not something I had expected to find in South Beach.
We had an enjoyable lunch even if the food wasn't 100% successful and were pleased to have tried it out.
