“Pleasantly Nice But....”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

It was a nice pleasant place hidden down a side street in Mount Dora. We never would have found it unless someone told us about it. I had a quiche and my wife had a sandwich (vegetarian). The portions were a bit on the small side but tasty. My wife had to ask for mayonnaise since there wasn't any on the sandwich. Otherwise it was a pleasant experience. I suppose I might return but it was a bit pricey. Funny thing though you have to go across the street for the rest rooms.

“DEEEELICIOUS”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Their food is fresh, and the service is fun.... Dog friendly..We love to take our Boxer wherever we go. He was given a bowl of water as soon as we sat down. This makes a dining experience soooo relaxing.

“A good discovery - an excellent restaurant.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Found by chance on visiting Mt. Dora.

The choice and quality of the food was excellent as was the service.

Be warned - if choosing a cheese platter - it is huge - comes with a salad and fresh fruit.

Such good value

“Bon Appetit”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

Loved eating outside. I had the chicken and mushroom with cream sauce crepe which was delicious. A cup of the brie and mushroom soup, also good and of course the banana, walnut and chocolate crepe. YUMO!!

“So bad, we just had to laugh”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

It was a rather cool day, so we choose to sit inside. The waiter, an elderly man that looked pale and his demeanor was bored, came over to us. We greeted him in French, and he muttered that the only French he knew was in high school about "a hundred years ago". (I believe him.). I won't labor on and on, but it went downhill from then on. The service was terrible (waited over an hour before we were served a simple salad and crepe), he was incredibly rude, seemed to be utterly disgusted that we were bothering him. The other waitress was the only one actually hustling about doing her work, but seemed also to be mad and disgusted. And we can't forget listening to all the arguing the was coming from the kitchen. The food was okay, but certainly not worth the agony.
