This is a crown jewel in the middle of the Siesta Key village. Super fresh and outstanding flavor.

My wife had their croque monsieur with an included small salad. The croque monsieur was rich and savory. Every bite melted in your mouth. The small side salad had a very light tasting mustard based dressing which complimented all the flavor on the plate.

I had an incredibly fresh and flavorful crepe haricot which also came with the same fresh side salad and dressing. I am not a fan of buckwheat crepes so I went with white. This is flat out one of the best crepes I have ever had. Just such a rich and flavorful taste, but yet not too heavy. Just a perfect balance.

My wife and I absolutely love fruit tarts and we noticed in their small display case they had freshly made blueberry and strawberry fruit tarts. We ordered both and split them. The tarts were creamy and light with a perfect crust and the fruit was at peak ripeness. My wife and I agreed they were some of the finest fresh fruit tarts we have ever had.

The atmosphere is open and airy with windows open yet the air conditioning was still on. This made for a perfect blend of beach breezes coming in, but the air conditioning kept the temperature perfect. The inside is very bright, welcoming and European. The owner is very friendly as well as her staff.

I can't stress enough how refreshing a bistro like this is in Sarasota which is a city with a sea of chain restaurants. If you want something fresh, healthy and full of flavor served with a smile I cannot recommend Bonjour French Cafe enough.

Now go get your French on!

French/American Breakfast, very tasty, though not for big appetites. Charging $2.25 extra for 2 slices of toast??? Ehh-Not cool!

We decided to try Bonjour French Cafe and Crepes and we are so glad we did. It is a very quaint space. We ate upstairs and could watch the food being prepared from up there. I had the crepes and they were soooo good.

The selfish part of me would like it to be like Paris and have a "crepe happy hour"! They are so delicious.

Always looked busy when we passed do thought we should give it a try for breakfast. I had the French American, which consisited of two eggs, a cheese crepe, bacon and a fresh fruit cup.
Only one word to describe it, superb. The crepe in particular was to die for. The French sever was very nice and attentive but not over bearing. No wonder it has so many excellent reviews.
