“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Went with several people and everyone enjoyed the food. The problem comes with trying to
get out in a timely manner. Much of the staff was from Central America & had difficulty with language and check out. Allow 15 minutes extra to get out.

“Taste of Europe, in the USA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Stopped here for lunch while visiting friends near DC. Lovely ambience, excellent food and good coffee. Good value and we would definitely go back when we're in the area again.

“It's good”

It was really good, the decoration there and everything was good. You feel like you are in France, but the food that I ordered was okay.

“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

I love breakfast and this place is great for a quick, reasonably priced breakfast that is beyond the usual suspects (Panera, Au Bon Pain, Cosi).
