“Great lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

After hearing so much about WC&B, a friend and I popped in for lunch last week. It's a very charming little spot with a definite Parisian feel. The croque monsieur was the decadent sandwich you would hope it to be - warm, gooey with cheese and bechamel, and on delicious bread. My friend had the seared tuna sandwich, and really enjoyed that as well. I substituted the traditional side for the spaetzle. Having lived in Bavaria, this wasn't "true" spaetzle, as it was a little more pan-fried than it should have been. However, it was a passable substitute, and still tasted good.

Also of note, they have some talented bartenders. We ordered "something interesting and good" and he created one of the best cocktails I have had in awhile. I definitely recommend dining here!

“Great find in Westport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

We checked the Cafe out after a recommendation from a friend. We found the atmosphere to seem less like Kansas City and more NYC (except for the lack of very close together tables). The menu was well thought out and served all of our French favorites. The drink selections were plentiful and the portions were generous. The service was prompt and efficient. I have been there 2 times-once with my wife and once with my daughter. They both enjoyed it very much. I would highly recommend the Cafe.

“A Gem in Westport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012 via mobile

The menu looked good--French influences and lots of seafood choices--so on a Friday night in lent, we gave it a chance. Good choice. It has an easygoing vibe in a great Westport location, close to the Plaza. We opened with excellent fresh shrimp and oysters. The curried carrot soup is a marvel, and the char was superb. Great drink list, and interesting wine. Trust the waitstaff; they are friendly and knowledgable. We will be back.

“OMG the mussels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

What a wonderful cafe!. My husband and I - with another couple - found this cafe on a Saturday after lunch. Menu has lunch and brunch and wonderful selections: Tuna Nicoise, Poached eggs with smoked salmon - and the mussels. We ordered the mussels from the appitizer selection and the serving fed 2 of us. And the very, very pleasant server asked if we could try a cup of the evening's soup which the chef sent out to us - hmmmm roasted fennel. We definately will be going back many times and want to try it for dinner. Wish parking was easier, but hey - worth the search.
