“Excellent food, but desserts are even better!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is a great place to go for lunch, dinner, dates, etc. They have a fairly good selection of foods that are resonably priced. But save room for dessert, because this is the highlight of Phillips European! Their desserts are scrumptious, we have never been disappointed. The only problem is that there is too much delicious food to choose from!

“Nice, sunny place for lunch.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stopped here today for lunch with my sister. We had the chicken French over angel hair pasta and loved it. The atmosphere is bright and sunny and it's quiet enough to have a nice conversation without having to talk over the table next to you. We finished our lunch with one of their delicious, decadent desserts. There are many to choose from and all looked so wonderful! This is a great place for lunch and we will be coming back.

“Great for dessert after kids band or chorus performance.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

I always think I know what I want, then the display of other things makes me ponder other choices. Very nice variety and you can ask for 2 halfs of different torts if you can't make up your mind. The chocolate martini is very good.

“LOVE IT”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We found this place by accident three years ago and could not believe what we seen and ate. The pastries are simply AWESOME and the steak just melts in your mouth. We started a new tradition since then in that every year we come here for our family Christmas dinner. It's nice and quiet, the service is great, and boy do they know what they are doing. Go, visit, enjoy and thank me later for telling you how good it is here. You will love it.

“Don't skip dessert!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

One of my favorite places to bring clients or host business lunches. Good assortment of salads, crepes, quiche, and sandwiches. Save room for dessert though...the cakes and tortes are wonderful!
