“meat slapped on a bun”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

i was so excited to try a new york deli. and came across this, thinking
its would be the french version of New York's famous deli's.
I was so wrong-ordered the ham and cheese, it was
literally ham, and cheese. one slice each between 2 dry pieces of bread
with a pickle on the side.
whhaaaaatttt you saying?
my 2 yr old niece could of done a better job.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

It reminds me of a cafe bistro in Europe. Decent pastries, bread ok. I need to go back for lunch and try their menu, but so far I was impressed positively.

“Perfect Place to Dodge the Snow”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Dropped in to get out of the snow with our two young boys. The awesome bakery smell was great. Staff was nice and service was quick. All organic and french, not my thing, but it could be now!

“Dependable Service and Tasty Food”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Many tasty breakfasts and lunches, great breads, and coffee. As far as sweets, there's an apricot or lemon tart that are divine. Big chocolate chip cookie is yummy, if you like the crunchy kind. Mostly good service unless it's busy. Consistent, nourishing salads and sandwiches.

“Bio Food worth a try”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

First seating is terrible on rush hours...they dont serve dinner..only breakfast and lunch. There are several of these restaurants throughout the States and also in New York...we went to the New York location on 50th Street ..Food is good. Once you are seated service is quick and efficient. Try out the Apple Cider (warm or cold) very very good! They have a sort of menu of the day, plus of course a full menu. Very convenient in price, atmosphere is social, there are some tables where you are seated with other people...as said its worth a try!
