A totally delightful experience! The wait staff is fast and friendly, and the food fantastic! This beautiful little gem is reminiscent of a café you might chance to stop at on the Champs Elysees, to munch on a croissant or crepe whilst listening to Edith Piaf croon.There's indoor/outdoor seating and a marvelous little fountain and courtyard in the back. Inside, you'll find a variety of collectibles and antiques for sale.

We sampled the nova sandwich on French bread, with sour cream and chives. Everything was fresh and tasty.
Highly recommended! more>
