    Breakfast is better than dinner but dinner is good. Omelette are straight from Paris and the profiteroles are superbe.

    Yammy breakfast. One of the best latte in the city. The size is amazing. But the pastry bad. Even in a Starbucks pastry is better.

    Bacon Cheeseburger and Duvel draft. Humm...

    The escargot are delicious, delicate and not chewy, and best of all come served in their shells, with escargot tongs and forks.

    Never been to a French café that doesn't serve baguette. But otherwise it's very French ... except the gate to China Town across Bush St.
