    Croque Madame and the charcuterie are two of my favorites at this location. The dishes are authentic French. Many other great dishes here. The cocktail program is pretty solid as well.

    One of my favorite places in Seattle. Authentic, French, can't beat the atmosphere. Try any of their dishes, ask for a glass of wine and you won't be disappointed.

    Lovely and hip French bistro with great atmosphere & even better food. Try the Croque Madame, the brioche (if they aren't sold out) and the Cold Chicken with Mayo. Always easy, good and fun.

    Open 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. with breakfast, lunch and dinner served the majority of those open hours. Drool worthy are the croque madame, salade verte, French onion soup, sardine sandwich, steak frites.

    Love this cute little French spot! Croque Madame was fantastic but heavy. Also HIGHLY recommend the pork rillete! Amazing flavors with a nice layer of lard and only $6!

    If a track-jacketed fan of Le Football felt lost outside of Paris he or she may find comfort at Cafe Presse near Seattle U. This urban sports bar offers moules, frites, poulet, televised matches. Rah! Read more

    While I love the cappuccinos they make next door at Stumptown, the whole lure of a French restaurant is too much to resist. Go and eat the Croque Monsieur and get the fries AND kumquat salad.

    Had the Croque-madame and pain au chocolat... Affordable and absolutely scrumptious. Cafe Presse is always a good go-to.

    The drinks and espresso are excellent. The whole roasted chicken is definitely worth the wait. I dare you to not consume the bread they provide (yummy)!

    Heard about the Croquet Madame and just had to try it. O.M.G. It was so yummy and delicious. There are so many other things I will need to try on this menu!

    They play live European soccer matches! Schedule is on the board inside. Croque Madame and classic omelet are both solid choices.

    The steak tartare is the best in the city. Period. When it's not on the menu in winter months, the onion soup is fabulous.

    The raclette is really good but it would be better to have more cheese and a real raclette machine. The charcuterie is delicious

    Doesn't get any better than a traditional croque monsieur (or madame) and some chilled piquepoul, at least not in my book. The lavender sorbet is divine too
  • Trophy Cupcakes a.
    The Croque Madame is one of the best in the city and the cold chicken with mayo and potato salad is simple and incredible.

    Very pet friendly for outdoor seating. We love to take our puppy with us while we enjoy a latte and watch people go by.

    Start with the chicken liver pate. The fish is always a good entree choice but everything else on the menu is delicious as well.

    The whole bird is a triumph of moist flesh and brittle skin. Roasted to order and split for two, it's well worth the hour wait. Read more

    The food is sometimes worth the snooty attitude, but if you're wanting to be treated nicely too, your best bet is to sit in the back.

    order the Croque a la Justin - an extra egg on the side, then slap that bitch right in the middle and go to town. Delicious.

    Simple, French, and an intimate breakfast date place. Try the Oeuf Plats, Jambon, fromage dish
