    This is one of my absolute favorite places for a romantic dinner. Go for the classics: steak frites, sole or fish special, seafood or charcuterie, onion soup. Like being in Paris. Great cocktails too.

    This busy bistro is a Carytown staple. Sit by the window for some of the best people watching or sit at the bar for happy hour specials including half-price oysters, shrimp and burgers from 5 to 7pm.

    How do you make a grilled ham and gruyere sandwich, covered in creamy béchamel sauce, even more comforting and rich? You put a fried egg on top and call a croque madame.

    One can not go wrong, for this place has figured out how to make everything you order one of a kind. It will make you want to come back and try it all.

    If you eat at the bar, there is a great $5 burger special which comes with a huge side of fries (best in Richmond).You can also wear the top half of the bun as a beret while you sing frere jacques.

    Their cinnamon roll is crisp, buttery, flaky, and less sweet; reminiscent of their croissants. Pair it with one of their rich hot chocolates!

    Flirt with a hot young professional at the massive marble bar. Housed in a remodeled wedding dress shop, Can Can serves up dishes ranging from the casual to formal—try the moules et frites! Read more

    If you're a pair, don't trouble yourself with reservations. Grab a seat at the bar and order a Sazerac. One of the best in town.

    The squash crepe was light and flavorful. You can buy their specialty fruit breads for $6 a loaf! Great service too!

    Hot chocolate is definitely recommended. Right in the heart of Carytown, beautiful scene, I also recommend sitting outside.

    Step into a little Paris cafe right here in Richmond! Nice wine list, excellent coffee and breads, LOVELY atmosphere!

    Stay away from the pecan crepe. Crammed full of lemon curd with punctuations of goat cheese make this crepe sour to the taste. The lemon overpowers any other taste the crepe could have offered.

    Best croissants in town. You can choose from chocolate, almond & butter. Get there at 7am, when they are fresh out of the oven. Go on Mondays for $5 French wine by the glass.
