    A good brunch spot. Unpretentious, if a little overdecorated. The French toast is a little too decadent. I recommend sharing.

    Solid dinner even better desserts. Also a pretty seating/garden area out front. In spite of the name I would not really call this a French restaurant.

    Very friendly and salads are great.

    The place REALLY needs to invest in some soundproofing. I'm a young guy and it was just too damn loud to talk to my dining partners. Parking is tight, bring a small car!

  • Sebastian R.

    The crème brulé French toast and chicken and waffles are delicious. Their "South of the Border" dishes are so-so. When it gets busy there is some lag in the service so be direct with your needs.

    Sebastian Rivas · January 17, 2015
  • Brian M.

    Creme brulee French toast

    Brian Matthews · January 10, 2015

    Over priced & uninspired food but safe & dependable. Free croissants (dry) with strawberry butter (good). Gluten free menu available. 2 GF pancakes (medium) $6.95. Sides extra.

    Very festive during the holidays with all the twinkly white lights. Live music (pianist).

    The "loaded kettle chips" are NOT worth it. Watery dressing, bacon leftover bits. Quite meh.

    On Sunday, make reservations for brunch for 10 am or later, no alcohol is served before that hour, and you might want to try the bloody Mary's or mimosas

    Bring cash, the valet is free, but do tip. The creme brulee french toast and breakfast in bread french toast were both excellent. They also give you a croissant and strawberry butter before the meal!

    This place is absolutely adorable! They change their decorations every season, so it always feels new. Their bottomless coffee is delicious. Also, the croissants with strawberry butter are to die for!
