    Their open faced sandwiches and french press are what draw me in.

    Fun place for a relaxed and inexpensive lunch. Communal tables allow for chatting with other diners if that's your thing. Plan on waiting for seats as this place is tiny.

    You can't go wrong with the soup du jour. Wash it down with the hibiscus punch! Especially If it's hot out.

    Try the Croq Baguette with both turkey & ham, and have a side up of French onion soup. You won't be disappointed. Also great ice tea - very herbal and delicious.

    The food was not that great. The broccoli and chicken soup was bland, but the ham and brie croissant was pretty good. Service was terrible.

    Known as 'Fast & French' this small bistro is very popular by locals and always busy. Watch out for the nightly special that includes bread, soup, a main dish and wine.
