    Best croque Madame I've had in a while. Also get a big cozy cup of cafe au lait.

    Hot date spot. The little garden is a total hidden gem in the neighborhood.

    Francophiles swear by the understated takes on traditional french fare, from breakfast crepes and simple salads to herbed mussel pots.

    Tuesday all you can eat muscles and fries. Beer is expensive but the food is worth it. The pâté was delicious as well.

    Vegetarian Gamin is wonderful (great for glutoids like me) with an iced Americano. Actually, I LOVE this place.

    Paid 20 for a 16 check, wasn't returned money. Slow service. Too bad, because the food is delicious.

    Like other tips here, agreed the food is very good. My only quibble is that for glass of wine, the pour seems a bit on the small side.

    In business nearly 10 years, this French bistro is not to be passed. Classic comfort food, daily seafood and pasta specials, and cups of cafe au lait is why you should come here immediately.

    Get a crêpe complete. It's on the brunch menu but available anytime. For the full experience, ask for maple syrup on the side.
