    The falafel salad was super tasty. Savory falafel served over a melon salad with a light vinaigrette, great way to start a nice day. Note: if you want the quiche, they only serve it after 11:30am. :(

    The menu is authentic French and excellent. A pity they serve San Pellegrino instead of Perrier or Badoit. Nobody speaks French in this place. Don’t try to pay with American Express.
