    Cute cafe with good service and reliable food. The brunch is amazing due to the eggs Florentine and $15 all-you-can drink champagne carafes. The French servers and bartenders are so welcoming.

    The menu waxes classic with traditional frog feed like frisee salad with lardons, steak tartare, grilled hangar steak, moules aux poivres, popovers, and all manner of crepes savory and sweet.

    I'm perplexed why this place is not more popular- it's spacious, airy, romantic, super cheap, and delicious! Don't miss the seafood crepe and the gratin dauphinois!

    Can't stop going back for the food and mango sangria. Oh! And their beer selection is amazing if you enjoy European beers.

    Fantastic pre fix brunch menu! How can you go wrong with 3 mimosas or beer to accompany your meal?

    The coq au vin is delicious, albeit a little salty. But the shell steak - ridiculously good

    127 mussels down, could still keep going but the waitress is too nice to startle further. Needless to say, all-you-can-eat here is A+ and $12
