Try everything - all is delicious. Fantastic breakfast, delicious salads, crusty bread, nice coffees and a especially good atmosphere to hang around all day. Very good service too. When you leave the bistro after hours, don't forget to buy a baguette for the road ;-).

A lovely French bakery offering authentic tartes, croissants, and baguettes. It is usually very busy so we haven't eaten in the café, but stopped by numerous times to take things to go. The baguette sandwiches with vinaigrette are especially tasty. They have another outpost in...More
