Had breakfast there every morning. Very popular place on the weekend. Great range of choice of cooked meals

This is a gem and offers a welcome change from the usual hamburger, cheese and fries so widely offered in most eating-places. There is an abundance of fresh baking, including cookies and muffins, as well as a great range of lovely fresh crepes and salads....More

A little French cafe was what we were told. It is nothing but an American cafeteria. It's like being in school with the rude lunch ladies.

This restaurant is one where you order your food as you walk down a line. They have great choices of soups salads and sandwiches. There is also a take out bakery up front where deliciousness abounds. I recommend it.

Had breakfast. Greasier than a diner. But I guess that's France. A bit overpriced for wat you get. Everything in Alexandria is overpriced, but that's OK if quality is there.

The french onion soup was just and the sandwich I had was almost inedible. Very pricey too, so skip this place with so many other options in Alexandria

The service was abysmal, from cashier to management. There was a complete lack of interest in customer service or getting our order right. The food was just average, nothing special, so I would say skip it and go to Bread and Chocolate up the street.

Excellent food. Well prepared. Desserts are especially attractive and tasty. Try the soups with a piece of quiche.

I would not recommend it given the overall layout of the restaurant. No real privacy ...
