Chocolate cakes to die for. They used to be really good, but there were a few times that we've gone back where the cakes are not as good as we remember it, but they are still good.

Came here in the afternoon for coffee fix, only average espresso based drinks. The cakes we had were good, but can be a bit more moist.

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
