I love this restaurant. I'm a sucker for a good restaurant and also has a retail store that's delightful. We went for brunch and sat outside - warm sun - delicious food - fun atmosphere. I'll be back.

Good food, friendly servers and fast service. I visited a few weeks ago but as far as I remember everyone on staff had a French accent. Parking is always a concern when visiting Newport Beach but this time it was ok.
