We went on a weekday morning. No wait and sat outside on a perfect day. The food was very French. Excellent omelettes. But, the croissants were prefect. Just out of the oven and just like those served a good street cafes' in France. Made me long to visit France soon. Excellent little gem.

Smallish french restaurant. Had breakfast and the baked items were delicious. Staff is extremely friendly! Only drawback is the food is so good and such good quality that it is busy and service can be a bit slow. We went twice!

Authentic Parisian cafe. Delicious brunch. Eggs Benedict and waffles were excellent. Cappuccino and Espresso were perfect. The atmosphere is cheery and the owners are on site and super friendly. Palm Springs is luck to have a place like this!

We stopped for lunch and were delightfully pleased with our meal. Salade Nicoise, menu suggested adding the white anchovies which were very tasty, and indeed they were. Excellent coffee as dark and strong as it should be rounded out our meal. Would definitely go again.

This was absolutely the best meal I had on my trip to Palm Springs. The service was above and beyond other restaurants I've been to. The servers were very polite, attentive, and prompt. I ate breakfast here and was absolutely impressed with the ingredients and overall taste. I was just in Paris two months prior, and this definitely met my... More

Super casual, no frills. I love the place but I am ridiculously attracted to anything French so I have a bias. I have the chèvre sandwich and it was delicious and I also had a glass of their Chardonnay. Interestingly, the waiter did not know the name of the winery but he was sure it was from France. It was...

Yum! The charcuterie plate was good. Really enjoyed the quiche as well. The owners were at the restaurant and provided great service. It's a small cafe. Good place for breakfast. The only inconvenient part is that they don't have a bathroom in the cafe.

If you really want some real French menu for Breakfast and near this area , I will suggest surely give this a try. We were not sure if want to go there but took a chance and have to say that it was disappointing. We were party of 7 and were lucky to get seated outside. This place doesn't have... More

We visited this French cafe yesterday, it was simply lovely. We waited in line to be seated but it was at lunch time so not unexpected. The food was amazing, the cafe latte and cappuccino were better than those we had in France, and the gracious owner Charlotte whipped me up a mimosa with freshly squeezed orange juice in the...

Be aware that everything is ala carte. We were asked if we wanted fruit or fries with our breakfast entrees. Both were good but we were not expecting the extra charges. Three are very few tables, either inside or out, so expect to wait. The staff was very friendly and didn't rush us.
