Was pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of this place. Great menu items and a dining room that made you feel like you were in a café in France. Will definitely return.

Very cozy interior, superb service and although we only had appetizers and wine (both excellent), a review of the menu was enough to get us back in the near term. Recommended!

Had lunch there yesterday, on a gorgeous day and were able to sit outside and watch everyone go by. Good service. The Croque Monsieur was good but not like we've had in France. More sauce on the top than normal. Excellent fries and salad.
