Your meal will do you like to you. The menu is not expansive but it doesn't need to be. Creative recipes tantalize your taste buds. Service is attentive. Best to make reservations because the restaurant is not large. It is adjacent to the local Dairy...More

Creative (but not fussy) cooking with fresh ingredients and wonderful favors. Lots of good choices, the fish is amazing and the presentation of the meals is beautiful.

La Belle Aurore is a gem. Don't be put off by its location. It's masked -- actually squeezed -- between a Dairy Queen and a dry cleaning store. The menu changes almost daily in concert with the produce and harvest the restaurant obtains from local...More

Unfortunately, they do not take brunch reservations. But call and ask Dawn the time your party will be quickly seated. Do tell her [the owner/chef] the occasion. I observe her as a considerate and kind person as well as a... More
