Cafe du Jour does not advertise, yet they are always busy because the food is delicious, fresh and prepared with loving care. Paul the owner is very hands on in this little intimate cafe. The kitchen is open to the room. In the colder weather the room collects the wonderful aromas of the cooking food. In the summer it is... More

Excellent food and service. Reminds me of a quaint European café with even better food. Locally made dessert was a real treat. Steaks done perfectly

We always take visitors to Pittsburgh here because the food is always so great, yet varied. You can see him at work right near the window. Kind of amazing what they produce out of a space smaller than most home kitchens. It's small inside, but in nice months, you can have dinner on the patio in the back, which is... More

Wow, some really good, some ok , some missing and the mouse scampering around on the patio definitely not good. We found out after we were there awhile on Wednesday evening the restaurant was soon closing on the weekend for some needed rejuvenations. Being a birthday celebration for my daughter I let several problems and deficiencies go which a good... More

Important to know: This is a cash-only, BYOB restaurant. Be prepared. The best thing about this restaurant is the outdoor seating area; it's tiny and rustic, but it features a little grotto and pond with white lights that is utterly charming, a small oasis in an urban setting. Of course, the food is excellent. They have a small, but tasty... More

**Please be advised that this restaurant is CASH ONLY. This is also a BYOB establishment that will add a small charge to your bill for use of their glassware.** I visited Cafe du Jour with a large group for an early dinner (5pm). The restaurant itself is a tiny place with a few indoor place settings and a larger outdoor... More

I have visited this French inspired restaurant several times. The food is 5 star quality at a very reasonable price. A small intimate setting, byob and reservations required. A must for anyone looking for a great meal.

Let me start by saying we were a half hour late for our reservation because we mistakenly noted the wrong time when we made the reservation. I appreciate that this did not seem to affect our service, which was friendly and professional. Our appetizer was very good, Camembert w/apples, fig and walnuts on crostini, and my salmon and hubby's chicken... More
