we have visited Cafe Maspero on a regular basis for years now. The red beans are excellent, and we've always received great service. Get a seat by the window and watch the people in the square while you enjoy ice tea and good food.

The restaurant is in a good location but the food itself was fairly basic although the quantities and the prices were OK and the service was fine.

After walking a lot in humid weather, we stopped in for a beer. Having seen others what they were eating, we decided to eat here also. The food was good for the price and the service was very good.

This restaurant was just up the street from our hotel so we stopped for breakfast one day. We both ordered Eggs Benedict. It was good but instead of an English Muffin they used a large biscuit. There was not enough sauce so the whole thing...More

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
