Stopped in upon a recommendation, which means somebody really enjoys this place. I ordered the French Onion Soup to start and it was really, really bland. Added quite a bit of salt and pepper. The floating bread was soggy and the cheese was minimal. I also got a sandwich with various meats, bacon, and cheese. It was well-prepared and the... More

My husband and I have been eating here for a long time. My husband was the one who first discovered it. The couple who run this restaurant are always so friendly and greet everyone as they enter and thank them when they leave. I love the croissants! My husband prefers the French bread. The sandwiches are so good! I love... More

Never had a tofu sandwich before. It was so delicious. The owner and his wife are so nice. Clean and lovely place to eat for lunch.

We went for lunch before the movies. Small, 15 tables, fills up quickly, worth every bite! Homemade bread and the sandwiches with a Vietnamese touch. Our group had the Veggie sandwich, roast beef, chicken salad with their honey Dijon vinaigrette, ham and cheese very yummy and tasty. Soup, French Onion or asparagus shrimp that day. You get soup or chips... More

Tucked away in a little strip mall is French Sandwiches, easily the best sandwich's I have had... Each sandwich is offered either on French bread or a croissant and your choice of a soup (French onion... yum!) or salad and a cream puff. My default is the fried tofu, but I recently had a croissant with cheese and was amazed... More

These sandwhiches were amazing. We never knew something as simple as a sandwich could be so good. Their homemade soup was delicious and the meal comes with a little dessert to complete it. The people were nice and very friendly. A Big Bang for your buck!!

I've been eating here for at least 15 years and I've NEVER had a bad experience. How many places can you say that about?? Yes, VERY busy for lunch and they're closed by 3 PM. They make their own pates, soups and roast their own meats. The asparagus shrimp soup is light and flavorful as is the French onion soup.... More

Since the late 90's, my family and I have been going to French Sandwiches for French style Vietnamese sandwiches. Many people prefer the banh mi but I'm of big fan of the S12. It's a tofu sandwich with grilled onions, swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce, cilantro on french bread. It's absolutely amazing. I usually compliment that with the french onion soup... More

This Restaurant was located conveniently close to medical center , was very clean , served fresh & tasty grilled chicken ( complete meal around $ 6) . They also offered us a senior citizen discount which was great. The rice & salsa was good. The tortillas soggy( microwaved) . The tables were clean and we'll supplied.
