We loved their brunch and they have great coffee. It was really busy and we didn't want to wait but they offer take-out which was really nice too. Great atmosphere.

Make sure you stop here!!! You'll want to visit there daily as their pastry case is full of amazing treats!! Love the coconut macaroons! My sister keeps saying the name of the restaurant every 5 minutes, which leads me to believe she is obsessed with it! Go see why...

As good as a french cafe in Paris - fraction of the price. For around 5 US dollars you get: omelette, potatoes, fresh squeezed OJ, hot chocolate or coffee and a quarter of one of the best baguettes I've ever had along with a homemade jam. we were staying nearby and it was always busy morning, mid day and evenings.....

Yum!! These guys do stunning french pastries, including gluten free. Its so hard to walk past without popping in for a little Petit Four (Its little right, so it doesn't count ;-) The Croque Monsieur deserves a special mention but a run will be needed after it!
