Went in for a business lunch. The owner seemed confused that I was there. Didn't offer me anything. I had to ask for a table. I sat down and waited for my guests. Nobody offered me coffee, so I asked if I had to help...More

Food is good but I expected a little more from this place. The lattes were mostly milk and although the baguette was good, I've had better. There are a few tables inside and some seating outside. They take reservations for brunch which is a plus....More

Very special venue that is a shop and a restaurant. You can enjoy the brunch while others browse for treasures from Provence and unique delicacies by Francois. Great service, quality food and unique setting.

We visited twice this week, having a pleasant breakfast experience both times. The "Brewed Coffee" is fresh and flavourful, no need for the pricey alternatives. The weekend cheese pastries are a recommended high point. Our itemised bill, available upon request, was accurate.

Excellent breakfast. The eggs were perfect served with fresh fruit and crispy cubed potatoes. Try their delicious French crepes, satisfying and well balanced meals. Best place to eat in the Hillsboro area in Ottawa.
