The food at the French Valley Cafe is very good and so is the service. During the day you can watch planes take off and land. Some nights there is karaoke which is fun.

The French Valley Cafe at French Valley airport is much better than most airport restaurants. The variety and quality of the food is definitely above-par, plus they have a full bar! I highly recommend their breakfast service and don't miss out on their great bloody Marys. Whether you fly in, or drive in, the French Valley Cafe will not disappoint!

My wife & enjoyed a late breakfast midday, midweek here while a couple of WWII planes were on exhibit a few weeks back. We liked it well enough to suggest a late lunch with our daughter's family on Mother's Day. They arrived around 1:30 to find about an hour's wait. They found a nearby facility with a lesser wait.

We are lunch there after a special event. The restaurant was fairly busy, but there were at least 4 waitresses working. They were very pleasant. Our drinks were served promptly. The sandwiches were tasty. The restaurant was clean. It was fun watching the planes. We'll be back.

Flew in with a friend for a quick lunch. This was our first time landing at this airport, and we weren't sure what to expect, as small airport dining can be a bit uncertain. Wow! This place could be our new favorite. Great menu, fast friendly service, reasonable prices. What more could you as for.

French Valley Cafe was recommended by a friend for the good food, aviation themes throughout the restaurant and the outside airport activity. I was not disappointed. There is an outside dining area as well, but as it was extremely warm on the day we visited, so we elected to dine indoors. The food was excellent, and the airport activity kept... More

The experience could've been great but the service was slow and the food was less than satisfactory. The location has potential to be a really great place unfortunately Management doesn't step up to the plate and make it happen.
