We came to Cafe Selmarie for breakfast and we both had the corned beef hash topped with poached eggs. The corned beef looked hand cut with large pieces that were nicely crisped. Very good and very satisfying!

I've been here many times meeting friends and lingering over wine, dinner, and dessert. The food is always delicious and the bakery is outstanding. The staff has always been kind and helpful with suggestions. It's such a cozy place to hang out.

Decent espresso cafe. A small variety of pastries, croissants, pies and cakes. Good, not great. Also offers lunch and beer, which we didn't get to try. Has a nice set of outdoor tables overlooking a stone walking area. Very pleasant for the outdoor season.

A fine small place with delicious food and a nice wine selection. Had Chicken Pot Pie that was delightfully light and suited the warm evening well. The black bean and corn soup had little flavor. Lucky for me I did not have much of it....More
