Although it's informal, the food is outstanding. Portions are reasonable. Granddaughter had 'the usual' - Croque Monsieur. I had a small salad. Topped it off by sharing a meringue cookie.

The ham croissant was simply presented and the mustard offerings were perfect. The gazpacho soup was delicious The flavors were a French masterpiece that I enjoyed down to the crumbs and bottom of the bowl. We will be back. Merci

THE BEST coffee in Charleston. Excellent breakfast or brunch options. Supper is done well too. Imported beer, different flavored water and tea. Great for small groups. Go here now!

What a surprise! Charmingly set in a very old building, his "fast French" restaurant was reasonably priced, and served absolutely delicious food. The service was not terribly helpful in response to our many questions, but no tipping was allowed, so there was no motivation to...More
