The lunch special was perfect!! Half sandwich, soup, and house wine was an excellent deal! The space is French and quaint, the food was delicious, and the service friendly. They don't except tips, so this review is the only way to say thanks!!

We were hungry but had diner reservations later in the evening. Stopped in to grab a quick snack. They serve their breakfast menu all day, so we had a plate of meat, cheese, and fruit. The baguette was excellent and fresh, the water chilled perfectly,...More
