Having been to Paris I loved the ambience of this restaurant. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. I recommend outdoor seating as it faces a park and really feels like a French bistro. Menu has classic favorites like eggs, French toast, pancakes and crepes except they are prepared a bit too fancy for our tastes. Instead of regular French toast... More

My family is from Hilton Head and we frequent the island often and know most of the ins and outs. This place is a 5 star plus. Their mimosas are made with fresh squeezed orange juice and their crapes are so fresh. We eat here every morning while we are in town because my wife loves it so much.

Bustling, delicious bakery treats for breakfast or more. Seating in or out. Quite pricey, tho, so we don't go there as a habit

Have been here in years past and love the food, ambience of setting outside, and location with view of the beautiful park and broad creek, and friendly staff service. This time, however, those same features prevailed... More

My husband and i visited for a breakfast. I had mocha coffee and it was a very generous cup. Very good coffee. I had the classic strawberry crepes which had strawberries and Nutella and cream--amazing treat!Husband had the berry crepes which he said was good. I would definitely go back. Nice restaurant and bakery was amazing! Worth going to!

For the most part food here is really great...quick fresh ingredients done well but I've been ordering from here for a little while now and they aren't always consistent and I've noticed a dip in quality
