The atmosphere is quaint with a French Cafe feel. It is my go to place for a sandwich, a crepe, or for something sweet.

Good was first rate! Service was mediocre but for us, the food made up for it. I am gluten-free but found a crepe made with buckwheat and got a crepe sandwich with excellent roast beef and Swiss.

The food here is delicious. It is mostly sandwiches and some soup. The dessert crepes look incredible! I didn't get one, but my friend did and said it was good.

My wife and I love crepes so we stopped by, for breakfast, while passing through. We were not disappointed. The crepes were fantastic and the egg, ham, and cheese on the French baguette was unbelievable. The bread was so fresh.

Always delicious! I've introduced several friends to crepes and everyone comes away loving them from French Market. My teens both love it too - especially the Nutella-Strawberry crepes!
