Once upon a time this was a not so bad French style bakery. It still isn't bad --- just not authentic or particularly great. It is to French what Boyardee is to Italian or Taco Bell is to Mexican. Not authentic, great or, in this case, not cheap. Today some of the venues seem poorly ventilated and tend to smell... More

Good place to grab food at any time. My favorite dish is the Mushroom Soup. It is creamy, full of mushrooms and very tasty. Their Cafe offer is good, a coup of soup, half a quiche and a salad for $9.95.

"I love French food that's fresh, hand made & quick! The salads are created in front of you - 'a little more strawberries bacon mushrooms please ???' (no extra charge!!!). The quiche is perfecto mundo. The tomato basil soup can be purchased to go but the atmosphere doesn't come with it... Did you know they do breakfast? And it's superb.... More

The croque monsieur was good as well..Service was good, people were polite.. However please tell your employees it is not ok for them to play trash can basketball... More

Much as one can say that one establishment is the same as the rest, I have to say the service at this site was much better than some others I could mention. Last weekend I went to one on Westheimer, was a travesty of misery. Gray street were alive and alert to my custom. The food is much the same... More

After being disappointed with a nearby restaurant's offerings, we walked to this establishment, not wanting to get back on the packed road. What a nice surprise! The service was friendly and helpful, and as a vegetarian, I appreciated all the wonderful options. The white bean soup was delicious, and there was even fresh sourdough bread with real butter for the... More

Great desserts! I went in after breakfast and got 3 desserts to go. The lemon muffin was amazing. The other two items I got were good also. Easy to find, easy to park and easy to order from here. Will return.
