I lucked out and found this place at 10am. I ordered a croissant with melted cheese and two eggs over easy. It was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Great service, nice people.

If you charge $5 per cappuccino, at the very least you are expected to serve a delicious cup of coffee in a normal mug. A typical tourist trap where everything is expensive just because of French words in the title, not because of quality.
