La Cuisine is a gem - in a perhaps somewhat non-descript shell is one great restaurant. Once you enter, you immediately know you've come to the right place - warm, inviting, pleasant surroundings.

The wait staff is competent without being overbearing - the seating arrangements are comfortable - you know there are others around, but are you are not crowded in.

But, it's the food that really sets La Cuisine apart. High quality ingredients - many of which are locally sourced. Generous portions without being overblown, servings are attractively plated and served at the right temperature. BTW - their coffee is from a local roaster and is worth the trip alone.

We recently enjoyed fresh bagels, lox, capers, tomatoes, onions, and cream cheese - a not uncommon dish, but prepared beautifully and it tasted way above average.

We've eaten here for both breakfast and brunch, but not lunch, so can't comment there. But, as a breakfast aficionado, I heartily recommend La Cuisine. There is a very obvious effort on the part of the waiters, the chefs, and the management to ensure that you enjoy your meal - a not so common feeling in other locales.

Oh - their Take-Out selections are worthy, as well - make sure to grab some of their homemade granola on the way out.

What a treat!!! Fresh and clean food, A friendly atmosphere with delicious treats. There hash is to die for. My wife's egg caramelized onions spinach and tomato was delicious. My Belgian waffles delightful and tasty. Good coffee as well. Friendly service at a decent price and they even sent me away with a bunch of cookies for my birthday. I highly recommend this place and will tell others.

Our friends invited us for brunch here--our first time. It's a nice little spot I've driven past many times. Very unassuming from the outside. Inside is a take out counter and a small cafe area with informal tables and chairs. Simple! Friendly service, lots of options on the menu. My dish, the corned beef hash with eggs was very good--large portion! On the other hand my friend ordered a special breakfast sandwich which was disappointing (not in taste, but in portion--very small). We'd try it again!

Stopped here on the way home from Boston on a local's recommendation. Every single thing we ordered was perfect. Great atmosphere and friendly, fast service. Wish I lived closer; I'd be here all the time.
