Today Pam and I took her Sister Pat to La Cuisine for brunch. I love the Escargot which I have everytime I go. We all had a version of Eggs Benedict, I had the more traditional version, english muffin, fresh spinach, pork belly and a perfectly cooked poached egg and a wonderful fresh Hollandaise Sauce, and delicious potatoes. Pam and Pat had Gluten
Free Eggs Benedict, with the poached egg over the pork belly and potatoes. with the Hollandaise sauce on the side.

We all had the bottomless Mimosas, and to finish off the meal Pam and Pat shared the Cream Brulee and I have a Sweet Crepe with fresh strawberries, and a wonderful strawberry sauce. I finished my meal with a wonderful rich cup of coffee. We left thinking about when we will return.

Patrice checked on everytable at least twice and the servers where all sharply dressed and very attentive.

NEWS FLASH, while talking to Patrice (Chef/Owner) told us of plans to add a sidewalk cafe area on the south side of the building this summer.

My daughter,sister and I went on Sunday for brunch. My sister had the quiche and a salad, I had the French Toast with seasonal berries, while my daughter had two eggs over crisp bacon belly with roasted potatoes. Everything was delicious! We had an amazing waiter named Josh. It was a delicious brunch and would love to go back.

We made reservations and had a wonderful quiet table in the back room. Dinner was fabulous, I had special rack of lamb perfectly prepared and nicely presented. Others had the filet minion which melted in your mouth. Oh and the French onion soup is terrific.

My friend and both ate at this restaurant for lunch. The restaurant is small with fixed hours of service, and extremely clean. We arrived about 30 minutes after opening and the service help were pleasant and immediately seated up. The lunch menu was limited in my opinion but not and issue for us. After ordering which both of us had the vegetable quiche with additional side of veggies and french bread was at the table within 15 minutes. The selection of French wines and various other libations was tops.I would say the food quality was exceptional, and deserts at the same level of satisfaction.
