Bottom line: Dependable French food 24 hours a day with a small, yet scrumptious, brunch offering
The two eggs 'any way' dish was perfect. The eggs were so light and fluffy that they looked like an extra egg was thrown in there. A slight buttery taste, but not overwhelming at all. The potatoes were good, average potatoes. The bacon was too greasy and fatty for my taste, but somehow I ate it anyway (the curse of bacon)!
Love the bottomless iced coffee - you don't get that everywhere for some reason.
There are always beautiful fresh flowers on the bar and throughout the restaurant, and on numerous occasions I've seen the florist(?) come and delicately arrange the bouquet... it's an art!
The service is good, a little slow even on quieter days, but maybe that's the European flair. Along those lines, you will not be rushed to finish your meal and pay your bill, so take your time and relax.
