We arrived for a late breakfast on a very slow Tuesday morning. The hostess was no where to be found, so we had to ask a server if we could be seated. The server seemed to be anno...

Comfortable, good outdoor seating 8/4/2006

PLEASE NOTE: This review was meant for the French Roast location on Broadway, which can be found here: -------------------------------- This is a great place to go and hang out with friends. The menu has a small but nice selection of salads and entrees. There is a decent wine list, and a few great beers on tap. The filter coffee is good (one of the few places I think the decaf tastes ok), and in cooler weather, I love getting the cappuccino in the big bowl cups. In good weather, the seating outside is nice (although there is scaffolding right now). The waitstaff are pleasant. They are not constantly refilling water, but then again, they're also not on top of you to leave. It's also nice they are open 24 hours. I know I've used the word nice a lot, but that's most appropriate word in this case, I think. :) Beware the tables are pretty close together here, so it's best in a group of 3 or 4, where you all sit together, instead of having another couple you don't know sitting right next to you. Also, the neighborhood yuppie breeders like to force their humongous baby carriages and park them in any available space (which could be your path to the bathroom, or where you were planning on parking your right elbow). Why can't these people use strollers that fold up like everyone else? Ok, now I'm digressing... more

Perfect Plan B 3/11/2006

While this place should never be a destination, it's a good option when you're in the neighborhood and/or need somewhere relatively neutral and/or can't come up with anything better. The food is consistent and good French bistro fare. No surprises, but you wouldn't want any anyway. It can be mobbed for brunch and the late night drunk factor can be a little annoying, but that it's open 24-hours is one of its chief draws. more

Consistently good 9/25/2005

This is a good place to go if you can't come up with somewhere more adventurous or exciting. The food is always good and if you are in the mood for something like roast chicken, this is the place to go. Also, if it's nice out, it is a nice place to sit outside. And as a bonus the dessert list is long and good. more

Excellent coffee 8/7/2005

I stopped in here for an afternoon's iced coffee and sitting. The coffee was great and you get free refills on another other drinks like iced tea. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. The service is good and the prices were normal. I suggest this place if you are looking for a good drink. They also serve meals. more
