French cuisine, specialty coffees, wines and pastries are available at this chain eatery. – In Short
Hardwood floors, tables and chairs scattered in front of a fireplace; the decor is reminiscent of a French countryside cottage. Orders are placed at the front counter and brought to the table. Full breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are available; however, patrons are invited to come just for a glass of wine or cup of coffee. No meal would be complete without trying the strawberries Romanoff--fresh strawberries topped with brandy cream sauce.
Nothing French about it but price – This caffe has been one of the places that I kept visiting over the years.
It used to be great place to go for tiramisu or some other pastries, right now their prices have become increasingly scary (close to $3 for eclaire?) and the quality of pastries has gone down considerable. I only go for the palmiers (still pretty good) and a few other thing like scones. There were crepes with romanoff sauces and other assortments, right now all you get is chocolate and Hershey chocolate at best.
The sandwiches are OK but everything on the hot counter is recycled for the next day. Their staff make probably the worst esspresso, cappucino or any other specialty coffee - stick to the french roast percolated, you won't regret it.
