It must be years since I visited. The grocery isles are gone and it has more seating; a very lovely cafe. The baguette is still incredible but they no longer have the shrimp salad I remember. Now it is seafood salad with shrimp and "crab". However, though good, the crab is the surimi or fake crab sticks that are very... More

This place has some real French gems on the menu, the soups are in particular are very excellent, as is the Veal Marsala. I had a quiche also. Each dish here was better than the next. I give high praises.

I was unaware of the changes made to Bon Appetit until I walked in on a whim just yesterday. Much improved decor, more spacious, and most importantly Open. My problem with the previous hours of this place is why I stopped going a few years back. However it now seems to be under new management and with new hours of... More

More like a bakery in France where one stops to get a cheese-pate' sandwich on a baguette, but there is also soup. Wide choice of French cheeses and pates, all available for take-out with a loaf of bread too. Good pastries for dessert or to take home. Despite its strip mall location and interior, the ambiance is pleasant. You can... More

I am reading some of the "4 star reviews" in amazement. This gourmet shop used to be owned and run by Louisette. She was one of the friendliest people you will ever meet. The food was amazing and the new ownership has stepped it up to another level. The menu has been stripped down and you will notice a daily... More

Passing by here for years I never stopped because I thought it was a gourmet grocery. Today I wanted to do something different and decided to stop in and check it out. Boy was I delighted to find an extensive menu. All of the offerings are written on a chalkboard with a printed brunch menu. Everything sounded so good but... More

Food choices are always delicious and inviting, whether eating in or taking out. I appreciate that there is pantry offerings to purchase to try at home as well. Some of these items are hard to find in regular supermarkets. The desserts are not to be believed and the soups are superb; my all time favorite: carrot & ginger soup served... More

I've been going to Bon Appétit for lunch on and off for more than 10 years. One of the allures was the fact that I could practice a little of my French with the former owner, a native of France. The other reasons were the proximity to my home as well as the fresh and tasty meal selections. There was... More

After Louisette retired, the restaurant was bought by the owner or 2 nearby eateries and given a total makeover. Now it is spacious, tastefully decorated and quite different from the crowded tables and shelves of the original. I had a smoked salmon sandwich on a baguette while my husband had ham and cheese. We both had cole slaw that was... More

Stopped for lunch and both my wife and I had the 1/2 French Dip Sandwich with 1/2 cup French Onion Soup special... the soup was not very tasty and the onions were a bit undercooked in my opinion... the sandwich was just OK... we will not return except to get their fresh baked French baguettes...
