From our experiences, this French-styled café may not only be the very best breakfast eatery in Key West, it would be hard to top any place in this country. We ate breakfast here twice this past week (--and also had a great dinner there a year ago). We were fortunate the first visit to have an open-air window table, looking... More

Prices reasonable. I would definitely recommend and go back... More

A nice restaurant with great staff and very well presented food which was excellent. The savory and sweet crepes are delicious and the wine list is good too. A window seat is a nice plus to this restaurant.

This place is tough to get into. So it's good. The seafood omelette is great as well as the fish and chips, even for breakfast. Definitely a good choice.
