“Great cuisine and great people!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I admit, I've become a regular at St. Germain, and when I look at the other guests, I'm not the only one who enjoys coming here repeatedly.
I really enjoy their cuisine, both from a taste and health perspective. Whether you have their signature soup and quiche combo, one of their numerous salads with an excellent dressing, or a sandwich, it will always taste wonderful.
I also appreciate their creativity in bridging old school drinks with a fresh twist. All I say is basil mojito, as an example! Or chocolate stout!?? Sounds weird, tastes awesome!!!
As if food and drinks weren't enough to love this place, I absolutely adore the ambience. The decoration is simple, old, and beautiful, but what I especially like about St. Germain is the people who work there. They are unpretentious, friendly, knowledgeable, and simply adorable!
Who knows, maybe you will see me there when you go for a meal :-)

“you could eat here every day!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a french bistro on the first floor, not too fancy just good, and then on the second floor its a very cool tapas bar with genious jazz.

So fun, and so delicious.

“Worth a second visit”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Based on other reviews, decided to try for lunch. Small, crowded, clean, noisy but tolerable because food was fresh and tasty. Service was a bit slow because of the crowd. Decided upon second visit for Sunday brunch that they cater to the locals. We were seated first but the locals were attended to and served first. Creative and fresh ideas for drinks such as basil or Ginger lemonade and watermelon sangria. All very good. Female waitress needs to tie her hair back. She spends a lot of time flipping it around and touching it. No refills on coffee. This may be standard in this region but made me feel a bit nickel and dimed. Recommend.

“Quaint”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Fresh feel. Off the beaten path which is nice. Savory menu with great service. Ate there twice, once for lunch and then for breakfast. 3-4 blocks from El Convento.
