“Great for dinner, great for breakfast/brunch”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

We have never been disappointed at Cafe Brioche.
I'm not a coffee drinker - but there coffee is great. Their French Toast is even better than my mother made. Their specials are great, their regualr breakfasts are as well - and very filling. The dinner menu is not huge, but all of it is done well (but not in the over-cooked sense).

Great food, excellent presentation. Nice service staff. Intimate setting if that is what you desire. Also some outdoor seating. We ate dinner here and then returned a few minutes later for coffee and tea.

“Lovely but not French enough”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

Having recently holidayed in France I was eager to have a French meal. But the meal was not complex & subtle but large & while it g
Had all the right ingredients they were not blended and integrated a la France. They offered Sauternes but had run out! Almost good & they try hard with very good service but only got it 75% right for me.

“One of my favorite breakfast places.”
Reviewed 20 October 2012

The brioche french toast is my favorite. The daily specials are always delicious. It's busy, often with a wait, but I always feel well cared for and happy in that cozy little environment.
