This is the second time we visited this tiny sandwich shop with a legitimate French theme. There are just a few tables inside with a couple outside as well. Another reviewer indicated that there table was not the cleanest. Nor was ours, but they apologized and corrected the problem. The ordering is done at the counter. The food was delivered quickly and was tasty. My regular sandwich was fine and the second crepe was excellent. We did not try any of the pastries on this visit but did on our first one and they were very tasty. The restaurant does support local public activities such as the Trinity College "April in Paris" film festival. We would have rated it higher had our table been appropriately maintained.

It is cute and it's nice to have a plan B instead of Starbucks and panerra. But, space is too tiny and service is slow. Croissants and quiche are all right but it is noy worth to pay the price.

We stopped here for a crepe and sandwich for lunch. Good basic fare with a small seating area perfect for our needs.

We had so looked forward to going here and we walked in to find a small restaurant crowded with tables and only two customers. I don't think you could walk to the back if it were full of people, not easily anyway...We tried several tables until we found a clean one which our knees would fit underneath. This was our first (and only) visit, I asked "How you order? menus? Do we order from the board on the wall? I had hoped the young man behind the register would give a quick run down...I found the menu by accident. He offered no suggestions.
We ordered Croque Monsieur (one of my favorites) and the sandwich arrived with the edges all around were dried out and the cheese overdone and hard...not pleasant to bite into...the ham was good. I went back to get a pastry for dessert and noone was to be found. I waited a bit but finally gave up, No idea what happened to the two young men there.
An unhappy meal all around...I hope this was only a bad day they were having that day because I will never return. BTW, Avert, a French restaurant around the corner has very good service and is CLEAN and has one of the best Croque Monsieurs I have ever tasted.
