We received a glowing recommendation about this charming place in Islamorada and had a chance to visit it last weekend. We were charged with ordering sandwiches for a boating trip with some French friends - a tough crowd. Bitton Bistro Cafe was the perfect choice. The night before we went through the menu and made decisions. Called up the next morning and ordered -- great young lady took the order. We get there and Michel Bitton is finishing up the sandwiches; so I order a cappuccino and two pain au chocolat for my wife and me (later on the pain au chocolat). Sandwiches perfectly wrapped in a bag and off we go.
Capuccino was delicious and the petit pain au chocolat were amazing. Perfectly crisp on the outside and exquisite on the inside. As good as you get in France.
The sandwiches: we were all on the water and hungry so perhaps the senses were on fire but these sandwiches were outstanding. My wife and I ordered the Lyon - baguette with rosette de lyon hard salami, gruyere and dijon. Simple but amazing. Baguette was extraordinary even in the heat and humidity of the Keys. Others had the Paris - french ham with gruyere and dijon - and the Rustic - pate, dijon and cornichons.
The friend who recommended Bitton says the crepes are amazing.
Highly highly recommended.
