Another reviewer said this was like dining in a medieval village in France. I've seriously got to wonder if he/she has ever been to France, let alone a medieval village there. Andre's is nothing like that.

We ate upstairs - street level. I'm not sure but there maybe a cellar room also. (and maybe that's where the medieval village is!) The staff is friendly (if a little saccharine). The ambiance is: tile floor, bead-board paneling, and polished granite. Lovely mix of music the night we were there - Flamenco and Tango.

The only alcohol served is local wine. Two vineyards represented; both reds and whites. We both drank the same wine, which was a Cabernet Sauvignon from Buckingham Vineyards. They waitress poured a nice glass but it was shallow and hot.

A $16 half antipasto plate was plentiful with olives, humus, fig jam, almonds, salami, pita - not exactly your typical antipasto plate, but tasty and a decent value. We shared this and then we both had "Naan pie" - basically a shortcut pizza using Naan as the base. Mine had chorizo, manchego, and fig jam. My partner's had salami, chèvre, and fig jam. Maybe it was just what we ordered, but you'll notice that every plate had fig jam! It's an interesting twist, but overdone. Sweet and savory can be a great combination, but only if well balanced. The Naan pies were too sweet. They both came with a side salad which was uninspired - just chopped greens with a sweet vinaigrette.

Andre's is a cozy location where you can buy meats, cheeses and wines ... or you can sit down and have a nosh.

I was intrigued when I saw "naan pies" on the menu. The dough was a pillowy soft naan drizzled with olive oil and topped with arugula and proscruitto. It was a delicious combination. My friend had the black bean and avocado salad which was excellent and mixed into the salad were slivers of peppadew.

"What is peppadew?" I asked the server. Tiny slivers of zesty, sweet and hot -- not exactly hot but somehow spicy bits of pickled peppers which you can buy in a jar at the counter. They are a product of South Africa and were so intriguing I had to bring a jar home to flavor my homemade salads.

A wonderful lunch with fresh food and unique selections. If I lived closer, Andre's would be the place to take visitors for a delicious snack or meal.

First, cheese lovers get ready. I don't know who Andre's purveyors are but his cheeses are fabulous. He makes great cheese plates, and combines them in various forms with meats and olives. His wines, unfortunately, are strictly local which can be very iffy. But when they are good, they're great because they are reasonably priced. And he will let you taste until you find one you like. Andre makes a wonderful latte. It's just a fun place for a late afternoon snack of wine and cheese. We've never eaten dinner anything more involved there but feedback from diners was always positive. This place is a real find.

My wife and I have had several enjoyable evenings at Andre's. Great wine and sangria and we always get the antipasto tray. Desert is also a must try.

We went to Doylestown to see the Uffizi show at the Mitchener Art Museum. Our attempts at getting a lunch at the museum cafe proved fruitless, so we decided to walk a couple blocks into town to see what we could find.

Our first choice--the current menu did not resemble the onlive reviews, and prices seemed high for what one would get.

We walked over to Andre's and decided to stay. Both the hummus wrap and the black bean wrap were generous portions at $9 and actually came with a generous side salad that included spring mix, julienned carrots, some cucumber, and a bit of grated cheese with our balasamic dressing on the side. Tasty wraps with nice fresh veggies!

Local wines were also available. The Bucks County Chardonnay was not particularly special, but it wasn't woody, either.

We took a table near the take-out deli/cheese, so there was some entertainment as people came in and bought some cheese.

Service was pleasant and friendly. Considering what we would not have gotten at the museum cafe for the same price had we actually been able to order, Andre's was very value-priced for the area.

We had a tasty and value-priced lunch in relaxing surroundings.
