"Staying at the hotel next door and so glad room service didn't answer! I walked in, so cute, nice warm stat for a little while if you can feel. Had a delicious sampler lunch that was filling, healthy, and less than $13 for a 2 salads (strawberry and bacon spinache, plus fruit salad) and a cup of hearty potato soup. So fresh, homemade, and very flavorful. Highly recommended."
"We only went to the bakery side. Workers were nice but I think they forgot about my wife's item that was to be heated up. Took we'll over 5 min for them to heat it and then when we got it it was barely warm. It tasted good though."
"Always enjoy a stop here when we visit Alexandria. The wait staff is typically not as charming as the food. Orders are placed cafeteria-style, which doesn't speed the food to your table, but I've enjoyed every dish immensely and we love gathering small bite pasties to sample after our meal. Those are marvelous."
"Reasonable food and pastries, great ambiance, and not too pricey. I generally stop by when in the area. Overall, a perfect place to grab a coffee and desert! It seems to have somewhat diminished in quality over the years, but still worth going. The pastries are good, but not quite like being in France. Sometimes it is too crowded and the line is frustrating. Sometimes the tables don't get cleared wiped expediently. It would be nice if some of the staff were French, bringing a more authentic feeling. "
"One of the best places to grab a quick lunch in Old Town. It's not fast food, but it is a lot like Panera (but better). The inside is pretty big, so there is usually plenty of seating. The bakery is also ok and you can grab something to go for breakfast which is handy."
