Our Cuisine...

Our menu is based on authenticity, creativity and quality. We stay true to the classic way in preparing some of our bistrot dishes and crepes, but also try to be versatile and creative to keep our customers excited. 
We offer special dishes that change with the seasons and use locally grown product. In addition, we offer what we call "Dish of the month" a true Bistrot dish.

All of our cooking and baking is from scratch, keeping our food quality and standard as fresh and as high as possible.

Wine List...

We change our wine list several times a year.  The wine list is small but eclectic, which features wines from around the world at a great value.
