Cute French themed bakery with good sandwiches. Although premade, my tuna on baguette tasted fresh. You order at counter, which features a number of sandwiches and pastries and carry to a table on a real plate. Nice ambience and great spot for a quick lunch.

We stopped in for a quick breakfast on a recent trip to Georgetown and were impressed with both the service and the quality of the food. In fact the breakfast sandwich was one of the best I have ever had.

Feel like you're in a real French cafe/bistro while enjoying real French bread sandwiches and marvelous pastries. I have a favorite chair in the corner where I can linger over my tea and soaking in the atmosphere. It's a regular go-to place.
