Really nice spot for lunch/brunch. We went on a Sunday around noon and were able to sit right away in the quaint, albeit cramped dining room. Service was friendly and prompt. The menu offers a great variety of French Vietnamese foods to please the pickiest...More

We were in the mood for a pho and four of us just had lunch there. This restaurant/boulangerie offers a cute setting with tables outside and inside by a bar as well as individual tables and one large communal table for 12 persons. We were...More

My family enjoyed a great brunch at Elizabeth Street Cafe. Service was great and food was very interesting. Outdoor seating is kept reasonably cool with their misting system. I had a mango salad that had some kick but was missing shrimp that menu indicated would...More

I can tell you that I've eaten there by myself, and with friends, but I took my wife this last time so that I could get the full descriptive picture. It is a nice place to eat. Inside is really noisy, but it's the place...More

VERY pleasant space with lovely service, beautiful baked goods for here or take home. French/Viet influences. We split a Roasted Pork & Wood Ear Mushroom Omelette with mango, cucumber, basil, crispy shallots - totally savory and scrumptious! This place is a winner.

Great food. The steamed buns were delicious but wish there had been more! I would definitely try the bahn mi next time. It looked delicious.

Relaxing out door patio with cooling mist. Service was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp noodle salad and ginger sausage with siracha sticky rice and egg. The beignets could have been larger and more fluffy with filling. A fun experience. Thanks for...More

I will be back! I've always thought their sign was cute, but who knew the inside was too. Every little detail was thought of, from the pillows on the banquette to the silverware on the table...even the beautiful dresses on the waitresses. The whole breakfast...More

Charming little house, friendly staff and really excellent food! I'm not a Vietnamese food fanatic, & some of the flavors were unexpected (even in simple items like the berry/yogurt/granota bowl), but it was fresh, complex & wonderful! So glad I remembered that a reviewer had...More
