This attractive corner French bakery, breakfast, brunch, and beverage shop boasts mostly, if not totally, organic foods and beverages. All bread is made from scratch every day with organic and local agriculture products whenever possible. Hubby started his breakfast with dessert: a just-out-of-the-oven pecan Danish-superb!...More

Authentic European bakery at their core, their food is very high quality, and the service is always excellent - our favorite local casual restaurant so far - we've been back several times! Both savory and sweet options for breakfast/brunch/lunch.

This branch of PQ is right in the heart of Old Town. Its also the best place to go for cappuccino, served in a deep bowl you could swim in, and delicious. Their sandwiches are delish, and healthy. Salads are also always a good bet....More

We popped in for hot chocolate. The restaurant was not busy but service was somewhat offhand. We have had hot chocolate here before but it did not taste as rich as I remembered it. Altogether a rather disappointing visit.
