This place is wonderful. At first I was a little put back. I wanted their famous Pastrami Sandwich, but I hate sweet mustard... so I ordered without. They refused to make it without, said that he would make it as described in the menu, if...More

The pastrami is top notch; Best in town. Soups are great, as is the bread. The owner is not a personable guy, period. If you go looking to converse with staff, you are kidding yourself. The chicken pesto is very good as well.

Stopped by just to get some coffee drinks. Didn't stick around for food. Cute little joint with VERY limited seating. Good coffee drinks but the guy who made them was very rude.

Frenchies food is fantastic. The house pastrami is a standing TC staple and this tiny, off the path restaurant leaves me satisfied every time.

I ate there twice in the past week. The first time I had to wait quite a bit for my order, but it was during Traverse City's cherry festival. The second time I called in my order and they had it waiting when they said...More
