My Quiche Lorraine (see pic.) was excellent. Light fluffy egg custard was superb and overcame the distraction of an overcooked pastry. Everything else at our table looked very well prepared. Having said that, $14 for a quiche with a side of salad greens, and $14...More

Can Can DOES offer a kid's menu! Les Enfants! I have taken my granddaughter there several times. The fresh fruit is a healthier alternative to the frites, (but the frites are great also). The grilled cheese is a favorite... More
