Can't review it, couldn't go there! Terribly disappointed. Trip advisor should take down or revise this restaurant's status; we searched for it for a long time, until they FINALLY answered their phone and told us.

This restaurant specializes in sweets and no longer produces savory crepes. However, those described in other reviews are simple and substantial, using a good batter and not providing any sugar high! English and French are spoken. I assume all menu items are equally good. Moreover,...More

Description
This was a lovely find just down the street from the La Farge Perry B&B, where we stayed, and across the street from The Viking Hotel. Don't let the small storefront appearance fool you. The proprietor and pastry chef, Michele De Luca-Verley, is a perfectionist in every sense of the word. Her chocolate truffles are an absolutely sensual experience. Her madeleines are biscotti are light, airy, and delicious. Iced coffee is more than merely iced coffee. She froths it in a blender, taking an ordinary beverage and transforming it with that deceptively simple touch into something that will probably have me making it that way for the rest of my life. When she prepares a box of pastries or chocolates for you to take with you, she wraps your purchase with great attention to detail, ties it off with a ribbon, and seals it with sealing wax. Even if you are not in the vicinity, you owe yourself a visit to 28 Bellvue Ave. for a delightful touch of continental excellence. Just avoid the insufferable wine snob next door.
