How I heard of this place: Back in March, on one of many walks through downtown, I stumbled upon a quaint, French-looking patisserie. Stepping inside, I was even more drawn to sample the bites and fare in this cozy spot. Sadly, I was unable to on the first round. Even our attempt two days prior turned out futile, as they were closed – lights off, doors locked – well over an hour prior to their published closing time. Despite my husband urging me to not return, we made a lunch date plan on this Thursday, and were both pleased we did!

For our son, a small side of Beets by Dre salad ($ by weight) made up of beets, feta, onion and thyme.

And for me, the open-faced BLT ($12.95) with fried, over-easy egg and arugula pesto, served with a side salad in a lemony vinaigrette.

And a Napoleon ($4.95), highly recommended by our order-taker.

What I loved: The fries were crispy, the egg white solid and the yolk streaming through the sandwich, the salad tantalizing, the blondie super-sweet, and the Napoleon a thing of the Gods!

Why I loved it: Quaint, cozy, amazing house-made everything.
