We had breakfast there and was the best Crepe I have ever eaten. The sunflower French toast was an interesting flavor combination that I would definitely order again. Prompt friendly service, easy to find and value priced. The have earned an excellent rating by us!!

4 Staff behind the counter chatting, 1 staff cleaning a table, We waited and waited for someone to seat us or at least acknowledge that we were waiting and say it would just be a few minutes, but nothing. At least 2 of the staff kept looking at me but said nothing each time, so we went somewhere else for... More

Very good menu. Food is pretty good and good portions. Coffee is excellent. Their bread is really nice but they don't toast it properly and therefore it is very dry. I think they just warm it and by doing so it drys it out. either toast it or just serve it cold and fresh!

The pastry, meals and coffee are all excellent and the staff are relaxed and friendly. It is always busy! Even if you come in for just a meal, no one can bear... More

While I love stopping in to take away the beautiful and delicious baked goods and pastries, we don't go anymore to sit in for breakfast or lunch. The table service is a little slow even when not busy and usually forgetful. The place is looking beat up and in need of some cleaning up. Too bad, we used to really... More

customers are not rushed to finish which is very relaxing. Meals and desserts are homemade. Has an almost old world feel to it. Service could improve as it can be slow. Order coffee and enjoy

I love this place for a cup of tea or coffee, some cake or just a snack. Girls working here are absolutely friend, efficient and helpful. The atmosphere is great, friendly and it can be surrounded by great paintings.

This little cafe has great prices for their food! They offer baked pastries and breads, have servers who provide you with a menu but also a drop in pick up area for baked goods and coffees. They serve alcoholic beverages... the atmosphere is nice and relaxed. I didn't like some of the decor (having multiple different chairs didn't give it... More

Stooped in on a Saturday morning for breakfast. We both had the breakfast sandwich. A very tasty cheese scone played host to an egg, tomato and ham. Served with very nice home made hash brown. Sevice was friendly.

We've been going to the French Way since it was on Academy. It's our special breakfast place. Love the Eggs Benedict.
