We were walking around the shopping district and decided on a light lunch. We choose La Cave because it was a small French Bistro. We both had French Onion Soup and it riviled my own. It was super!

We found this place quite by accident after a day of sightseeing with a one day bus tour. Exhausted and not really in the mood for a pub scene, we were looking for something different and quieter. This place is right off of Grafton Street...More
