For those that like upscale French food, I must say that Cafe Normandie is an American version of a French upscale restaurant. French being the operative word for this place. Local French food lovers consider this to be one of the more comfortable French restaurants...More

A very comfortable restaurant with a creative and authentic menu. It was easy to understand why this is a favorite with the locals. Good food, good staff, good ambience.

Had a mid-week lunch there and it was fine. Really good onion soup and the Trout Almondine was cooked to perfection. Service is friendly but on the slow side. Sort of a hidden gem in downtown Annapolis.

We had a lovely brunch. The food was great. The service was kind. The ambience was nice, a little like being transported to a bistro in France.

Went to Cafe Normandie this past weekend. The food was exquisite! There were 5 people in my party including an Aunt visiting from France. She was elated to find such excellent, authentic French cuisine in Annapolis. (She also loved the town BTW). We enjoyed it...More
