Location Description:

The cakes, pastries, cookies and croissants made here are all masterpieces. This is a classic Euro-style cafe and bistro. It has long been a favorite of the River Oaks crowd, especially with the ladies who lunch, who enjoy the many creative salads, such as the Avocado and Tomato Caesar. There's also baguette sandwiches, fluffy breakfast omelets served all day, daily lunch specials and good coffee. The interior is decorated with the work of local artists.
