    What a beautiful day to sit outside with a friend and enjoy brunch at French Meadow! The service was lovely, the food was outstanding. I had the eggs and smoked salmon while my friend had the ahi tuna dish on the breakfast menu. Just scrumptious. I love the ambience of the restaurant and of course the display case full of delectable bakery items. Bonus for me upon checking out was the wide variety of ice cold Kombucha flavors to take home. Highly recommend this place -- and at 11 AM the free on-street parking made access a breeze.

    Sylvia, our server, was incredible! We’ve had her multiple times and one of the reasons we continue to come back!

    Not sure why we haven't been here before but we will be back! Needed a place for breakfast before going to the museum. Great service and meal. Definitely over ordered, and brought a lot home, but everything was tasty! Highly recommend.

    Such great food and a vast selection - from wonderfully flavored creative dishes to special requests and vegan - provides many choices for everyone. Casual, warm environment without pretense. Our server Callen was fun and professional. We had a great night and birthday celebration and left with a take home bag and bakery goodies for breakfast! Yum!

    Great place at the back with full food and bar menus. Curried Shrimp, Miso Salmon, and Bread Pudding were amazing!

    Really pleased with the experience! Food was all very good, plenty of healthier options. A lot of stuff I'd like to try another time, and the outdoor space is really quaint.
