Everything great, except noise level. There was a huge party taking up two large tables so it couldn’t be avoided.

La Cannelle is the best restaurant in Delaware County. Lubna, the owner, is always on site with a smile. The seasonal menu is a delicious mix of French and Mediterranean with an American flair. Perfect for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Skip State Street in Media, the best dining is down on Providence Rd.

This BYOB has interesting, delicious food and is good for folks who need gluten free options. The short ribs with root vegetable puree, fish special, and desserts, including flourless chocolate cake, were outstanding. I suggest making an early reservation for ease of parking and bringing your best wine to pair with what should be an excellent meal.

Great little spot for brunch. The coffee is amazing, as well as their food. The menu is small, but everything is well done. Their bacon sometimes is a bit overcooked, but not terrible. I highly recommend this cute little spot!

Surprisingly outstanding! Food was great as was service and live music as we enjoyed dinner outside. Mushroom soup was smooth and tasty, salad crisp and unique, and our entrees perfectly prepared. We didn’t expect to order a dessert but yielded to the panna cotta which completed a wonderful dinner out. Thank you La Cannelle.

Wanted to love this place - it's a tiny spot and we booked a very early breakfast for Mother's Day. When we arrived, there were several tables open (we were early even for our early reservation), and we were sat by the window.

After our waters were brought over and our menus distributed, we were told (not asked) to move to a table in the back by the kitchen. They said that they had a party of 8 coming in, needing our table. This would've been fine, but we watched them break up two tables in the back, built for a party of 8, to set up our 4-top.

A group of 8 walked in, people well into their 80s - I thought okay, I understand. Then THE SAME THING happened. They were sat by the window, waters distributed, when they TOO WERE UPROOTED to the middle of this very tiny restaurant. They looked equally confused and had a challenge getting into their seats in the tight space. For the entire breakfast, waitstaff bumped their chairs getting around them.

I said to the owner that I've never had this situation happen, much less twice. And, I've worked in many a restaurant, large and small. I cannot imagine this ever being okay, especially twice.

It was our first experience at Cannelle, and it will be our last. Seriously, save yourself the trouble, unless you order takeout.

Innovative specials like the homemade tagliatelle with goat was delicious. And I was headed there mainly for the duck breast from the main menu. Accompanied by many healthy starter & salad choices makes this little know place very attractive.
Being a BYO & making reservations easily though Open Table certainly help.
Outstanding service by Susan and the owner, Lubna.

We tried a number of (5) appetizers and small plates. Each was creative and delicious. My favorite was the gnocchi that sat on a tasty onion sauce. The charred kale salad was delicious. Great sized portions for sharing. We did not order an entree. We were full when we left and did not have room for dessert.

We will be back.

I would never have stopped there because of the location in a tiny row of shops. However a friend said it was wonderful and it really was!! The food was just delicious and the three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was outstanding. It was quiet with nice music. We could talk at a normal level. I had the crab egg rolls and the cheese appetizer. One friend had steak and another had onion gnocchi. Everything is as outstanding. They even have creme brûlée for dessert.

This little place is a great find, a hidden gem. From the appearance outside you wouldn’t expect such quality, and the picture on Open Table of a dessert is also misleading- I first thought it must be a bakery. The menu is not huge but very good. The service was delightful and friendly, and I gave 4 rather than 5 on that only because the food was a little slow in the preparation. I’ll definitely plan to be back.
