The menu was very unique and I’d love to go back to try more. I had the green French toast which is a brunch special and it was delicious! It has a really cool vibe and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful

Fantastic experience. Fresh squeezed orange juice and hot tea to start. Green French Toast - smoked salmon for me, prosciutto for the other. Verbal tums. Flavors and textures just like our pastry chef/server described - complex and amazing combinations. We finished with a true cappucino and a lavendar creme brulee. We loved every bite of the dessert. Mia had served the last piece of Opera Cake so we missed out- we will be back to savor and enjoy again. Highly recommend !! Awesome Experience ❤

Date night special was unprecedented!! Delicious wine, food and desserts. Get the creme brulee if you know what's good for you.

Wonderful evening, really enjoyed the food, the atmosphere -- a great place to go for Tuesday night "date night" -- which includes a bottle of wine, 2 entrees and 2 desserts -- just perfect! Everything was excellent, can't wait to go back!!

Overall, loved the experience at this restaurant. Was very intimate, relaxing, and the service and ambiance were incredible. Such a cute place and the food was fun to try. Ordered the charcuterie and was unexpectedly disappointed because it did not come with any cheese (only some yummy meats, bread, butter and pickles). Later discovered that “charcuterie” actually means “assortment of cured meats.” Overall was a lovely and memorable experience.
The best part was the dessert. Wow! I would come back.

This place! So cute, cozy, attentive and quick service, and one of the best omelets I’ve ever had. It was so good I immediately made another reservation to come back for dinner two days later. Can’t recommend it enough!

This is a delightful little place! It was my first time there, a Sunday morning brunch with a friend. The server was funny and (mostly) attentive, the food was outstanding, and the whole "vibe" was fun, casual, and friendly. I will DEFINITELY be going back!!!

A great little find in the Madison area. A quaint location excellent for brunch or that secret little spot that you escape with your friends to have a conversation with the sense of a Paris cafe. Although not a large establishment the quaint sense of authenticity comes through in every dish. The service was excellent and thoughtful. Definitely a must try if you have not been there, and reservations are highly recommended given the limited seating during peak hours.
