Inside a beautifully restored historic building, this bistro has a rarified atmosphere and an on-the-premises bakery that turns out a luscious array of French-style pastries. The breakfast menu highlights some of the baked delights, including the smoked-salmon croissants and the indulgent strawberry French toast sandwich. The enclosed patio, with its wrought-iron tables and chairs, is a lovely place to enjoy a late afternoon coffee among a mixed crowd of business executives,
surfers, and families. The business lunch is a good value while the dinner menu offers more extensive fish and meat options.
