Pale sage walls, a sloping ceiling, and casual but warm service set a sunny mood in this little bistro. The compact menu focuses on California and French comfort food—pot roast and duck confit, for instance, as well as thin-crust pizza. Steamed mussels are served with terrific crispy fries, which also accompany the sirloin burger. Weekend brunch brings out locals and tourists for French toast, pizza with applewood-smoked bacon and poached eggs, corned-beef hash, and
other delights. The unusual no-corkage-fee policy makes this a great place to drink the wine you discovered down the road.
