This adorable outpost of a Southern California chain is perfect for breakfast, a light lunch, or a late-afternoon afternoon pick-me-up. With authentic French decor and just a dozen tables, Champagne serves amazing crepes—the Florentine has roasted chicken, creamed spinach, and Swiss cheese—as well as an assortment of savory flatbreads (try the pesto-and-tomato version). The perennial breakfast favorite is the brioche French toast with bacon. The afternoon crowd chats
over cappuccinos, raspberry-almond croissants, and meringue cookies.
