Here's why I love them!
1) Everything always smells and looks so fresh and so good.
They use simple, fresh ingredients to create wholesome meals fit for omnivores, vegetarians, and even vegans (the menu has something for everyone).
Their tartines are almost too photogenic to eat.
2) The environment is cosy, comfortable, and not at all stiff.
Whodathunk a French place would make people feel comfortable? I suppose the French love of good food (which necessitates good atmosphere) precludes the otherwise anticipated haughtiness.
3) They offer baking classes...
Baking is SO fun.
|Sadly for my mom, this is a fairly accurate depiction of how both her kitchen and I look whenever I go baking crazy when I'm home for the holidays.|
4) ...and they actually share their recipes online.
Including for such unique foods as Olive Shortbread Cookies!
I'm half-German. 'Nuff said.
