HERE IS HIS POSTSCRIPT ARTICLE ON OUR BISTRO.
Went here on a quiet Wednesday afternoon (around 2pm). This cute "village bistro" is a bit tucked away- its just off Douglas and Folsom- Auburn- but find it, trust me, it's worth it!
Like other reviews said, it's a quaint, cozy place- it is not a big or even a medium restaurant, the small atmosphere delivers a "home-cooked" feeling- though I've never had a home-cooked French meal...
I went there and the only staff there was a woman and her (I think) husband, Chef Cristophe- they own the place. I only ordered desert, creme brulee cheese cake- which was fantastic! Very light yet flavorful cheescake with hints of the creme brulee on top. I also ordered macaroons, coconut, strawberry and pistachio- small in size but quite big in flavor. According to the Misses, some of their pastries are done in house, others are delivered from a French bakery in SF. They also had some chocolate deserts, and fruit tarts.
Didn't get to try their lunch, though it all seemed very light, very cafe style dining (paninis, soups, salads)- I do believe they had a few more serious meals for people with an appetite. I paid $6 for the slice of creme brulee cake.
Service was quick and friendly (I was the only 1 there), I'm anxious to try their full menu. But for a sweet tooth, and some light lunch with your girlfriend, family or friend, this is a great place to stop. BTW, their hours are quite limited, so check their website- I believe they only serve breakfast-lunch.
