Visited on 6/13/12.
Stopped in for a lunch on the way to the airport as this one has been on my list to try for a while now.
J got French onion soup, C also got the soup and mozzarella caprese sandwich. Both reported that the soup was good and C liked her sandwich. I shared a hot cajun roast beef sandwich with J. Since the sandwich was served with a bowl of french onion soup broth, I can attest to the great flavor of the soup base. I loved the flavor of the sandwich but would have preferred the beef to be slightly less rare. There was a nice amount of cooked onion and melted cheese that did not take over the beef. The vegetables on the sandwich were fresh.
The tea was very good and strong enough for the first time during this trip to the northwest.
We finished off with an order of beignets and I added a coffee. The beignets were very good though a bit denser than I am used to. I loved the chicory anglaise that accompanied them for dipping. A delightful blend of coffee, chicory, and cream with a hint of sweetness. The coffee is perhaps the best coffee that I have ever been served in a restaurant (coffee houses/cafes are not included), it was strong enough to be called coffee and a very smooth roast. The best part was that it was served in a french press.
I will definitely return.
