To call the French Coffee Shop a "coffee shop" is a little misleading. They offer little more than your normal cup of coffee and it is a weak cup at that. It also does not open until 11. Normally I want my coffee before 11:00. The menu is not extensive, but does have a French flair to it. Everyone I have talked to about this place says to get the French Onion Soup. We both got a cup and it was very good. There was lots of delicious melty cheese and a large piece of bread. There weren't a lot of onions in it, but the broth was tasty. I ordered the half sandwich with my cup of soup which I thought was a pretty good deal and filling enough for lunch. I got the French dip and it was good. The bread was very good, fresh but crusty. The meat was tender and the homemade mayo was good. TBG got the cheese burger. He agreed about the bread, but the burger was way overcooked. There was a selection of savory and sweet crepes that looked good, but we did not try. The service was a little slow. There was only one server when we arrived, but not too many tables either. As the lunch hour went on there were more servers and plenty more tables. The decor was french chef, not great but looked clean enough. I would say if you live close this is a great place for lunch, I do not know if I will make the effort to go back.
