Cafe De France
Cafe de France captures the essence of European cuisine with a hefty menu brimming with mouth-moistening meals, coffees, and pastries. Each dish is prepared from fresh ingredients, free of unnecessary additives, preservatives, or immortality elixirs. Early-rising office workers can steel themselves against the Sisyphean struggles of their promotion to assistant boulder-pusher with a flaky croissant sandwich ($7.75–$8.99) or a hearty breakfast of salmon benedict ($10.95). Cafe de France also keeps appetite uprisings in check with a plethora of pasta, steak, and chicken entrees such as the steak bordelaise, with sautéed mushrooms and a burgundy-wine sauce ($14.75), or the pasta a la provencal, a mélange of angel-hair pasta, shrimp, tomatoes, and herbs ($11.50). A hearty helping of ham-and-cheese quiche lorraine with champagne sauce ($8.99) combines the savory wholesomeness of an omelet with the biting sarcasm of pie. Coup-de-grace your healthy craving for Gallic gastronomy with a dessert of cream-filled blintzes ($8.95).
