- Passing over Lakewood's tiny Café Bisque would mean missing out on chef Alex Gurevich's heavenly buttermilk lemon-poppy seed pancakes, or rustic sweet potato hash with poached eggs, hollandaise, bacon, tomatoes, and goat cheese. – Amanda M. Faison, Gretchen Kurtz, & Carol W. Maybach, 5280
- I had a cup of the lobster bisque from which Cafe Bisque originally took its name and found it, as always, one of the best soups in the city — a rich and skillfully spiced base that created the silky luxury of drinking a bowlful of heavy cream, studded with fat chunks of delicious lobster flesh. – Jason Sheehan, Westword
- Cafe Bisque reminds me so much of what its like to eat a REAL meal. One that has been made with love and precision. I could actually see the chef putting the final touches on my plate before it was brought to me! – Aklew, Citysearch
