This chrome and cream eatery does a south-of-France take on typical cafe fare with flair. The Bacon-Cheese Sandwich is sparked with crispy pear slices and mustard, with just a hint of horse-radish. The salads favor fava beans and salty, pungent cornichons. If you want to eat on the premises, there is a counter where you stand while digging in. A better choice is the garden patio in the back that takes advantage of the micro-climate's sunny days. The counter is staffed by good-natured twenty-somethings who know their way around an espresso and their upwardly mobile clientèle.
