Watch while you wait

Appropriately, the star of the show is the chef. The restaurant boasts an open kitchen, so you can watch the man in white work his magic while you wait. This allows you to see the passion and enthusiasm that goes into the making of every unique dish.

Savory dishes to satisfy

A specialty of the house is the Bonjour Burger, which consists of grass-fed beef kofta (which can be subbed for a plant based IMPOSSIBLE patty), caramelized onions, tomato and baby arugula on a fresh baguette, plus the mysterious Bonjour sauce. Served up with potatoes on the side, you’ve got yourself a fine, nourishing meal.

When it comes to dessert, you’ll find plenty to choose from. Whether you fancy a rich, freshly-baked pastry to a fruity, more calorie-conscious item, such as their signature blueberry bowl. Don’t let the name fool you- there are more surprises waiting for you besides just blueberries!

You almost thought we would forget the main staple, crepes! They come in all shapes and sizes, sweet and savory you name it. So if it’s a light meal or a sweet snack you are after, this might just fit the bill.

Specializing in gluten free and vegan options
