     We serve American food with a French flair. From full entrees to sandwiches and salads, we’ve got something for everyone’s taste -- all with the creative touches that make the difference between "good" and "great". Please visit us.  For easy access,  we’re right on the border of Fairfield and Southport, just a half mile from I-95. We hope that once you’ve been here, you’ll keep coming back. Open 7 days a week.
