Adorable French/German Cafe. I enjoyed the bistro atmosphere. I've never been to Paris, but felt it would probably be like that. The brunch menu is very limited, but we ordered the eggs benedict, ratatouille and spinach crepe, and strawberry French toast. It all was delicious....More

After several trips to Galena, we had heard about this euro-style bistro near the end of the Main St business district. The food and service were excellent! We look forward to returning for more great meals. YUM

How unique -- a French and German restaurant. One person enjoys French cuisine, and the other enjoys German cuisine? Perfect! Give it a try!
