Loved it, cute little restaurant, quite literarily a hallway. Loved the decoration and the food was great. Yes, the baguette was a bit hard to chew, but that's standard here in the US.

We had lunch, but were very disappointed in the food, very bland, no seasonings, bread was hard, not worth the money. Seating is at shared countertops/tables, odd layout and cramped. Service could have been better. Cannot recommend. Will not be going back.
