Bistro Maxine Restaurant Review

: This little French crêperie is a pleasant spot, and a good alternative to the many overcrowded coffee shops in the area. With a handful of tables inside and even fewer outside, it remains, as yet, undiscovered by the business crowd and therefore has space for people who stop in for something light, or a full meal. Crêpes are the centerpiece, but salads, soups and sandwiches present classic French sidewalk bistro fare, croques monsieur and madame particularly. Barefoot Coffee espresso drinks should please coffee cultists, and spicy hot chocolate is there for those seeking alternative forms of caffeine.
