    I'm not sure why they bothered to license the name as it gives misplaced expectations as to what the venue will be like. The NYC original is fun, raucous- a real party place where the food, although solid, plays second fiddle to the atmosphere and 'scene'. Given this spot doesn't have a license, that atmosphere could never be replicated; the fact that it is often sparsely populated makes the difference even more stark. The food is fine- nothing to write home about and quite pricey (more reflective of a licensed-establishment) but you won't complain. It's just that, with so much on offer nearby, these spots need to distinguish themselves to get return customers. I don't regret trying it once but sadly, this place doesn't warrant a second trip.

    There are loads of misplaced apostrophes on the boards in this restaurant. It put me off my breakfast.

    Uncomparable to the more low key likes of Shakespeares and Co or even Paul. The food was below average, and I was even served a stale almond croissant - not great for a french cafe! The service was poor, with a waiter that didnt even know what was on the menu with much of the items sold out.
    I wouldn't recommend it.

    Yeah, it's a decent place to go for breakfast if you can't get in at La Serre.

    Although if you're a punctuation pedant then it will drive you mad - there are apostrophes scattered randomly everywhere on the blackboards inside.
