We are a small, French inspired restaurant located at 616 South Elm Street in downtown Greensboro, NC. 


What makes us unique?

We offer an integrated hiring model, seeking to provide equal employment for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

It is our mission to provide community & connection across the table.

We believe good food brings people together!

Important service details!

We are a full service, first come-first served restaurant. We do not accept reservations.

We have one menu that is served daily from 8am-2pm.

Get here early on the weekends!

Due to our capacity & operating hours, our wait list may be cut off prior to closing on busy days so that our kitchen can accommodate current tables & orders!


Take-out orders:

When our restaurant is on a wait, take-out is limited to our take-out menu (click here). Full menu take-out orders are taken by phone or walk-in & typically available Monday-Friday and weekends before 9am.
