No_photo A creperie window sits on the first level tempting passers-by. The chalkboard menu mix of homestyle veal, quiche and croque monsieurs is best enjoyed in the upstairs glass terrace. With twilight in the background, sip coffee and soothe your soul with tiramisu or chocolate mousse.

“Have to agree that the chef's daily specials are usually excellent, and they do a great croque. Also love their steak frites, though Des Lys seems to have a slightly better quality steak. Love the banquettes, the atmosphere is "tres congenial" but would be more so if it weren't usually a bit too empty.”

“Not bad... Not bad... Their Croque Madame rocks for breakfast, lunch and dinner ( Ive done this ) - Its made properly unlike Pauls which cheats and just makes a ham sandwhich with cheese on the outside... Salads are always fresh - but just so so... The Chefs Daily specials are normally excellent. Had a pretty good Wild mushroom Quiche and a most excellent warm chocolate cake - which was actually pretty damn good! Coffee aint bad too. They have large brunches on Saturday/Sunday for Y138, but havent tried this yet! Menu looks good! Atmosphere is good. Alot of single french men (older) who come in and sit at the same table day after day (I did the same).

update: I just realized (while sitting in a taxi) that there is one on Hongmei Lu, north of Yan An lu... BRILLIANT!!!!

update 2: The Montmartre on Hongmei Lu is less than good. Noticed its all Chinese chefs. They overcooked and burnt everything. How disappointing... will try again, but didnt enjoy the Croque Madame - was an effort to eat it... :-( :-( :-( The weekend brunch seemed ok. Too much salad. Salad was not as fresh as the French Concession location. French toast was too small. Crepe was good. Croissant was pretty good. French loaf was too doughy and heavy.”
