This Mountain View location of a French-themed bakery café chain delivers pretty much what you'd expect with that theme: no more, no less. In addition to outdoor sidewalk seating under parasols in front, inside they sport antique photos with clock themes, decorative light fixtures, and a series of café tables and chairs. They offer pastries, wine, and typical breakfast or lunch fare, and there's a three-group La Marzocco Linea for pulling shots of espresso. Using Bicycle Coffee Co. beans, it comes with an even, medium brown crema of moderate thickness. It has a flavor of spices and some wood and is served in white Steelite cups. Pretty decent, though not great.
