In the middle of Flamingo, near to the beach, and close to all the important supermarkets and hotels of the area, you can find this small but smart French "box". For me, breakfasts are the best. If you are around Flamingo, Try it!!

I was very impressed with the food and the service. They also are able to accommodate allergies. Personally I have a life threatening nut allergy, and I felt very comfortable and safe eating the delicious food. I also recommend the hamburger for lunch or dinner....More
