Café Du Jour is the place for soup du jour, which changes daily, providing plenty of seasonal and delicious options. What you must try, however, is its wild mushroom consomme, which combines king oyster with porcini, shitake, shimeji mushrooms and maitake for a truly unique combination. Its soups are the perfect starter for lunch or dinner entrees highlighting local and international flavors, such as slow-roasted spiced beef, fennel sausage meatballs, chile-ginger glazed salmon and crispy goat cheese fritter salad."

“During the summer months in good weather all guests sit outside in the courtyard patio behind the restaurant, where a burbling fountain and wrought-iron tables lend the restaurant a romantic, continental feel. People come for the setting and the food, but also for the prices, which are lower than many restaurants with similar menus.”
