After residing for 12 years near Glover and Atlanta streets in Marietta, Douceur De Fran French Bakery and Cafe re-located this summer to 277 South Marietta Parkway, at the intersection of Powder Springs Street and the South Marietta loop. It was a good move.
There is so much more room for seating at the new restaurant--and more room to put out the luscious French pastries the cafe is known for. We went in for lunch on a crowded day just before Christmas, and everyone and everything was in a festive mood.
Service: The service was good, in spite of the busyness of the season. Our server was knowledgable about the specials of the day and good at recommendations on the menu.
Entrees: I tried the spinach and cheese quiche (what else?) and was pleased by its flavor and consistency, although it was a bit small for a lunch item. You can add a salad or side item for an additional cost.
Dessert: This is what I was waiting for. I chose a French crepe with chocolate sauce and bananas. It was very light and tasty and satisfied my sweet tooth.
It's hard to decide on desserts--there's the Napoleon, the petits fours, snowmen and Santas--all made from scratch.
Prices: Pricing is reasonable, with entrees between $4 and $8.
Rating: Overall, we were very satisfied with the service, food and environment.
Hours: Open Monday to Saturday, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Kitchen closes at 3:30 p.m.
