In addition to serving up savory family recipes from the South of France (think Comte cheese quiche and Parisian ham croques), the provincial farmhouse-style café also offers an assortment of artisanal breads and pastries, all baked fresh daily, in-house.

And if you love the menu at Maman but are in the mood for something a tad heftier, the trio will open their new outpost, Papa Poule—complete with a rotisserie roaster in the front window—this month just one block over (on Lafayette St.).
