If you're on your own, perhaps especially if you are a woman, join the ladies who lunch. The name ("coffee shop") is meant tongue-in-cheek: This is one chic restaurant. The menu changes, but I always hope that leeks in crème fraiche or onion pie will be on it, and I always save room in case profiteroles are also available. This is an intimate choice with just a few tables outside on a rather precariously sloping sidewalk.
