Maison Cafe + Market
Don’t let its unassuming location fool you—wedged between a dry cleaners and a bait shop, it might be easy to pass by Maison without a second glance. But once you catch a whiff of fresh-baked croissants, your curiosity will be piqued. At the restaurant’s helm is chef and owner Danielle Kuhn, who is often seen flitting from table to table, sharing laughs with guests. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we recommend any of the toasts from their morning menu (ranging from house-made, honey-whipped ricotta and blackberry jam to organic scrambled eggs and prosciutto) one of the tartines for lunch (such as the Tagliata with sliced steak, caramelized onions, and goat cheese), or the Swordfish Provencal with blistered tomatoes and potatoes for dinner. Don’t skip the Upside Down Pear Cake for dessert and set aside some time to browse the attached gourmet market that stocks grab-and-go meals, sauces, wines, and even cookbooks.
