Foursquare Tips

  • Biscuits are made fresh each morning, creating a tender yet sturdy backdrop for the sausage gravy. The roux-based sauce that goes on top stays light but still has a wonderful creaminess and flavor.
  • They donate a meal to second harvest for every meal served. See
  • The Creole Market Hash was very good but the service was very slow.
  • The French toast is heaven on a plate. Definitely go for Sunday brunch.
  • The blood orange vinaigrette is a new favorite. And go for the root vegetable hash!
  • Delicious onion soup!
  • I dont think you can pick a bad thing on the menu. We got Coconut lime french toast and Jalapeo Cheddar Gravy & Biscuits. Delicious. Theres a wait so go put your name in and walk to Corazon!
  • great service, pulled pork was nice
  • Great service. Stunning well-lit room. Great food.
  • Amazing biscuits and gravy. Berry Crepes were also wonderful. Wowzers.
  • Told it would take 20 minutes to seat our party of 6. They seated at least 12 people before us. We left after 40 minutes. Hostess made no attempt to address or rectify the situation.
  • Slow... But delicious walleye risotto eggs Benedict.
  • Spend some time browsing the quaint store attached. Great finds!
  • For $65 you will enjoy a three-course meal and a champagne toast!
  • Really delicious food. It's a busy place for brunch so you might wait a couple extra minutes, but what's your hurry? Really enjoyed ourselves.
  • Serving simple and generous salad Nicoise, croque monsieur, and fruit and berry crepes, French Hen's menu also inlcudes mouth-watering buttery biscuits and spicy sausage gravy.
  • Bring your own bottle for only a $3 uncorking fee. If you're super hungry, I hope you have some string cheese in your purse...on a busy day, it will take some time from ordering to your table.
