This charming bakery and lunch spot is the offspring of Cafe Beaujolais, a small French restaurant that opened several years ago on the south side of the street. The bright, cheerful Beaujolais Boulangerie is delightful; or, as one friend happily sighed, “paradise.” The breakfast menu includes egg dishes, and the lunch menu, available all day, offers an appealing selection of soups, quiches, sandwiches and meal-size salads. The cult favorite appears to be the croque monsieur. A central display case of desserts lures you in with jewel-toned fruit tarts and glassy-topped creme brulee. In another case are baskets of pain au chocolat, pain aux raisins and croissants. The service is French and good-natured; so good-natured that the waiters let me practice my rudimentary Berlitz French on them.
