Located near the spot of the old Hudson’s department store, the cafe has floor to ceiling windows and the Maurice salad that was created by the store. “Everything is delicious,” said Yellin. Absolutely everything. The salads, their special stuffed French Toast.”

“It’s a funky little cafe,” said Yellin, with authentic Paris cuisine and atmosphere. Her favorite dish is the chicken ratatoille sandwich. “It’s like a stew with chicken in it on a baguette and it’s delicious.”

The restaurant located in the Carr Building in Paradise Valley is a former Speakeasy. Yellin say it’s a great pick for the socially conscious. “It supports training for [restaurant workers] people looking to get that foot up, as well as buying local and from reputable farmers.”

This restaurant also trains workers to enter the restaurant industry. Yellin said it’s great for those who love soul food. “Big meal. Fried chicken, catfish, mac and cheese. Oh yeah…it’s good.”
