New French inspired café to open downtown Cincinnati

CINCINNATI -- Chef and owner of Jean-Robert’s Table in Cincinnati will announce the opening of a brand new French inspired restaurant Tuesday.

Jean-Robert de Cavel is teaming up with pastry chef and chocolatier, Jen Philippe Solnom, to open French Crust Café, located at 915 Vine Street.

The new eatery will serve breakfast and lunch.

"Jean-Philippe and I have talked for a long about opening a café just like this. So when the space became available, it was the right opportunity to collaborate with my longtime friend, Jean Philippe. Especially because it is so close to the Table" says Cavel.

The café will offer full-service breakfast and lunch and will seat 26 people.

Traditional French pastries will be available, such as croissants and brioche, fruit tarts, soups, sandwiches, quiches and casserole entrees.

French Crust Café will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
