Cafe Chloe promises to be where San Diego East Village charm meets international Paris chic. On the other side of Atlantic, bistros are intended for resting and reflecting, reading, sharing conversation, and enjoying good company. On our side of the Atlantic, Chloe is no exception to European ideals. Inside, the restaurant is casual and relaxed, and patrons might don jeans, tees, and baseball cap before a sporting event. But these guests would feel equally comfortable dressing up for a cup of Joe before clubbing in the Gaslamp. Breakfast at Cafe Chloe, served Tuesday through Friday 7-11am, includes fruit plates, several egg dishes, and a salmon graviax crepe torte. Lunch includes steak gorgonzola mousse and cipollini onions, smoked trout and apple salad, and macaroni, pancetta and gorgonzola gratin. For dinner, consider the steak and frites, mussels with saffron broth, or lamp chops with Israeli couscous, and roasted veggies. Entrees, range in price from $14-25. Finally, for those days when your appetite is on the light side, Cafe Chloe's offers “small bites” like the pomme frites with a trio of dips, fromage plate with honeycomb and house-made compote, and an ahi nicoise plate with anchoiade dipping sauce. For those that like to go out to tea and coffee in groups and don't like to fuss with the bill details, you can try "Urban Tea" at Cafe Chloe, which offers an assortment of sandwiches, homemade cakes, cookies and sweets, and a pot of tea or a glass of prosecco all for a reasonable price per person. Regardless of the size of your party or occasion you're celebrating, Cafe Chloe is verstaile to meet the needs of all guests.
