The first thing to know about Chloe’s French Café in Santa Rosa is that it is in a really odd location – it’s tucked into the bottom of an office building in Santa Rosa. The second thing to know, they are only open Monday through Friday. Neither of these things deter the throngs of people I see there every time I go. And why is that? Because the food is great! And the people who work in that office are extremely lucky.
I always get the Croque Monsieur at Chloe’s. It’s a grilled ham and cheese sandwich made with thick white bread filled with ham, cheese and a sweet Dijon sauce. The top is drenched with béchamel sauce and broiled. On the side are what I think are homemade pickles. It’s probably fairly obvious, but it’s not a diet meal by any means. One time I went here after running 13 miles. I think I might have come out even.
If you still have room for dessert, give the Napoleon a try. Bon Appetit!
