On the day we dined for lunch, I had the roasted vegetable soup, which could have been a meal on its own with some bread and a glass of wine. But I couldn’t resist the crab quiche, and after the first bite, knew I had done the right thing. The quiche was light and fluffy, with a lightly toasted crust on top. Delicious. But that didn’t hold a candle to the fresh peach cobbler we had for dessert, with fresh peaches with a raspberry sorbet on top. Heaven. The prices are average, with some things being slightly overpriced, such as the heirloom tomato salad ($9 for a few tomatoes), but it is generally a good value for freshly prepared food.
Overall, Vincent’s Market Bistro isn’t what I would call a destination spot. It is great if you are in the neighborhood or would like great, fresh takeout. I guess I will have to come up with a good reason to get down that way again so I can experience a little bit of France on a sunny afternoon.
