French food doesn't have to be snobby. barbara's

Barbara's garlic escargot is fabulous. The best I've had in the Valley, bar none.

I originally order the pate thinking I will sample some and take the rest home, but guess what? I devour it all a table. riviera

Cafe Riviera is downright family- and value-oriented. Soup or salad comes with each entree.

A slab of chocolate mousse embedded with cake is served with raspberry sauce.
