Weathered, two-tone, brown leather banquettes, linoleum tile floors, fluorescent light fixtures, and paintings of historical Brooklyn lend an old-time diner vibe to this corner café in Carroll Gardens, but the food has a French inflection. The artichoke appetizer, fried with a light batter reminiscent of funnel cakes, comes with a bowl of olive tapenade for dipping, and a portobello-mushroom burger is smeared with creamy goat cheese on a toasted multigrain roll. Unfortunately, the half-chicken is dry and its side of sautéed spinach salty (though the mashed sweet potatoes it comes with almost make up for the missteps). Homemade crème brûlée does justice to the classic version. A sizable front patio strewn with white lights and daily brunch offerings has solidified its status as a local hangout.
