Excellent patisserie

Great for quick lunch / coffee catch ups, conveniently located in the CBD, nice coffees and great patisserie. Also excellent for taking away French style, complex, multi-element cakes at very reasonable prices (around the $38 mark) for sharing by 10 people.

Both the cherry and the apricot Danishes were delicious, as was the jam donut. Good coffee and friendly staff. Lovely outdoor seating under a huge ficus tree.

The sweets are as tasty as they are look. If you want to treat yourself, you can't go wrong by visiting this gorgeous place. Their great coffee compliments their delicious morsels.

I have visited this cafe several times whilst staying at a nearby hotel. The quality of food and drinks was really good, and at a very good price too. It felt like a little piece of Paris in Brisbane! I really enjoyed the hot chocolate drinks and pastries. Others really enjoyed their coffee drinks too. There is also a nice... More

For breakfast pastries and coffee or a light ,limited menu lunch,this ambient cafe is hard to beat. Unless very busy,you are invariably greeted with a "bonjour". The range of beautifully prepared pastries is almost as good as in France itself. The almond croissants are wonderful. You can eat either indoors or outside and orders are brought to your table.

Had the macadamia chocolate mousse cake with creme brûlée centre. So rich but not too sweet. Tried friend's paasionfruit milk chocolate cheesecake which was also nice with different surprise layers inside. The major drawback was the lack of variety of teas. Bread runs out early here so get in before noon if you can for nice bakery items.

I think this is now a Vietnamese café, such a big shame. There used to be lots of French speaking , Belgian, Swiss students working in Le Bon Choix but no more. They were so interesting to talk to and quite charming. Something seems to have changed. Now you get the obligatory bon jour from a 'dead eyed' looking person... More

Le Bon Choix is not quite as quaint as it once was, when all the staff were french and had delightful accents. The charm however, pastries, good coffee and tasty french toast are all still remaining. If you need to meet for business, catch up with friends or park and walk a few blocks away in the CBD. Le Bon... More
