A highlight of our visit to Brisbane was eating many danishes and cakes from Le Bon Choix. Delightful for breakfast, lunch or anytime. Excellent pastry, and terrific service. Every staff member we encountered seemed to have a french accent, which really just added to the enjoyment! Wish we had a patisserie like this at home.

Found Le Bon Choix while staying in a nearby apartment for the weekend in central Brisbane. Had a good coffee and found the staff extremely friendly offering good advise for both their products and nearby services. The real winner was the small deserts we purchased for dinner in our apartment. Simply amazing, I can highly recommend the orange dome desert.... More

We was happy to see the friendly staff trying to welcome us in French, they are friendly. About the pastries they are good for compared to many Australian places (honestly). But for French people you may be a bit disappointed if you was expecting it to be as good as in France! The drinks was really good, for the prices... More

All the food here is lovely, the setting inside and out is very nice, all the staff speak French and are kind. Had a great break here and will definitely come back.

We regular this cafe on a Saturday or Sunday for breakfast, and have never been disappointed. There is a wide range of delightfully appealing food and treats. I do not pretend to be a connoisseur of French food or pastry but I really enjoy this place. The wonderful court yard out the front under the tree is great.

The colours of the cakes and the smell of pasteries with the aroma of coffee was a great place for breakfast...

Love this little patisserie. Hidden just out of the busy hype of the city centre. It's got a great selection and I have never been disappointed. Nice place to go for a coffee and sweet treat.

Everything from the atmosphere, service, quality of food and the coffee was exceptional. Brisbane is very fortunate to have food operation such as this in your city.

As you enter this cafe you are "teleported" to France. Then you are greeted by a French speaking assistant, and you don't have to be fluent in French, English will do just fine. No matter what you order it's cooked to perfection, the pastries, cakes and macaroons. Fragrant coffee cannot be replicated anywhere, honest! It's my little treat every time... More

OK, I am comparing this to the real thing - French patisseries in France and it simply doesn't live up. We went to check it out and will not return. The cakes we sampled were ok but not amazing for $7.50 per slice, much more expensive than similar places in Noosa for example and just not as good. Even my... More
