Ok French Bakery

I think there are better French Patisserie in Tana. This one is also quite expensive. But I know many people love it, so make your own call.

Cooking by very good cookers. Maybe one of the bests. Colbert wants to be the highest. In its patisserie, many sugar, many cream, many colors, childrens and women won't resist the pure taste.

Highly rated by travellers and locals alike from what I could see. Long counters containing fabulous looking chocolates and cakes, and also offering superb ice creams. Great value. We ate breakfast of pastries and coffee there each morning in Tana.

This place was a treat after a few months in mainland Africa, where it is usually very difficult to get a good croissant or chocolate. Recommended!

The pastries are to die for and so is the café au lait. Cannot be in Tana and not stop at Patisserie Colbert. Friendly staff and atmosphere.

Oh my god I am melting when I think again about the wonderful pastries in that patisserie! So many times we had the opportunity consuming or buying bread and cakes from there for breakfast or for tea time, and that pastry was a great moment of happiness shared together! The chocolate Colbert cake was the best one among all other... More

A wide selection of all things patisserie!! A carb Nirvana. Croissants were melt in your mouth and buttery. Quiche was full of flavour, without being "eggy" The custard slice was light, rich and not overly sweet. My only negative was that the macaroons were a bit soggy. I will be back!!!
