My husband and I had a day off so we decided to give Bon Appetit a try. I ordered the smoked turkey and roast beef on their homemade croissant and my husband got the same on focaccia. With the first bite we both knew the cafe would be a new addition to our small rotation. The bread tasted so fresh... More

This is one of the hidden jewels on the Gulf Coast. It is family owned and operated. the food is outstanding. ..They make all their own breads and pasteries. The food here is definately 5 star. I have introduced many a person to the food and everyone stated they would come back

What a wonderful place for lunch..!! The soup was delicious .. with the best chicken salad sandwich. Very friendly staff. What a treat to top it off with any choice from the freshly baked pastries.. Home made .. pastries .. The server was most helpful to "walk" us through the many choices, taking time to explain any question we had.... More

What's there not to like? Freshly baked pastries for a great price. TI have yet to leave with something I don't find amazing. I don't bother going elsewhere for my desserts.

FWB is not a mecca of fine dining, so it is always nice to find a diamond in the rough. I believe this is one of them. As the title refers, this is a French bakery, and they have a good variety of sweet pastries, as well as a multitude of french breads. (you can download the menu from above)... More

Decided to go to Bon Appetit because of the reviews I read here. We needed to pick up some early, early morning breakfast treats for our drive back to Tampa the next day. Croissants were awesome! (Chocolate and plain). We were there at noon to pick out our "snacks" but the place was packed for lunch. Didn't look at a... More

We found Bon Appetit on Tripadvisor before traveling to Fort Walton Beach. Very much worth a visit. My wife and I shared an eclair, best we ever had. Their deli selection, baked goods, and pastries all looked great. We got some scones and a cinnamon roll to go, all very good, highly recommended.

Very nice options for lunch--chicken salad is great. Best part though is all the pastries to choose from. Wide variety of great little French desserts and snacks, beautifully made and presented. We liked it so much we went twice for lunch. It's a little out of the way but definitely worth the trip and a good value for the quality.

While vacationing in Fort Walton Beach we found this great little bakery. I originally went in for just bread, but found not only bread, but also fantastic pastries! The bread was just perfect. Just like the bread in bakeries in France; a perfect crust on the outside with a soft and airy interior. The bread was simply perfect. The next... More
