the best...especially ashley!

Simply the best bakery. Wonderful variety of sandwiches, soups (homemade) and salads. Service is both friendly and efficient. Price are more than fair. But, the variety of pastries and the way the look and taste is just spectacular.

The waitress made no attempt to smile and half apologized for the long delay before taking our order. The soup was tepid and the sandwich was sadly lacking in meat. Next time, if I bother to go again, I'll buy a french roll, take it home and make a real sandwich with more than a measly amount of meat in... More

Thank you so much for taking time and reviewing our establishment! I am so sorry you did not get the quick service you expected when you arrived. I'm glad to hear that she attempted to apologize sometimes being a waitress can be overwhelming. Cheri is usually quite coureteous. I wish you had informed us about the soup, so we could... More

Ate here a week ago and enjoyed a sandwich stuffed with ham and cheese. Came here again and ordered the same sandwich a few days later. Received a paltry amount of ham in my sandwich and an excessive amount of lettuce. Overheard the waitress telling her friend they were running out of ham and cheese. So, here we have a... More

Thank you for taking time to review our establishment. I'm sorry your second visit was not what you expected. We make a baked ham & cheese croissant. We also prepare sandwiches to your specifications, which could include ham (quarter pound of meat) and cheese (of your choice) When you overheard the waitress mention that we were running out of ham...

This is the place to go for desserts. Really nice place to stop and enjoy a coffee and small breakfast.

I take friends there for lunch and they always love it. Fresh food and the baked goods, what's not to love? However, I usually stick to lunch and maybe take home some bread. Yes, they have hummus. Their sandwiches are tasty and filling. The servers are very nice and I never feel rushed, even though they get packed at lunch... More

I met my fiancé here for lunch & it blew me away! As a Fort Walton Beach native, I regret that I had not been going here for years! The sandwiches are other-worldly & a seat here is in high demand. It is a quaint - not uppity - cafe on Mary Esther Cutoff that if you aren't there at... More

We needed lunch between jobs and I've never tried it here. To have more variety, we split a couple platters. The Mezze was mostly meats and cheese and did not disappoint. The Mediterranean had dolmathes, Tabouleh, and Hummus. Service was very good. All the pastries in the case looked too good - I had to limit it to a couple... More

That is the only complaint anyone could have on Bon Appetit: wish they were open longer... or earlier for breakfast! They have wonderful lunches, with delightful choices. Soup and half a sandwich (any of them!) is my favorite. Friendly staff and clean and charming. Love going there!

This small cozy and very friendly cafe/bakery has the most wonderful fresh croissants and pastries ! Large meaty sandwiches or pastries , and homemade soups tempt the tastebuds for breakfast or lunch five days a week.

I love this place. It's charming and cozy and the pastries are oh so delicious. The people that work there have always been very nice and helpful. I have no complaints. If I could go every day I would :)
