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.

First impression was no parking spots available which made me to think, ok this place must be delicious! Got in and lucked out by getting a table for 4 right away. It took a little while to get our order in but the waitress who was handling the entire floor was super busy but super nice and helpful. She had... More

Having enjoyed many lunches in the company of this restaurant, I wish to share what I think of their food. From the fresh bread used to the soups and salads, the tastes are always the best where you can tell high quality ingredients are not the exception but the rule. Thanks to the owner and staff, hope to see you... More

This place came highly recommended by a pastry chef we know in Nashville. So, while vacationing, we decided to venture out and give it a try. Wow, we loved it...such a cute place. They have such delicious homemade pastries and desserts, and it's family owned. We also loved the coffee drinks. This was such a treat. If you're in the... More
