The staff was pleasant and it was nice to sit on their front porch on busy Duval Str and watch the people go by but I was disappointed that the "French" bakery had so ordinary pastries. My cappuccino was served in a Styrofoam cup...gaaah!

We had a fruit/yogurt parfait that hit the spot....plain yogurt and lots of fresh berries. Also had eggs and yummy seasoned potatoes (a bit spicy). We tried several of the pastries and thought everything was great. Prices were fair for key west. Staff were friendly. Food was served in a reasonable amount of time. Outside seating was shady and breezy.

We were pleasantly surprised by the diverse menu which even appealed to me (I am against all breakfast foods in general). The gallettes (buckwheat pancakes with a number of choices for fillings) were delicious, and our party was very happy with each of their choices. Don't miss the eclairs in the bakery!

Me and my wife love this spot. We usually grab some pastries and coffee and people watch the passers by on Duvall. Price is right and a military discount makes a win win for us!

The bakery case is filled with delicious looking pastries. Three of us chose various pastries costing over $20. The chocolate croissant had barely a chip size piece of chocolate and the raspberry croissant was the same. The pastries lacked the flakiness we anticipated. We will not return.

Excellent breakfast and we saw many food items that looked very good as they were delivered to other tables. Nice little patio space. Had a dessert tart too, why not??

If you need to relax after a long day in Key West or need a good start, go here. They have a nice area to people watch or you can sit outside in the shady deck. The food is very good if you need a quick bite and coffee after a long night in Key West!

I visited the pastry shop on recommendation of one of the locals. The display looked wonderful. I had a strawberry tart and a spinach & feta croissant along with chai. I was happy that the server gave me a small taste of the chai to see if it was strong enough, because it was very weak. When it was served... More
