Genuine French boulangerie/patisserie/cafe

This is the place for authentic, artisanal, French baked goods on the north side of South Beach, just steps from Lincoln Road. Good coffee, sandwiches and salad, too. Fair price and very friendly service. You order and pay at the counter, they give you a number to place on the table of your... read more

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was expecting more from the food. It was just ok, nothing special. I ordered a french toast and it seemed to be reheated. It was pricy for what they offered.

We strolled down here from our hotel in search of coffee and pastries. Hubby had the cheese danish and a raspberry beignet. I opted for the quiche of the day, which was mushroom and asparagus. It also came with a nice side salad. We also had some nice lattes. Service was prompt...we were in and out in 25 minutes.

I ordered a baguette with ham and cheese toasted whilst the others ordered breakfast sandwiches. 10 minutes or so after the other received theirs, I am In a line waiting to ask where it is, to be...

Authentic croissants, pain au chocolat, tartelettes, baguettes, and other French breakfast specialties are always delicious and fresh. A variety of sandwiches is also available if you stop for lunch.

Trying to eat healthy while in Miami Beach, and I'm so happy a friend turned me onto this place. Aside from lovely looking decadent pastries of all kinds, they also serve amazing breakfasts and lunches! I had an egg white vegetable omelette every day, served with a small mixed green salad and a piece of crusty bread - delicious! Just... More

The food pastries were decent. My wife's "personal" quiche I suspect was merely reheated than prepared fresh. They had no chocolate croissant left by 11am which I found odd for a French bakery serving breakfast. There is basically no service. You place an order and they bring you the food. That's it. Water. Nope. Refills on coffee. Nope. Checking to... More

While staying at a nearby hotel, we enjoyed La Provence Bakery. Wide variety of baked goods and deli style food. Reasonably priced and friendly. Wish there was more outdoor seating.
