This is a great place to meet friends for breakfast, coffee, or lunch. Everything is homemade and delicious. A real Cedar Rapids treasure.

This is a wonderful tea room to visit. The menu is limited, but everything is fresh and inexpensive. I had the turkey club sandwich plus a half cup of lobster bisque soup. My friend had the turkey club and the french onion soup. The croissants were fresh and the service was attentive. We both got tarts for dessert. There is... More

Super cute little place! When my sister couldn't stop raving about the croissants, we decided to go there for lunch. The seating arrangement is a little weird (order first and seat second), but the system works. Once you order at the counter (club croissant sandwich and cup of lobster bisque), then find an empty and elegantly set table. The croissant... More

What a great little place. I would definately drive across town to go back. The food is all homemade and delicious. The pasteries are amazing and the croissants.....mmmmm.....just like the ones they make in Paris. :) The soup of the day has never disappointed and the atmosphere is delightful. A very enjoyable and relaxing experience. I highly recommend. The only... More

Have been dying to try this place after reading all the reviews, and mistakenly drove across town to try one afternoon when they were on Spring Break! So after waiting for them to come back, and finding time to go, I stopped in today and ordered the 1/2 Tuna Nicoise sandwich with a cup of lobster bisque as well as... More

My wife and I stopped by in the late afternoon just for espresso & a sweet. Both were very good. It wasn't crowded, and the friendly owner came out and engaged us is a lovely chat about varied topics. We are glad we stopped by, and will do so again when we are next in Cedar Rapids!

I have been to Croissant du Jour numerous times and have never been disappointed. The food is exceptional and their service is great. A MUST is a bakery good to eat and take home. The croissants melt in your mouth, quiches are just like homemade and bakery items go really fast. My girlfriends and I try to go whenever we... More

This easy to find gem is a favorite. Their croissants are truly "the real thing", flaky and light, melt in your mouth. After ordering at the counter for lunch, your meal is delivered to you (no intercom or name shouting), and a lovely young lady returns periodically to refill coffee. Their creme brulee is delicious. For a departure from the... More

I have enjoyed many outstanding morsels here! The quiche is perfect ~ every single time . The chocolate flourless cake should be illegal it's so good. And another favorite of mine is the apricot pasterie. The atmosphere is charming, the French food is yummy, and the service couldn't be more pleasant . . . well, other than sometimes there is...
