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...

I joined my mother and her friend for a cup of café au lait (large enough to swim in) and an almond croissant ($2.95) (super nutty and totally delicious) this morning. The ambience is pleasant and sunny with many families and groups of friends, young and not so young. If I were a local, I'd likely be here every Saturday... More

I have never had french food until trying it at Croissant Du Jour, Cedar Rapids. I'd say I just loved it. We went for an early lunch around 11:15. The place was starting to get full and yeah if you are planning to go for lunch don't bother after 2pm. They do need to work on their service though. I... More

This coffee shop creates intrigue only because of their great pastries and well done lunch selections. I particularly enjoy the lobster bisque and club sandwich. Their coffee is only so-so and certainly doesn't seem to be any different than what I get at home, and certainly not reminiscent of a french bistro. The two biggest concerns are the brash service...

I often call in an order for this restaurant during my lunch. It is always ready within 5 minutes. It is true French cuisine. I have never been disappointed by there soup, everything is homemade, fresh!

Food was excellent. My only problem with this place is when you show up for lunch with other people they cannot sit down while you place their order. The staff or I believe the owners are rather rude about everyone must order before they sit down. They are sticklers about this as I have had this happen several times. I... More

We stopped here for lunch, based on trip advisor ratings and we were not disappointed. I had a grilled turkey panini and my wife had the grilles vegetarian sandwich. You order when you walk in, then find seating. A waitress brings your food to you. Very much a local hangout for the post 50 crowd, which we comprise.
