Amazing! You just have to go and try everything. Macaroons are perfect, chocolate chiffon cake so delicate, espresso caramel torte is decadent, tarts so fresh, croissants so buttery.....need I say more? This is our favorite spot to spot and snag a dessert for home or enjoy there with an end of night espresso. Love that this place exists in EL.

When I visit my daughter in Lansing, we generally have lunch at the Leaf Salad Bar then come here for dessert. Everything has been delicious. Lemon tart, fruit tart, chocolate mousse, macarons are the ones we have tried. Can't wait to go back. If you love French pastry, this is the place to go!

This coffee shop reminds me of the wonderful European coffee shops. The pastries and coffee are excellent. You'll be tempted to take two pastries. And you must!!

There are not many European style coffee shops in central Michigan. This one is quite nice and pleasant. The cakes and breakfast pastries are very good, and there are many choices.

I loved the pastries and great espresso. There was a nice variety of cakes, eclairs, and small desserts. A nice end to a nice dinner at nearby Sansu.

I adore this place. It's go-to place for order cakes for any occasions, and they have the best green tea cake! Just remember to reserve 2 days prior to your event if you want something special (bigger cake/special flavor).

This is clearly the best pastry and coffee shop in the area. Real french pastries are their specialty. Some items here are way above the standard coffee shop fare. My only quibble is with the bored-looking, auter customers, who sometimes are also a bit messy. Many foreign students visit here also, which makes it both more interesting, and likely for... More

It's a big hangout for studying students but personally I am not thrilled by the baked goods. European style gateaus, genoise style. And my pet peeve is that they actually charge more for a large size tea than a small size tea. Seriously? To give me more hot water? They claim that the tea bag is larger...but honestly its a...

Chapelure is the best coffee house in E. Lansing, if not in all of Mid-Michigan. Just moved here from a major city and I appreciate a great cup of coffee (not always easy to find here). Friendly staff who remember me every time I come in, excellent and always fresh coffee, and unbelievable pastries. My favorite is the Jamando, a... More
