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

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).

Warning: don't visit this place if you are on a diet! The pastries are amazing! Croissants are unbelievably scrumptious. It has the ambient of a European cafe, small, private. Everything we have tried has been delicious. Highly recommended.

This is my favorite coffee shop in the Lansing area, the pastries and coffee are delicious. I am not a huge fan of the cakes though.
