Amazing find in East Lansing, MI.

We were transported to France in this gem of a bakery and coffee shop. The breakfast quiches and pastries were not only beautiful, but scrumptious. The cakes looked picturesque, although we only shared a slice of Strawberry Shortcake, which was melt in your mouth deliciousness. A "don't miss" in my... read more

Pricey pastry was my initial impression. They need to have more than one cash register when people have to wait 6 to 10 minutes in line before ordering drinks. The items we tried were good but not super great. Will think twice before going back. Not overly impressed.

Unimpressed. Servers waited on rude customer that stormed through, even though my friend and I entered and were in line before him. Poor attention to customer service! Pricey tiny cheesecake!!! Good, but not delicious! (People complain about pricing at Disney World, but the French Bakery at EPCOT is far better and cheaper!). I asked for a brochure on tray or... More

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).
