Beautiful breads and pastries available. Try their French bread sandwich with Brie and French Ham -- you couldn't find better in Paris! The pastries are beautiful, looking forward to trying more...friendly, helpful service. Lovely little place - try it!

This is a small cafe, but everything is wonderful. Once inside I pretend I'm back In Paris. The food is excellent, but the pastries are ou-la-la wonderful! It is even a treat to have coffee and a baguette.

While staying at a nearby Hilton Garden Inn, we discovered Chez Arnaud within walking distance; literally just across the parking lot. Very European in feel and taste! Your taste buds will not be disappointed. It was perfect for brunch on two mornings of our stay. Their pastries are wonderful, their quiche very good too. Enjoyed a wonderful latte with my... More

On the recommendation of a friend, we went to Chez Arnaud. Great French bakery. Tried several of their pastries. While a bit expensive, they are worth it. Did not try their breads, etc., but will in the future. Very nice!

Real French pastries as someone who lives in France I can vouch for it! The 'pain au raisin' was superb plenty of raisins and sort of 1/2 between bread and croissant and a good size too, cakes, tarts, and from time to time 'croche en bouche' what more could you ask for! Well what about 'financiers' and 'cruet a the'... More

Been driving here From Eden Prairie since they opened when I get a yen for authentic French breakfast or treats- and also in between yens!! Voted best baguettes in twin cities and fantastic croissants and quiche. They offer a daily sweet flavored roll also. Lunch is great French sandwiches or a hot entree. They have many refrigerated desserts to eat... More

The options are a bit more 'exotic' than your local dunkin doughnuts but considering the price for the fancy french sounding stuff it wasn't that impressive. I expected European style, not quite so sweet treats. What I got tasted pretty standard American, overly sweet frosting, type stuff. I will go back to try other options since there were several different... More

I have been relatively disappointed with Chez Armaud. It was with great anticipation that my coworkers and I looked forward to the opening. I have been in a couple of times and not been favorably impressed. I have tried to purchase "lunch type fair" and found it quickly picked over, apparently not enough made in anticipation. And what I have... More

If you are getting nothing but pastry you will almost assuredly be happy. But this restaurant is a case of having all the tools and not knowing how to use them properly. Staffing? Training? Every other time you are there you will get terrible coffee. When you order a sandwich you will get a French amount of meat on an... More

First time I have been there. The Macarons were terrible! I know these little delights like the back of my hand and have had many flavors from many Patisserie's these were NOT good at all. Mushy, scant on the fillings and overdone on the artificial flavoring (particularily the lavendar and pistachio) my husband and son actually spit them out! Yes... More
