C'est si bon!!

Huge variety of pastries, petit fours, cinnamon rolls and more. Small store in a strip mall. Go early for best selection. Pricey but good!

I ordered an almandine cake for my friends birthday and we all loved it. The flavor was amazing with the fruit on top and the edible white chocolate flowers were also incredible. My next birthday cake better be from here (;

The place is tiny but efficient and the pastries are mar-vel-ous. This is not a place for the dieter, but any gourmand will have a glorious time. Treats range from small mice and scones to big cakes, with lovely sandwiches in between. The best coffee it town!

Stopped by for some of their wonderful breakfast treat items. I purchased the lightest, flaky cinnamon rolls that you'd ever wish to throw your lips around. You know, Sometimes I forget how exciting the smell of this place and the taste of these treats. Probably just as good for me or I'd weigh about 400 pounds. Pretty good coffee too.... More

The best breakfast and pasties in town. This place is worth the stop to have your cup of coffee, breakfast, lunch or pastries. Custom cakes made to order. The best King Cake in the area.

Everything they serve at C'est La Vie is incredible. The plain croissants are as good as I have eaten anywhere and the almond croissants are moist and just melt in your mouth. For breakfast, they serve delightful omelets to go with the pastries - the one with swiss, cheddar, and feta is my favorite, but you can get them with... More

The 4 star because I do believe it's pretty pricey and there is not very much to choose from. We got pretty much 1 of everything we love food lol. I was blown away by their eclair yumm.

Fabulous pastries!!! The almond croissants are incredible and the fruit tarts as beautiful as they are tasty. We always get our birthday cakes here and usually go for the chocolate mousse cake. At Christmas time, the yule logs are stunning and delicious, as well.
