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

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.

The best croissants in the state. They prepare excellent pastries, too. I always get my birthday cakes from here. The cakes are always outstanding. Their lunch is good , too! Just remember they only accept cash or checks.

Been to this place many times and enjoyed it EVERY time. Custom cakes have been ordered and enjoyed. We stop by for the "goodies". This is not a typical bakery with a bunch of fried gooey stuff. You'll find light airy and delightful pastry. You can get a light lunch there as they have a couple tables by the window.Very... More

The price is high, but it's unique, and he could probably command higher prices in other markets. My only complaint is that I once ordered a birthday cake, and on the day I was supposed to pick it up, they had no cake, and seemed to have lost the order! But if you walk in and choose stuff they have... More

I went to Hattiesburg from Texas on vacation, and was so excited to find a French Bakery. I was hoping to buy freshly baked baguettes, etc., but they don't do that. However, they do offer a nice Napoleon and my friend enjoyed her pastry too. If you've ever been to a bakery in France, you'll be disappointed, but not bad... More
