I love pastries and French cuisine! The dessert options are endless to take home. I absolutely love this place. I met the owner once, years ago he'd go around from table to table ensuring customer satisfaction. It's amazing to see all the differents desserts made on site.

The pastries here are excellent and most of the food is very good as well. The eggs Benedict, ham and Swiss croissant, and French onion soup are standouts.

The eggs benedict maybe the best ever. The hollandaise sauce was truly home made and OUTSTANDING ! The French bread and croissant were awsome. This an established restaurant and bakery that I forgot about. I AM BACK.

Took my daughters here for lunch and enjoyed delicious french onion soup, salad, huge croissant sandwiches filled with the best chicken salad I've had in ages & rich desserts. Had to stop at the bakery on our way out, for a box of macaroons, hand picked out of a choice of dozens of flavors. What a treat! The service was... More

We've been to La Bonne Bouchee for breakfast (and it is excellent), but this time we took guests for lunch. The French Onion Soup is easily the best I have had, a rich soup, tasty onions, and lots of cheese. Among us, we enjoyed the Salad Nicoise, Croque Monsieur, some sort of seafood in pastry, and the pick two. The... More

Really, driving up to La Bonne Bouchee you don't have high expectations for the restaurant. It's located in a strip mall and doesn't look like much from the outside -- then you step indoors. The bakery cases are the first thing you see and everything looks beautiful and delicious from the cute cookies to the colorful macarons to the eye-popping... More

One of my offices is rather close to La Bonne-Bouchee, but somehow I never seem to go there. Today I had lunch with my office staff and found that it had expanded in size significantly. I'm very glad that we went there; we had an excellent meal. I had a tuna salad sandwich and the ladies enjoyed a quiche and... More

French bistro ambiance, courteous service and great food, The onion soup is to die for...The quiche du jour is made by a patisserie chef, breads, pastries, cakes are sculptures and paintings with fresh fruit and whipped cream. Thank you to Olivier for a outstanding restaurant.
