French Onion Soup better than Famous Barr's

The atmosphere was lovely decorated for Christmas. We all had the onion soup and it lived up to other reviews. Loaded with melted cheese, nice and hot and with a very rich broth. Only had the cup but as rich as it was that was plenty. We also had the half order of the seafood crepe. It was... read more

Not to be missed breakfast or at the very least the Belgium Waffle! Cooked to perfection and served with REAL whipped cream you don't even need butter or syrup - it is that good!

This was our first time here. We were pretty excited because we had heard good things from others. The food was pretty good. Honestly, it was probably better than pretty good. But our waitress was awful. She was slow, rude and inattentive. She was much more interested in socializing with another table. When placing our order, one in our party... More

The food is great, but the food can't make up for the horrible manners. In my experience, the waitress was nice. In the bakery the lady just skipped over me. Not Satisfied! I didn't even buy anything because the service was so bad! I recommend dinner take-out (that is it). Don't come if you want to have a good day!

We attended a French Class Dinner Out at La Bonne Bouche and the food was really good. The Croque Monsieur was loaded with ham and cheese. The Crescent Jambone was also really good. The bouche a la poulet was a puff pastry filled with chicken and mushroom sauce. The Napoleons were also really good.

Lots of croissant choices. Every croissant we had was good. They were huge. It fills up on Sunday morning so we went around 9:00 am while we could still walk in and be seated. Friendly and professional staff Nice atmosphere.

I ordered the quiche lorraine nad my dining partner ordered the belgiun waffle, we also split a ham and cheese croissant. She dropped off two hard rolls with butter to start us... More

OMG, stop here if you're in the area - and if you're not, then go out of your way to get into the area! They have a huge selection in their bakery, and the cakes are spectacular. I personally love the lemon cremec cakes, but I've had several others, and they're all heavenly...you can get full cakes, or if you... More

One of our favorite places to eat breakfast! And Oh My...the pastries are not only beautiful, but delicious! I love the eggs benedict, and the frittata was a hit! Only one word to sum up this eatery...YUMMY!

Great restaurant, and don't miss the Sunday brunch! A visit to the pastry counter is a must and where can you hear French being spoken by an occasional customer and sales people.
