Temptation Awaits

We went in for breakfast and walked out with a box of goodies. I had the vegetarian frittata. The portion was huge so I was only able to eat about half. I also only ate half of my lemon cream croissant, which was also huge (and delicious!). My daughter had the kids pancakes (with berries, bananas... read more

I've lived in Saint Louis for years and had never heard of this wonderful place. It just so happened that a friend from out of town was looking for a good place to buy macaroons, and La Bonne Bouchee was at the top of Google's list. It's literally a two minute drive from my house, and as soon as I... More

I am a frequent guest but not as frequent as I would like. The Chef is a fantastic baker, as his pastry cases in front easily attest, but I truly enjoy the French cafe atmosphere and menu. Please try the seafood in pastry offerings. They are among my favorite dishes ever. Most mornings I have the quiche, either Lorraine or... More

This was our second visit for breakfast and we were not disappointed. My husband and I shared the Frittata and topped off the meal with chocolate croissants. The food was tasty and hot. The service was quick and friendly. The experience brought back happy memories of Paris. We will return for sure, next time we are in town.

Outstanding people and pastries. I love the variety. They make everything festive and fun. Ordered several cakes and all were great. Good location and hours.

I've been here before and wasn't totally impressed. This time really sealed the deal. Our server was definitely not interested...to the point of being rude. My friends and I were here for brunch. Everything is basically a la carte. You do get a side of roasted potatoes when you order an omelette. Nothing else. If you substitute you pay extra.... More

Food was good but wait staff was really slow and not very attentive to our needs. Had to request dessert menu and ask the table be cleaned off! Not good!

Wonderful food and Bakery. Have been there several times for lunch. The French onion soup is to die for along with the wonderful hard rolls. Every item I have tried was delicious. The bakery has a lovely assortment of all kinds of French pastries and cakes, some with fresh fruit. Well worth the stop.

Almost like being back at a Paris sidewalk cafe. During the holidays the decor is especially beautiful. Don’t miss the large Nativity display outside the windows facing Olive! The Chef’s pastries are legendary!
