Decent French Cafe Inspired Food

We eat at La Bonne Bouche a couple times a year. The Croque Monsieur is good with bechamel sauce over the ham and cheese on white bread. I always opt for the French Onion soup for my side. The soup is light on onions with a moderate beef base. The ham and cheese croissant is similar to the Croque... read more

Sunday brunch has become a wonderful weekly event. Summer dining is especiially pleasant on the beautiful patio area. No traffic noise. Just flowers, umbrella tables, fountain, soft music. Lovely environment well planned out with comfortable furniture. No plastic allowed! Food exceptional as always. July 4th celebrated with flags & patriotic music.

Met the girls for lunch and we could have stayed all day each enjoying others company. I had the small salad with killer French Onion soup and crusty bread. The broth was not thin, it was thick, rich and silky. Lots of cheese, croutons and tasty onions. I got the quiche which was ok - wasn't very hot and the... More

This place used to be our special treat, an instant trip to France for a bowl of soup, a slice of quiche, and a decadent dessert. This time everything was just a bit off: soup was super salty (even for french onion!), and the quiche was greasy. The desserts were still divine, but it makes it harder to justify stopping... More

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, whipped cream, and sausage)... 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.
