I was introduced to this bakery on a previous trip to St. Louis, so I couldn't leave town without getting a little snack. It really is quite a treat to go inside and see all the colorful macaroons. (I tried a couple on my first visit but since they don't make them in house, I didn't get any this trip.)... More

I had the salad, roast beef sandwich and strawberry tart. All were good. Service and atmosphere were great for a lunch with the girls. I look forward to visiting again.

I am a lover of all pasteries and especially cakes, This place is typical of what you see on Paris streets, in that the their colorful (almost OCD-looking) displays of desserts look like artwork! I almost hyperventilated trying to make decsions on which treats to select. I took a boxful home and my favorite was the lemon-raspberry cake. If you... More

You have to go! YOU HAVE TO GO. Try anything. It's all good. I love their La Bonne Bouchee aux Crevettes. I mean, I love it so much that I rarely get anything else. But their Quiche is awesome and so are many other entrees. I do like their salads and soups as well. And then you of course have... More

Delicious! We had our breakfast there and the chocolate croissants were so good as in France (we are French). The apple tarte was amazing and the macarons perfect. Plus, the boss has been incrediblely friendly with us. Wonderful bakery and patisserie!

I was craving a good baguette, and thought I'd try one here. I stopped by today and I was disappointed from the moment I grabbed the limp baguette-shaped bread off the counter. I was hoping that a few minutes in the oven would resurrect it, but I was mistaken. I hadn't been here in a long time and I doubt... More

Went here to pick up a birthday cake but there were too many great choices to choose just one. So we decided to get seven different slices instead. Loved the German chocolate mousse the best but they were all delicious. In my dreams I wished they came in a low calorie version.

Visited La Bonne Bouchee for business lunch on July 29th - never again! Was seated inside but told we were open to moving outside if the noise was too loud. It was and we did - big mistake. After around 15 minutes we flagged the hostess down to indicate that we had not seen a server. She indicated that there... More

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.
