Yummy bars and cookies

Small shop with great food. Especially love the banana bars! They have excellent sandwiches and all of their desserts are so good.

We went this morning and there were only people at two tables. When no one offered to seat us we took a table ourselves (no sign). They then proceeded to ignore us without even a hello from any of the staff and I counted five of them. We left. Never again!

I hate to be the one who dissents, but in all the years Nichole's has been around I have never understood why people rate this so highly. I must agree that the desserts served here ARE better than you can get in most of the restaurants in town, but none of them so good that I've thought about ordering the... More

Nicole's Fine Pastries lives up to its name. Without a doubt the desserts are the finest in town, and have a range of flavors, from creamy, crackly creme brûlée to sweet/ sour lemon bars to berries crowning, well, just about everything! Chocolate is not neglected; it is simply not the only offering. (Try their truffles first!) If you want a... More

It is the only cute, French pastry place in town which offers fine pastries plus lunch with wine! It also offers a wonderful place to just sit and enjoy a coffee/tea and a pastry with a dear friend. A very enjoyable place to be!

Clearly the claim to fame here is all things sweet. There is not a single thing that I've tried that is not outstanding whether you are interested in something tart with lemon, something decadent with chocolate, or something crispy like a biscotti. The scones in the morning, the sandwiches the afternoon, or the cakes either before or after supper are... More

We chose this place for lunch. Its sandwiches were delicious and we even had a "very mid-Western"German-style soup (don't remember the name). The pastriies were very tempting but we were too full! Recommend highly.

Wonderful pastries, cookies and wholesome food - and nice atmosphere. We ended up finding out about a local art fair that evening right outside the restaurant where we met the artists.

Nichole's began as a pastry place with just few tables for people to drink coffee and enjoy one of Nichole's delicious creations. They now serve great lunches and breakfasts in addition to some of Fargo's best baked goods. I had an excellent tuna salad croissant and a nice salad the last time I was there for lunch. When we want... More
