The French Bakery and Courtyard Cafe is worth a try. Overlook the run-down shopping center that time has clearly passed by, and you will find the restaurant tucked in the back with several outdoor cafe tables. The breads and pastries are very authentic, and the croque monsieur is extremely well done. Make sure to order a chocolate croissant. The warm... More

I don't usually write reviews about coffee, but I stopped in here recently just for a cup of coffee and I can honestly say it was the worst coffee I have ever had. And, $2+ for what tasted like a hot cup of water with cream. Shame on them for trying to stretch their coffee costs this far. Good pastries,... More

The croque monsieur was delicious. Just the right size. Had a napoleon for dessert which was a little too sweet for my taste but the blueberry cream cheese croissant was excellent. Had beautiful homemade breads, scones, and other French pastries on display.

I'm a baker and I always seek out dessert when traveling. I was looking for really good pastries for breakfast and gave this bakery a try....twice. The cinnamon bun was okay, but unfortunately the other pastries I tried did not impress. I won't revisit.

I have not noticed a difference in the last year or so like other reviewers. This is a good place for a sandwich, quiche or pastry. Good coffee and decent service. Portions not huge but quite adequate. Closed on Sundays and not open for dinner. Certainly a recommend.

My husband and I found this little cafe for lunch a year ago while we were in Hilton Head and the people are so nice that we wanted to go back and support their restaurant. It's not an easy restaurant to find because it's in the back of the Pineland Station shopping center. The tables and decor feel a little... More

I went to this bakery with my mother in law. We purchased four chocolate croissants, a tuna sandwich and a ham croissant. We both ate our sandwiches there which were excellent. Then the next day the four of us ate our chocolate croissants. They were out of this world. Just like they are in France. Would highly recommend this place!... More

Went with 4 friends on a bike ride and ended up having lunch at this local cafe. Place your order at the cashier. We all had something different for lunch - we sat outside and they brought our lunches to us. It was just about closing time, but they accommodated us as if they were in no hurry to close.... More

My friend and go to the French Bakery often just for a time to get away for some very good, but elegant food.
