If you want to buy a great loaf of bread made the old fashioned way this is the place to go. You can choose from a large assortment of freshly made breads, have a pastry and coffee or a nice sandwich.

I am surprised by the good to great ratings of this restaurant. I have tried two or three times and have been disappointed each time. Today I decided to try the chicken salad over lettuce that seemed to get rave reviews on trip advisor. I couldn't even tell that it was chicken salad. It was mush/babyfood consistency on top of...

I was in Hilton Head for a week and a half. This was one of the first places we went for breakfast. The quiche was the best I've ever had. Their "no name" soup was excellent. We bought cranberry/apricot and A cheese bread to take home. We also went on my last day in Hilton Head... I took a loaf... More

It is remarkable, indeed, for a continental bakery to be located on Hilton Head Island. The bakery was founded by a French couple, years ago, and it is now owned by a Polish family, with the father functioning as the principle baker. I am not aware of a bakery within hundreds of miles where you could find raisin brioche, In... More

Everything is baked fresh daily. Love the orange cranberry bread. . Sandwiches and homemade soups are a lunchtime treat.

Tis a delightful sunny day on Hilton Head today, but not quite warm enough to enjoy the sun on the French Bakery’s patio. There is no mistaking Hilton Head for Paris or even a small French town. We have been visiting the French Bakery for years, and always find the menu, service, and ambience to be superior. It is pleasant... More

We have never been to France, but this is probably a good attempt to catch the nature of bakery cafes there. They do have a courtyard for dining, though it is in a strip mall, not a beautiful square. Baked items are great, the cranberry bread is excellent especially. Good desserts, scones, turnovers, rolls etc. Husband had turkey on bagette,... More

I have eaten here many times and have always loved the quiche that is offered. I decided to order whole quiches for take out to serve at a holiday brunch at my home. They were beautiful, fresh and delicious, I barely had any left over my guests loved them so much. Would do this again in a heartbeat, I could... More
