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.

We enjoyed their raisin brioche, chocolate croissant, apricot scone, and iced lattes. Cute place, indoor and outdoor seating.

We LOVE this place! Its pastries are to die for! We make a special trip here at least twice each stay and get several boxes of yummy treats! Not to be missed!! I think it is by far the best bakery on the island.

Who could imagine that on the island of Hilton Head you would discover a French bakery and not in name only. The original French owners have long departed, and the bakery is now owned by a Polish family, the father of whom, is the principal baker. You could imagine yourself being somewhere in France upon entering the bakery, and I... More
