Great French Bakery

This bakery is located in the Shelter Cove Towne Center, within walking distance of Disney's Hilton Head Resort. They had a lot of pastries to choose from, and a good menu of crepes and sandwich items. The place wasn't crowded when we were there around 8am. I liked my quiche and my husband loved... read more

In a great new facility, the French Bakery is marginal in so many ways. We look to three ingredients, and the French Bakery only succeeds in its brick and mortar. The server, Kerry was disinterested and robotic. I wish we had ordered pick up and found a table ourselves. My French Crepes were "whatever" and my wife's Omelet was not... More

Although you can eat there, we just picked up a few items for breakfast. The chocolate twist and the cinnamon twist were the best. Lots of choices, croissants, breads, quiches, patisseries, all looked wonderful. The place was full of locals for lunch, can only assume they offer good lunches on-site.

We found this place by accident, as it sits at the back of Shelter Cove. They have great quiches, crepes, all types of breakfast foods, with pastries to go. We loved it so much we went back the next day. Sit outside when the weather is nice.

ok, this place is crazy good. There are several French-derived items on the menu with a few additional twists and other selections. So I eat plenty of pastry and this is a terrific bakery, fantastic service (thank you Brie), and amazing coffee. Probably best for breakfast or brunch, and the French toast is as good as it looks on the... More

We were able to sit outside as it was a beautiful day. We had French toast made from their fresh baked fruit bread. Wonderful and plenty to eat.

Excellent baked goods, including a very tasty stollen found in December. I should have noted when asked whether I wanted a small (2 person) or large stollen. The large was a stupefying $20. Was it tasty and evocative of Europe? Yes. Did I disclose the cost to my family? NO. Great muffins, scones, etc. Just plan on using your children's... More
