This small jewel has incredible french bread and desserts worth breaking that diet for. The sandwiches are also pretty amazing. The coffee and lattes are delicious and just the pick me up for a lazy afternoon. The best part is walking off the calories in the Village with so many cute shops.

Stop for lunch and ordered the lunch special of Salmon Quiche, Cesar Salad and Ice Tea for $11:00 it is my guess that the Salmon was from a can. The quiche was missing any spice and had a bland taste. The salad was nothing special just a plate of greens with dressing and no parmesan cheese. I tried the peach... More

I love this place. By 6 am they have hot and fresh baguettes and croissants of various types. Their chocolate croissants are devilishly good. You really can't go wrong and they somehow manage to keep everything fresh throughout the day. Many bakeries are just inedible by noon but these guys do such a great job of keeping everything stocked and... More

Stopped into the Croissant Brioche on a sweltering Sunday afternoon to get a reprieve from the heat and revitalize my shopping soul. Found a variety of attractive bakery items: enough to make the selection decision a difficult one! Ended up with a mouth watering chocolate eclair, one of the best I've ever had! I was also delighted to see a... More

Had lunch here and it was packed. Service good and friendly. Suspect they are liked for pastries though I had none as I can't eat gluten. Lunch offerings were limited with very small portions. My Provence salad was a very odd combo of ingredients with a very off putting taste. I only ate it so as not to offend my... More

For a place that touts itself as a French bakery, the chocolate croissant was very disappointing. Tough and dry. The staff claims the pastries are all baked fresh each day, which must be true because I was not offered a replacement or alternative when I complained. They said putting it in the oven to warm would help, so I handed... More

I can't find a better cup of coffee in Houston if one orders the latte. It's deep and rich and served in a wonderful big cup. Served with one of the delicious danishes or a piece of freshly made quiche, or perhaps fresh bread and butter and jam...this is a simple breakfast at its best.
