Oh me oh my the buttery croissants are wonderful!! Everything is baked fresh daily and when they're out they're out until the next day. Wonderful baked goods and breads. Give them a try

I have visited this bakery twice, only twice because I don't live in the area. The owner, Oliver is a very nice man. His works of art are simply delish. Anything from the bagettes to his creme brulee are phenomenal. This is the place to go when you want to impress someone with desserts. Truly French!

Took a work associate out for lunch . We both chose the broccoli goat cheese quiche. The flavors were excellent. Delicate crust. The restaurant is mostly self serve but the food is well prepared

Definitely the best French Bakery in the Rio Grande Valley. I couldn't begin to tell you how many time we've been there, no more that 3 times in a week. We've introduced 3 other couples to Olivier's for lunch. I have personally had every quiche he makes, and several of his sandwiches. We always have some kind of dessert, I'm... More

The decor was quaint with lace valances on the windows.The owner was very hospitable and spoke with a pleasant French accent. The spinach and salmon quiche was SOOOO YUMMY with wonderful pastry and cheesy goodness!!! And, the chocolate croissant was sinfully delicious! MUST GO THERE more often!

An excelent option if you want to get away of the traditional food you get at hotels and restaurants. A true french bakery. The pastries are all that you can expect from a french bistro.

We got to Oliver's after 4 days on the breakfast buffet offered at our hotel. We were a party of eight and the owner was there to take our order and serve us. Chocolate snails are a must for the chocoholics in the family. Croissants were excellent. Croque Monsieurs were great and so very Parisian. The whole place is decorated... More

Went here upon the recommendation of a friend and tried the chocolate snails (pastry shaped like a snail, not the actual animal) and nearly proposed to the chef. So, so good! I bring all my out-of-town guests here now when they visit and life is better over a hot pastry and freshly ground coffee.
