What a great place to have a wonderful coffee.

Best place we have found for a decent coffee in the woodlands. The food is great for lunch and the pastries and cakes Devine.

Omelet was very good, went with friends. Being a French Bakery, not a big selection of pastries. I would not go back

Good croissants, but Common Bond bakery items are definitely much better even though it's down on Westheimer. I've been here twice, I think it's okay and overrated in my opinion.

We come almost every weekend to get breakfast here or to go and always we feel pampered. This is a family and local business, everyone in the family has a special roll: Dad is the Chef, mom and son take care of the customers every single day the same way, just excellent. They offer French dishes as well as paninis... More

A true French bakery! Love this place. The Palmiers and Eclairs are excellent! The Palmiers are light, crispy and ever so buttery. I highly recommend the mocha. This mocha isn't overly sweet like ones you get at Starbucks or other coffee shops. It has the right balance. If you come on a Saturday mor ing come when it opens as... More

Run by a French family, you can find all your favorites here. The pastry counter is always stuffed with tarts, macarons, croissants, palmiers, etc. I particularly like the pear tart. The breakfast menu is omelettes, eggs benedict (several variations), and pancakes. Of course, you could just get a croissant and coffee, too. The eggs benedict du elysee is my favorite... More

We returned from Paris two weeks ago and missed the French cafes and bakeries, so we turned to our bustling little corner of Paris: the charming Gourmet Bakery & Cafe in The Woodlands, TX. Order an authentic buttery croissant with your smooth organic cafe au lait to make you swoon and utter “Oui, oui!” a’la Meg Ryan. I’m not making... More

Having moved recently from the vibrant med center area, this was a huge disappointment. Service was slow and the crepe we ordered was...well to put it politely, not crepe like at all. Baker/chef needs baking tips.

I'm reviewing only their breakfast. My wife and I had omelets, each different. They were among the worst we have ever eaten. The eggs were laid out like pancakes and hard and tough. Coffee was very good, bacon was acceptable -- in fact, everything we ate was fine, except the omelets, which were the main feature of our breakfast. Paris... More

I have traveled all over Europe and visited more French pastry and bakery shops than I could remember. This little French corner of The Woodlands has taken me back to France. Even the staff has a french accent. Great food too.
