Our Wallingford hosts drove over here because the highly acclaimed neighborhood bakery had changed hands and in their opinion had taken a significant step down. Too bad they now have to drive to get an average croissant. Le Fournil had great looking deserts in the case (and baguettes in the baskets) but the breakfast pastries were pretty limited to the...

Time was, I would have said this was a pretty good French Pâtisserie. Now it has expanded and seems like a little pastry factory with mediocre everything. The quiches are still good, but the croissant and pain au chocolat are closer to those at the supermarket than to those in France. The Millefeuilles and Fruit Tartes look as pretty as... More

Thank goodness for this little piece of France in my neighborhood. Though its tiny, the food packs a mighty authentic taste of France! My favorites are any of the quiches or the fruit tartes. Make some new friends at the long tables that everyone can share and sit, back, eat and enjoy while pretending you are at a sidewalk cafe... More

I come to Le Fournil every time I am in town, always hoping to be impressed by the French pastries. Sadly, I never am. However, I always enjoy their lunch special which I think is a really decent meal for $8.99. It includes a nice big sandwich or salad or quiche with a 12 oz drink and a dessert of... More

Love the chocolate tart. Ordered it twice for birthday celebrations! The chocolate eclair is delicious too.

We tried this place 8AM on a Saturday morning and it was overflowing with local residents.... A sure sign it has excellent quality and service. I must concur this establishment is among the best anywhere in the world for pastries and coffee. I have eaten croissants in Italy and in France and they are equally as fresh and tasty here....

Um, this was a major letdown. The pastries (almond croissant and pain au chocolat) are not good. They are very doh-y and not light at all. My friend and I were there for lunch after having traveled to France and it wasn't really possible to compare the pastries to those you can get anywhere in France. The salad, on the... More

Nicholas Pare is a god in the flour world! His little bakery makes and supplies Seattle with some of the best French delicacies this side of the Atlantic. They must be eaten to understand how incredible his bread, pastries, sandwiches and other fare are, as words alone don't do them any justice.
