Quick lunch

We went in to get a fast lunch so could make a tour time. I got a sandwich and my husband had the Quiche. Both were very good. A bit time consuming paying at the counter. We came back after the tour and had desserts, very nice. All the food was excellent.

Truly impressive offerings, as good as we remember from France. Charming atmosphere and good service. Try the savory crepes and as many pastries as you dare.

Have been going here for 30 years and counting. A Plaza staple that does not disappoint. No glitz, no glamour but always FRESH. You don't get day old or stale here unlike other bakeries. They make what they sell and they can sell out early.

We were a big flagged from a morning of tourism and ducked into this little shop for some iced coffee…and then, of course, a crepe, because the smell was pretty much irresistible. Between the three of us it was rich enough to make us a little dizzy, so we were glad of the coffee that helped get us through the... More

Authentic French pasteries just outside the La Fonda Hotel! Go early for the best selection! Small café that feels like you are eating in Paris. Excellent service. One note - no credit cards accepted; cash only.

Stopped in for lunch and was seated right away although not a large establishment. Quiche Lorraine was excellent as was the Napolean. Toughest decision is which dessert to choose. Why go to a French restaurant and not eat dessert?

Nice casual atmosphere here, it's a small place but attached to a hotel, so watch out; tables seem to run out at busy times. My advice: whatever your taste, be it sweet or savoury or meaty or cheesy, order a crepe. Really delicious and unusual. Personally, I find the pastry a bit uninteresting (compared to a real French pastry) and... More

We were full, already, from the buffet nearby, and due to a sudden fownpour we stopped here. The psstry we ordered was very dry. The latte and cappuccino were not worth it. Their crepes looked great, but we didn't try it.

When a pastry is buttery with a nice light crunchy exterior and a soft pillowy interior you know it's the real deal. Great job!
