I don't live in Cincinnati anymore, but every time I come back someone has dessert from this amazing bakery. Had breakfast there for first time, and it was great. A bit pricey - but you get what you pay for.

This was my first visit to the BonBonerie Bakery. My mother had purchased a cake for my birthday. The cake was a yellow cake with a raspberry cream filling. It was very good and fresh. While there, we also sampled several other items. The sugar cookies and pecan triangles were so good! I love the atmosphere and the staff at... More

We went here because we saw a writeup for it at a chili place we went to and it was one of the best on-a-whim trips ever. We were already full so we went to the bakery in the back for some treats. They have really delicious cookies. We had some cheesecake bites that were also delicious. They're about $1-2... More

I've been the BonBonerie numerous times. I love their lunch, great tuna sandwiches and quiches. The bakery items are even better. You can't go wrong with the Opera Cream Cake and the mini desserts. I have also hosted a bridal shower at the BonBonerie and every was perfect for the mother-to-be.

My wife and I ate lunch at this cafe. It's a very small place and seems to be busy all the time. Sandwiches were very average and tasted just okay. It's a bit pricey for sandwiches (around $10 each). We also purchased baked goods in the bakery in the back. It was just okay. We had better baked goods and... More

If you've never had opera Cream Cake, you won't like anyone elses after you've tried The Bonbonerie's. It is one of my personal favorites and one of their specialties. This is a first class bakery with high quality product. You can't go wrong. They have a great website that displays and gives you an idea their work.

We picked up and opera cream cake and misc cookies. As usual, it was excellent. It also freezes well so you don't have to eat the whole thing in one sitting . . . even though you might want to, So we still have 2 slices to eat later. The Christmas Yule log is a tradition that we will order... More

BonBonerie Bakery never disappoints! We are "frequent flyers" of the BonBonerie and tried the pumpkin cheesecake yesterday. Delicious!
