Incredible desserts!

I ordered a number of items from BonBonerie for our Thanksgiving dinner and everything was delicious! The pecan pie was such a hit -- next year I will order two. Delicious pumpkin cheesecake and carrot cake!

The layout of the Café is very quaint. We all got the breakfast burrito. Could have used some veggies. The pastries were ok. We came for a prior review that said the Scones were the best, we didn't think so. The BonBonerie Coffee is spectacular.

I had the ham & brie panini for lunch. It came with what appeared to be homemade chips and some fruit. The panini had a jelly on it that had a fairly subtle kick to it. It was excellent. My strawberry-kiwi iced tea was really good too. I ended with the opera cake cupcake. The filling was really light and... More

We have been here twice, and it's a nice place for a good pot of tea and light luncheon. The menu is not big, but the items are made to order and good. They do reserve some tables on weekends for tea service that can be booked ahead, which limits seating, and most tables are comfortable but the place is... More

An eclectic little spot that we love for lunch! They always have a special quiche of the day that is yummy. One of my favorites is their tuna salad, made with homemade mayo. Best tuna ever! Always a special soup of the day also. It's a little local spot. The bakery is one of the best in Cincinnati. The chocolate... More

We stopped in for Saturday tea, and had a wonderful time enjoying pastry, sandwiches, and quiche. The service was very good, and the window seat was perfect ! Be sure to make a reservation beforehand because of limited seating and limited pastries etc. We had a very relaxing hour within- don't miss it!
