Home of the famed Opera Cream Cake (best cake I have ever had, for a guy who doesn't even like sweets that much), the cafe is actually quite good and offers delicious well done soups, salads, and sandwiches also. Popular and always bustling every day of the week. Save room for dessert!

Arrived for an early brunch and all the tables were reserved for the ladies who lunch (who didn't start arriving arrive late lunch anyway). I was squeezed into a corner and my tea and cakes took a very long time to arrive. The tea was over-brewed (probably because it has been sitting waiting somewhere) and the cakes were OK but... More

For the last 3 visits to Cincinnati- we've eaten here. The lunch menu is portioned so you CAN have dessert which is probably the reason to eat only salad. The chocolate cupcake with salt/carmel icing was amazing.

My brother bought this delicious cake for his wife's 70th birthday. Wow! This could possibly be the best dessert I've ever had in my life!

No question the best cakes and cookies in Cincinnati. The opera cream cake is out of this world and the cookies are great if you want to get a quick hostess gift. I can not recommend this place enough. Make sure you go early because this place is packed on Saturday AM.

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
