“A Mirage?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

A most unexpected treat, like an oasis in the desert.
There is not much around this area of interest to us but this cake shop was so seemingly out of place, try it for acake and coffee.

“Great for a sweet treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We have visited here often for a lunch of a quiche and sundae or a delicious pastry. We have even taken away a large cake for a special event. The pastry called 'Colbert' is a chocolate lovers treat. Try the lemongrass tea - tea citronella it is made with the real plant not died leaves.

“The best Pie and Cake in town...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

There are now two shops for Colbert, one in the hotel and the other at the Eden Galerie (next to IBIS). We have been to Colbert several times, just to spoil ourselves and to buy pie and cake!. Of all the places in Tana only the ones from colbert come close to what we are used to in Europe and so far these are the only ones we really enjoy!.

Just last week we bought a simple but nice apple pie for our anniversary and some nice vanilla cakes. The Eden shop is clean and modern, they have an indoor terrace in the Eden Gallerie and a few places inside the shop itself. For real patisserie stuff such as cookies, cakes and pies this is THE place to go in Tana. As for the bread I would choose another place (we prefer the bakery at Millenium, Ivandry), as the ones in Colbert are double the price and simply less tasty!.

“AMAZING- right out of France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

we were staying at the Hotel Colbert so I was curious about their almond croissants. i walked in mid-morning and could not believe the different types and varieties of chocolates and pastries. the almond croissants were quite good, not the best, but much better than any other pastries I've had in Tana.
