“get the croissant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Croissants are by far the best since Paris. Ordered the chocolate one and thot, oh my... You really overdid it on the chocolate (said sarcastically cuz' there is just the smallest ribbon of the dark stuff). And then, went in for the bite. Really, bigger is NOT better. Perfect richness and any more would be not right. My splurge... ok,weakness. :)

“This is amazing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I love a personal break and what better than the ambiance of La Boul and Fig Garden Village to make me happy! They have just what I want for every bakery craving! Amazing foods for any meal or snack!

“A Weekly Stop I Can't Live Without”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We dine here only occasionally but I stop here at least once a week for the bread and occasional pastries. I don't buy bread at the store when you can come here and get it made fresh any day of the week. And it's incredible. It's always packed so grab a number as soon as you get in the door and be prepared to jostle and wait and smile at your fellow customers because you're in this thing together. May as well make it pleasant!

If you have time, order an espresso or Americano and a pastry and take them to one of the delightful outside tables where you can watch the world go by. This is also a dog friendly area so bring your pooch. (But not inside.) When we have eaten here the food has always been fresh and delicious but it's their bread we can't live without.

After 4pm, any loaves they have left go for two-for-the-price-of-one. Great deal but the selection can be pretty limited if they've had their usual busy days. LOVE this place. You will, too!

“Best croissants in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I love the danish here. The fruit tarts are excellent and sandwiches and quiche are fine for a light lunch.
