“Beautiful displays case!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Desserts here are (almost) too lovely to eat! They totally remind me of the bakeries in Paris where you just gaze at the lovely artistry and arrangements in the display case. Actually, very delicious in addition to being gorgeous. Love the style of coffee cup that goes with your dessert as well.

“Ahhhmazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Scrumptious pastries. Every item in there is a work of art, but the taste does not disappoint! A lovely place to get an amazing Blue Bottle Coffee with a tasty coffee cake or scone. A must stop in your morning!

“Perfect Patisserie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I try to get to Amour at least a couple of times a week to sample both the exquisite patisseries as well as the wonderful Blue Bottle Coffee and great teas. Everyone will have different favorites but allare beautifully created, stunning to look at and delightful to savour.

If you are looking for a cake for a special occasion this is the place to go; their custom cakes are extraordinary and unlike many cakes they not only look amazing but they taste divine too.

It is also the perfect place to pick up a plate of desserts to take to a party - they will wow your host.

I can't recommend Amour enough. It would hold its head up high even in Europe.

“It even tastes expensive!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Not going to lie, I could eat a whole 5 boxes of these little, unique chocolates. They're the only dessert I've eaten there, but they were pretty good. They had tons of different flavors and I love that! They aren't afraid to show what they can really do and I love the presentation of their little chocolates! Almost too perfect to the point where I don't want to eat it, I want to keep it in a bullet proof, glass box and keep it. They are very pricey though, for I unfortunately had to pay $2 per one square inch chocolate. As good as it was, I didn't get more than one. But hey, if it's expensive it probably tastes good right?!

“Great little french coffee/pastry shop in Los Gatos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

My first time in the coffee shop was not very good; I told the manager and she apologized profusely, offered to redo the order and was mortified. I think they had just opened and it was disorganized; I thought I would never go back but decided to try it again with some family. This time the service was perfect, the mango mousse was really nice and the coffee perfect. I eat gluten free and there was a choice of cakes and macaroons for me. There was somebody to explain what each cake contained. Desserts are plated very nicely. All coffee is freshly brewed/drip filtered and is very good. The place is intimate, somewhat small but very cozy and chic.
All in all a nice experience, different than anything else that is available in San Jose/Los Gatos and worth a try.
