We came here because of the great kids combo meal: croissant sandwich, drink, and small dessert for $6 CA. We also tried the bread and pastries and they were excellent. Also loved the creme brûlée! Great, great bakery with a ton of space inside.

They have the best croissants and many many other baked goods. Long lines during meal times. Good breakfast and lunch combo offered. We came by last March and May 2018 recommended by our cab driver. Many locals eat here too.

We didn’t ask for the recipe. I am not sure if they give their trade secrets away but it needed no butter! It was perfect!!

They were around $2 each. Not the best macarons I have had, but it was nice to try the maple one.

It is not a breakfast place ... but you can order croissant or egg sandwiches. It depends on the daily menu.
