Stopped in for a quick cup of coffee and ended up getting pastries also. Had the almond croissant which was very good. Friendly staff. In the strip center with Von's. Nice place , and was a nice stop. Not your average pastry shop.

Had a dreadful experience upon recently visiting O Gourmet. Although there appeared to be 4-5 front of house/waitstaff and only 2-3 tables occupied at a time, service was dismally slow and confused. Many of our items came out wrong and the servers struggled to understand...More
