I know where I will enjoy my breakfast when I visit my son at UF again. The chocolate hazelnut croissant was heavenly.

I had seen this strip mall bakery for several years, but had dismissed it. Big mistake. Huge. Pastries are works of art which belong in Paris. You can't go wrong.

Awesome bread and pastries although they are a bit expensive. They have a couple of tables out in front of the store, but not a great place to gather or have lunch. They don't make large batches of anything, so you just have to see what they have when you get there. Rosemary bread and rolls are awesome, and their... More

I would get super fat if I lived closer to this French bakery. I had a to die for rose, croissant and butter roll. When I say, I, I mean we, as my husband and I picked this up and devoured it outside the bakery. So butter rolls are not what I thought. It makes a cinnamon roll ashamed to... More

After being spoilt in Australia with an abundance of Hot Bread shops at every corner to find one outside Publix bread was a blessing. Loved their sourdoughs and bread rolls. All made for a great addition to our evening meal spent with our family here. Definitely recommend this bread shop to even the locals. And the other quirky products available... More

This is one of my favorite places and my favorite French bakery in town. Their complimentary wine tasting on Saturdays is magnificent, with excellent choices of wines from US, Chile, Spain, France, Australia, New Zealand, to name a few. The wine prices are very reasonable, but the service and french pastries / breads are fantastic. Great quality and never disappointing.

I had takeout. As I walked into the store, I did notice it was very small and not too well lit. I would therefore not recommend going to eat at the store. I got a cheese pizza and a Greek salad. The Greek salad was good, but the toppings to lettuce ratio was poor. The cheese pizza was fairly standard.... More

This wonderful authentic french bakery has been in Gainesville over 40 years. It has always been the best bakery to get wonderful breads and desserts. Since moving to its current location, it now offers wines, cheeses, oils and numerous other great things. Though there are surrounding bakeries, this place is always my favorite to buy from for special meals I... More
