Came here after a walk at Lake Eola. Had a Parisien panini, it was a good regular panini. To drink I had a lemonade not too sweet not too acidic. Good place for a quick bite to eat. Decor is cute.

Fresh squeezed orange juice and some of the best I have ever had. Omelet huge and outstanding! Very large and took half home. Crepes are good, too. A bit of Paris in Orlando. Bon Appetite!

STEER CLEAR. I tried giving this place multiple chances but every time, I am disappointed. I'm met with extremely rude, short baristas who seem to hate their jobs as much as I hate their attitudes. The older woman there was kind to me, but the younger women there are just downright rude. Besides the horrible service, the place is DIRTY.... More

Great French patisserie. Excellent coffee. Next time will try their sandwiches or crepes. Staff really speak French. Authentic feel to this small cafe.

My absolutely favorite bakery / Cafe in Central Florida. Great baguettes and sandwiches, but breakfast and Mimosas are my favorite. Staff is wonderful and if you can get here in the morning, the patrons and staff speak French and for a moment, I am lost in Montreal.

Nice little Cafe in a beautiful area. Try the fresh orange juice, so yummy!! The pastries have a real French taste and they sell lots of German sweets, too.

This is a good place to find a quick bite to eat for breakfast. Food is good, very friendly staff, but the prices are way overboard. The juice is freshly squeezed and I have had some moments of recovery here that have made a big difference in my upcoming daily activities. I suggest checking it out and enjoying a delicious...
