Initially we decided to pay a visit to this location because we were in search of fresh brioche. The website did list it as a product offered, but the staff informed us that it was only available on special occasions. Since we were there, we bought a wide selection of products including pastries, bread and cookies. The woman behind the... More

In regard to our employee being rude, I apologize and would love to talk to you so I can identify the employee and correct the situation. As to freshness, today is our 33 years anniversary and we...

Two words: Raspberry Croissants. Buy them - as many as you can. Buy the whole tray of them. Then buy the other tray of regular croissants.

This bakery will not disappoint, if you know French pastries and bread. I go here specifically for special occasions to buy goodies as gifts.

Where to start? The croissants are a-maz-ing! The macaroons best I ever had and other various pastries are so fresh, tasty and it is definitely a place not friendly to the waist line but so worth it!

Picked up a yule log for Christmas and boy were we disappointed. Dry cake and no taste whatsoever, we got the Grand Marnier and there was no hint of flavor, no orange, no vanilla. For almost $30 what a waste. I also tried an almond tart which also had no taste or flavor. This used to be the place for... More

Without a doubt the best bakery in town! The bread is so fresh and delicious. The pastries are all beautiful and tasty. I'm glad it's not any closer to me than it is or I would be there every day!

My boyfriend is French and he enjoyed the desserts and so did I. If you're in the mood for something sweet give them a try!

I am so glad we stopped here this morning. The Almond Croissant is amazing and my husband really enjoyed the Chocolate Eclair. He ate two of them. This is the kind of bakery we've been missing since leaving Chicago. Not a coffee shop, although they do serve espresso. Be prepared to pick up your bakery and go. You won't regret... More

Stopped by to try a few small items and returned a few days later to buy some tarts to take to someone. Everything was delicious. Felt like we were in Europe.
