C'est La Vie is wonderful. I love going there for breakfast, brunch, or just to grab a coffee. They have a lot of options, and everything is made fresh in the back. Go multiple times, and try everything you can because it is worth it.

We love the croissants. It's a small place with some room for enjoying the croissants on-site, WARNING get there early or reserve what you enjoy, this place is no secret.

One of the nicest place around Hattiesburg. Food is great and staff is fabulous. We stop often and sit and enjoy the delightful pastries and load up several different items to take home. Sad to say usually we sample and end up devouring them before we get home.

Picked up a very wonderful Valentine's Cake. It's "Black Forest" and totally wonderful. Presentation is SUPERB. The cake itself is so soft, creamy moist and taste is almost out of this world. WOW...... I've been here several times before and if I've not said so......Thanks for this treat.

By the name, it is a French bakery. They are more of a coffee, breakfast, pastry shop and do serve lunch. I would not call them a full-service bakery, but the items they fix are DELICIOUS. I went by yesterday to get a King Cake for Mardi Gras. They are baked to order. Most places make a wide variety of... More

The prices are excellent for coffee products. We had an espresso (will get into in a moment), a hot chocolate, and a piece of chocolate mousse cake. Everything was delicious, especially the cake. The espresso wasn't like your typical American coffee shop espresso, burnt; but neither was it as good as espresso in Germany. It reminded me more of Lithuanian... More

Was there for a local event--Iced Mocha Latte was very good, and reasonably priced compared to the Big Coffee Chain. Good selection of pastries to complement the coffee.

We tried this little coffee shop because Starbucks was so full. I was pleasantly surprised with this place. It has a nice atmosphere, good music, good coffee and pastries. I didn't try their breakfast casseroles but they looked good. The owner is from France so the pastries did not disappoint. The place could be a little bit cleaner and the... More

We were visiting Hattiesburg and had heard about this bakery. My family had breakfast here and it was great. Fresh baked pastries, breakfast sandwiches and a full selection of coffee.

Huge variety of pastries, petit fours, cinnamon rolls and more. Small store in a strip mall. Go early for best selection. Pricey but good!

Thank Barb B
