I have actually been to France a couple times and absolutely love their 'cafe culture.' I was looking for a nice cafe to spend the morning studying and feel like i won the lottery when i stumbled on this little gem!!! Dont let the outdated strip-mall location fool you, like i did for so long! Go in and see the... More

Then I had the shrimp bouchée( puff pastry which is a dough that rises in layers during baking.) An advice!. If you go there ask for waitress Kristin. Great... More

After reading so many wonderful reviews online I really did not want to be a negative. After hearing so many great things from several different people I decided to go and meet a friend. Arriving the bakery is beautiful as all of the reviews say. The dining room is conducive to great conversation many people were there talking and visiting... More

The bakery has a lot of types of pastry and a huge selection of macarons. We tried two pieces of cheesecake - they were fine, but you would do better at the Cheesecake Factory. Regarding the macarons, i purchased 8. 2 were decent, with shells the right consistency, although all of them had very skimpy fillings. the merest dab. The... More

My go to place for dessert cravings. Their cakes are so amazing. I drop a lot for a slice of them. The cafe is also nice enough that they are fine if we just stop in for a dessert. Nice people they have working there.

Ou la la for the French onion soup, or the quiche or the desserts . 5 star food at a very economical price point. Do not save your calories here! Every morsel is worth the calorie count.

La Bonne Bouchee is a fun place to go for lunch. They have a great sandwiches and entrées. I have to have their French Onion soup with my meal. Their Croque Monsieur is really good. The bread is toasted with ham, cheese and bechamel sauce on it. They also have a smaller version on a butter crescent. Save room for... More

I found it and was very impressed by the pastry cases. They had 6 full display cases of sweets. And the colors made my mouth water. I had fruit tart and coffee there and took a bag of cookies and a bag of macaroons home. The cookies were pretty but not the best I have had, I'm sorry to report.... More

I took a customer to lunch her and the Salad Nicoise was wonderful. Tuna, Sardines, fresh greens, olives, egg. All you could ask for. My customer has a cheese and fruit plate that looked spectacular. I had to push myself away from the pastry shelves. It all looked so good.
