Eggs are exclusive to breakfast in Charlotte, NC. Cereal, bread, pancakes, yogurt fruits or gourmand eggs. Why not at a French bakery… The power omelette was made perfectly just for me. Three eggs with tomatoes, herb & swiss. Incredibly light and fluffy. They offered on...an alacarte basis pomme frites, soup or salad. I’m great with just the omelette & coffee. Plenty great pastries. And I must stick to being anti-inflammatory. Macaroons are made with almonds. Let me get some to go… Wonderful breakfast experience at a beautiful french bakery. Loved it!More

Went to Renaissance Patisserie, at specialty shops in south park Charlotte NC on Wednesday 26, 2022, with my family. I was greatly disappointed with my french desert and cup of coffee. The cake was actually old and dry with no flavor whatsoever. The coffee was...old and cold as well. I do not recommend this place at all. Thank you.More

This is a must visit location! We stopped by for breakfast, returned for lunch and bought a chocolate bomb to go!!! The flavor and flakiness of the croissants are unlike so many croissants in the US- these are melt in your mouth French pastries everyone...should experience 😊 The service was excellent, line moved swiftly and tables cleaned promptly. We enjoyed chatting with Sylvan (spelling?) All of their ingredients were extremely fresh and tasty. We plan to return here whenever we come to Charlotte again.More

We had a wonderful breakfast croissant, two lousey coffees (and we are coffee lovers), and it was all a bit too pricey for what it is. The place is clean and bright, the staff are kind, the displays are to die for. At the end...of the day was it worth the $45 (two croissants and two coffees)...BEFORE TIP...nah. So, maybe I would go again to try a baked treat, but...maybe notMore

This French bakery is a delicious surprise next to the Marriott hotel in Southpark. The pastries are mouthwatering, strongly recommend the lemon target, carrot muffin, and kouign-amman. They have lovely outdoor French cafe tables and you can watch them make their creations inside.

Tried Cafe Monte and Amelies, but neither could top Renaissance. Literally, EVERY morning they were open, we had a croissant. My wife had an almond croissant and loved it too. But, this time they had warm beigniett that I ate while they were making our...lattes. You have got to try them they are like a puff croissant with sugar.More

What a fantastic spot for pastries! Friends and I happened upon this spot about mid morning on a Monday. The coffee was fresh and hot, and the staff were pleasant. I had a pumpkin croissant that was exceptional. It wasn’t that horrid corporate pumpkin spice...tat being thrown on everything. The fresh pumpkin filing was was mellow and wrapped in the flaky buttery goodness of the croissant layers. The toasted pepitas on top with powdered sugar added a lovely crunch. The chocolate almond croissant was sublime. Perfect layers of chocolate and almond paste. Absolutely everything in the pastry case is made on site. You can see Monsieur le Chef through the glass working surrounded by the commis. The kitchen itself was spotless. The bathrooms were beautiful and immaculate.More

Their version of a king cake is amazing and elegant. I grew up in New Orleans and have enjoyed hundreds of king cakes over the years. Not a traditional version but the best I have ever had. The textures, taste and artistry are wonderful.

This authentic French patisserie is a treasure! Every classic pastry is available, macrons, St Honore's, Opera cake, etc. etc. beautifully crafted with great ingredients and great skill. You can taste the love of the pastry chef in every bite. Flaky pastry was just melt in...the mouth and the flavors subtle and perfect. Yes, I'm gushing but they are so good!!!! Take a friend for a coffee and a pastry immediately! Charlottes gem!More

Stopped in for lunch on Saturday and sooo happy we did. We had gourmet grilled cheese, tomato soup and best fries. The staff was so delightful and helpful. The food tasted fresh, scratch made and delicious. What a great value and delicious lunch. On our...list for future visits for sure. We left with some pastries to share with friends. We highly recommend this new edition to the Morrison shops across SouthPark Mall. Great good, great service and great value. Stop by for a coffee, desert or meal - we loved it!!More

My husband and I took our daughter for her 8th birthday after hearing about it on a NPR show. The customer service was fantastic - they explain everything and make recommendations. They even gave our daughter a free birthday macaroon! We had sandwiches, ratatouille, and...lemonade, and of course, a pastry. Everything was delicious! The pastries are amazing to look at - so detailed and beautiful! You can watch them bake and decorate thru a window. We sat outside on the cute patio, decorated yellow and white and black. Would definitely go back to try more desserts, and hopefully with coffee in the cooler months!More

In a small mall advertizing "specialty shops" it doesnt look promising, but when you get inside- it feels real. And when you taste it, even better. Very good spinach quiche and lovely pastries. Very good lattes- just a few inutes away from the Doubletree Suites-...and a more gourmet place for breakfastMore
