This place is always a must when we go to Fargo. EVERTHING is so good, except the snickerdoodles. Not enough cinnamon. The frosting is so good, not too sweet and not waxy. I LOVE the thumbprint cookies. I buy 6 dozen and have kept them...frozen up to 6 months and they taste fresh and so very good. Pecan bars are amazing as is their fruit tarts, strawberry rhubarb Galette (my favorite!) I wanted to try Kransakake but could not get it. My husband is so picky and he loves this place, as does my best friend and my grandaughter. Coffee is sssssooooo good. If going to Fargo, make the trip downtown if for not other reason than to check out this place. It is worth it!More

Made an amazing birthday cake. Buttercream frosting wasn’t too sweat and overwhelming, and the sponge layers were very soft! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed eating out cake! Bonus note: While I was picking up the cake, I grabbed a cinnamon roll. Best decision I...could have made - they are amazing! Service was great and I will be a returning customer!More

So pleased to be back at Nichole’s! We walked into a busy place for lunch! Great to see that business was hop’n! We found a place to sit and ordered two Turkey, Mozzarella, and Green Apple sandwiches! Loved’em! We also ordered a side of the...Quinoa (yeah, I never pronounce it correctly) and a cup of coffee. Everything was very satisfying! I’d be very happy to make the same order again. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Fargo and eat at Nichole’s!More

The "pasta bake" was overly salty and overcooked and dried out. The quiche lorraine was, "okay" but nothing special. It, too, was overly dried out. Both dishes needed to have some butter draped over them (which we did) to moisten them up a bit. It...may be that new employees (due to COVID) are the reason for the decline.More

Stopped here after I landed in Fargo and was not disappointed! Service was top notch, the pastry I went with was fantastic (raspberry galette) and the environment was clean and welcoming. Highly recommend!

After a substandard Hampton Inn breakfast in St. Cloud, we were in need of a late morning treat by the time we reached Fargo. Plus we wanted to see a little of the city. We walked in around 11 am and were met by a...pastry case of impressive size with a large number of delectable treats. My husband immediately focused on the raspberry Danish. My eye roved over the shelves, not wanting anything too sweet but something different from the Danish and settled on the cannoli. But I've learned from sad experience, that cannoli must not sit long after they've been filled or the pastry becomes soggy. So I asked the clerk how long ago they'd been filled and she replied "Not more than 15 minutes ago". We bought those 2 items, plus coffee and, what the heck, a bag of gingersnap cookies for the road. The counter staff were friendly and helpful. patiently answering our questions and filling all our requests. The pastries were fabulous. The ricotta filling was not-too-sweet, just right. The crust shattered under my fork. Perfect. The Danish met with strong approval from the Danish-pastry-connoisseur i married. We were happy. And the cookies we had later were very fine, too. Not at all like boxed gingersnaps, more chewy. It was hard to stop after eating only two. Great little place.More

This place is amazing for authentic pastries. From scones, croissants and beyond you will not be disappointed. Their staff is well-informed & willing to assist in anyway! Definitely will make another trip there.

I had a chicken salad sandwich and a sweet potato salad and they both were good. My server (Julia) had one of the kindest smiles I've ever seen! The environment was very cozy. They also use eco-friendly paper straws and that's pretty rare around here!...I ate alone but I think I'll bring a friend next time. The atmosphere is perfect for having a long conversation. I also will be trying one of the tasty looking desserts next time.More

Right in downtown Fargo is this delightful bakery with restaurant. Bakery items include the usual suspects but these are so well executed. The little cakes are particularly beautiful, Didn’t try them but we sampled a few things. Red velvet cake, a pear tart and the...truffles. Have to be millions of calories but all wonderful. Service was great too. If you are in Fargo don’t miss.More

On a cold, dreary morning my friend and I stopped in and warmed ourselves over cups of Cafe au lait that took me back to summer in Paris. Then... The scone! Perfect balance of softness inside and crunch outside...

Loved their pastries. Bought several to eat and several to go. Panna cotta was good but it had a gummy topping that detracted. Hard to cut and not much flavor. Stick to the cookies, bars and pastries.

This pastry shop/restaurant is a gem! We are out-of-towners and wanted to bring a dessert for an Easter Dinner we were invited to . I emailed Nichole and she responded immediately. We ordered a Key Lime Pie online and we picked it up the day...before. The young woman who helped us was lovely and provided instructions on how to keep and serve the pie. It was beautiful and delicious and enjoyed by all!!!!!More
