Quaint French bakery with delicious food. Eat inside or out. The pastries are wonderful, the French onion soup was delicious and the café latte was very good. The servers were very friendly and professional and the bakery was very clean and inviting. Hard to pass up these delicious pastries while staying at Hilton Head!

Was pretty disappointed after reading the reviews here and on Yelp. We arrived for breakfast around 9:45am on a Thursday morning. We were seated without menus and waited about 10 minutes for someone to bring us any.

I stumbled across this place for breakfast, I must say I was really pleasantly surprised! The staff are super friendly and can't do enough for you! The food tastes great and as an Englishman the best part is they can make a good cup of tea!

We ordered a yule log for Christmas. It was great. Order yours in future years. Also try their stollen. It is out of this world good. As for the food, we got the french dip again with truffle fries. I love their truffle fries. It is the standard I compare other fries to. They are perfectly crispy.
