Had a delicious breakfast of French toast and the trimmings, including wonderful coffee. My wife had a breakfast sandwich which was outstanding and enough for the two of us. Service was delightful and timely. If you don't do anything else, just step inside and smell and gawk at the pastries. A great new addition to HHI!!

A nice place to have a cup of Latte and a pastry. Everything they make is great, the service is still good, but it is sad to find out the stop doing dinner on Fridays because of lack of response from the locals. It is hard to compete for Dinner customers in a place like HHI.

we found this place about five years ago when it was still in an out of the way place strip mall and stopped by to check it out. The owner is a Polish gentleman who spent about a half hour giving us a tour of the kitchen and an explanation of how the Polish taught the French how to bake.... More

Food was very good. I enjoyed the berry French toast. Coffee was good. Service was good, but they were super busy so not too much attention. Fun, quirky place with tasty menu.

One of the best. French toast is fabulous. Try it. Eat inside or outside. The bakery is out of this world.

I gave 4 stars because my mom likes this place so much. My experiences have been tepid. She got the french toast which was a good choice. I got the croque monsuier, which was all cheese and bechamel sauce. Not crunchy like the sandwich title suggests. The service was slow and terse, and the prices are a bit high. On... More

So, so, SO delicious. We grabbed chocolate twists, chocolate croissants, and ham and cheese croissants to go. They were amazing and I wanted more. We will be back. The coffee was also legit.

My family and I went to the French bakery on Thursday in the afternoon. We had a great lunch. (Large sandwiches) and great desserts. But we must have caught the server in a bad day because she wasn't happy. She took out order and didn't go back to check on us till the very end to give us the check.... More
