Jacques is a truly authentic and skilled baker. I discovered his bakery and finally found baked goods and pastries that are as good (better, really) than the long since closed Blue Moon Bakery (where City - ripoff - Bakery is now). Little towns throughout Europe...More

We popped in to check it out this morning and split an awesome breakfast sandwich (a REAL egg, ham and swiss) and an excellent crunchy and just enough sweet Cheese Danish (how it should be). Very friendly husband and wife owner/baker team; he's quite obviously...More

Not only is this the best Challah I've ever had, but the multigrain, pretzel rolls and spinach-stuffed rolls were excellent. I have also tried the lemon squares, eclairs, blondies, and some kind of pumpkin bread - they were all really great. I recently placed a...More

This bakery should be out of business. I first bought a "French baguette" (quotes deliberate) that had a very soft crust and a crumbly interior. In fact, I had bought Wonder Bread. Despite that, I bought a Sea Salt and Peppercorn Focaccia today from Green...More

SWEET: French style pastries found here, which is to say, most are less sweet and richer in butter than typical American style. Our favorites include the chocolate eclairs, the Pin Stripe Cake, blackberry tartlets, the crumb cake, and the rugelach. For Valentine's day they made...More

My family stopped in to Creme after a camping trip and absolutely loved what we bought. Cookies, pastries, breads (esp the semolina!) were wonderful. We will make it a regular stop on our visits. The owner was lovely.

I purchased a Foccaccia. It was just terrible. It was crumbly and had none of the wonderful sponginess that a Foccaccia should have. I really can't understand how so many reviewers think their baked goods are so wonderful, although I have not had any of...More
