i hope it's okay to review here even though our purchases were made at Cincinnati's farmers' market. My mother and I were strolling downtown when we discovered the market set up at Fountain Square. My goodness, we purchased a brownie sampler box, almond macarons, hurry bars (granola) and an oatmeal cookie. Their sales rep was very engaging. I really can... More

My sister in law got a cake for a birthday. It was beautiful. The details had glitter which rally made it look,amazing. The flavor,was Opera Cream and it was amazing. Usually baked goods that look that God don't match in taste but this did. Can't wait to try more!

The BonBonerie is one of the best cake shops in Cincinnati. The cafe allows customers to enjoy delicious pastries on site. The setting is pleasant, the service is good, and one never knows who else will be there. This is a good meeting place for business or leisure, and for whenever you need to take a break on a busy...

I have gone to The BonBonerie Bakery numerous times and I love their baked goods. The café is really a disappointment. Staff is non-engaging/non-friendly. Restaurant floor was not clean even though employees kept walking in to look at it while we were there and were folding napkins/utensils at the far table and could see the mess. The food was lackluster.... More

My husband and I had a delightful lunch here today. The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. The assortment of hot and cold teas was amazing and tasty. Our sandwiches were delicious as was the piece of quiche we shared. We will come back soon!

my sister raved about the quiche served in the cafe for lunch (she was right!)and of course there is the bakery, as delicious as advertised. We took home turtle brownies and chocolate bliss, and each bite was worth savoring. Just seeing all of the pastries and cakes and desserts on display in this charming bakery is worth a visit! We...

This is a quaint shop, bakery and tea room. My great niece had a High Tea shower for her sister. A group of15. We started out with so many types of tea to choose - either hot or cold. My favorites were the vanilla tea and the strawberry tea. The table was set with a variety of cups and saucers... More

Locals know that the Bonbonerie makes fabulous cakes that are tasty works of art. They are a staple for every anniversary, birthday party and celebratory occasion. In addition to that, they also bake beautiful seasonal cookies and petits fours, and lemon squares that I have never been able to pass up. They are also one of my favorite restaurants for... More

Stopped in here while visiting some relatives. We picked up several desserts to eat after dinner, as well as some scones for breakfast the next day. Service was quick and friendly, and everything we bought was fresh and tasty.

Had my sister order me a cake for my mothers 92nd birthday party. We ordered one cake to be the lemonade and the other was chocolate with opera cream frosting. Because we were doing a Mexican theme they decorated the cake with colors to match our theme. The cake was huge and I thought we would have some leftovers but... More
