I've never eaten in their cafe but I have had many of their cakes and they are so amazingly delicious. The Opera Creme Torte is the best, IMO, but their carrot cake is pretty darn good too. The people that work there are always really nice too. You should definitely get one of their cakes.

Purchased a variety of cookies to suppliment our Rehearsal Dinner menu across the street at Art of Entertaining. They tasted like Heaven! So many comments from our guests. Had the French Macaroons in 4 flavors, Chocolate Bliss and Coney Island Hearts. Yum!

This was a fabulous café. The food was excellent and so was the service. I was even surprised when the bill came and I go two little cookies for free.

Looking forward to a Tea Room with atmosphere, scones, and delicious little sandwiches and desserts. It began with ordering a coffee and a cup of tea (with milk) When the drinks arrived, the coffee was cold, and the tea was flavored (had asked for a plain black tea) Moving on to the food ---- we ordered the Belgium waffles, and...

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...
