“Wannabe Kayser”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Patisserie Nouvelle tries hard to catch up with Patisserie Kayser but consistently fails. Some dishes are good, but I wouldn't recommend the salads (been sick several times...). The pain au chocolat and waffles are nice, the cake is not. At their place at UTEX you can sit outside, very nice. Prices are way to high for what it is: 10 USD for a soup, 40 USD (!!!) for a cake. Go to Kayser, a bit cheaper and way better !

“A normal french bakery for expats”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Decent french bakery for expats. Good food but very expensive. Ideal for breakfast or afternoon coffee with friends. Baguettes, croissants, french patisserie, coffee, tea...and all kind of cakes.

“Interesting place not too pricy”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Had brunch with friends here yesterday 3/16 and was impressed by the quality if the food served. Our waiter was a bit slower than I would have expected as the morning crowd had departed. They were out of the mini croissants that myself and one of my brunch mates ordered, but that is life. I keep forgetting that you pay for coffee refills outside the states at restaurants. Lol all in all I would go back

“Terrace Breakfast”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

With an attractive terrace on a main street in La Gombe, La Patisserie Nouvelle disappoints a bit breakfast wise. Although the service is very good, the breakfast choice is rather disappointing. Croissants where definitely not up to standard. Having said this, LPN is still a recommendable place and the selection of tarts and sweets inside looked very promising.

“Oasis in Kin”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Always a nice atmosphere here, we sometimes spend hours working and chatting and enjoying the pastries, sandwiches and hot chocolates. Wifi didn't function last time hope they fixed it for you. Coffee isnt the best of Kin but if you are looking for a good croissant almand, this is the palce!
