“No short-cuts. A real French bakery”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Highly recommended for day-time meals and baked goods. This bakery is run with real heart and no short-cuts are taken. Jane and Florence and their staff do an excellent job. Their bread, croissants, bread-sticks and chocolate mousse cake are all recommended. Take time to stay for breakfast. In season they can become a little overrun, but for good reason. Wonderful food and good service.

“World class bakery - service could be better”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Get there early over the busy festive season to enjoy the finest croissants ever tasted ..... All sorts of breads & pastries which are irresistible ..... Regrettably though the service is unpredictable.

“Shady nook in a courtyard.”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The bread,pastries and coffee are melt-in-the-mouth fresh.Seating is both inside (next to the fireplace in winter) or outside in a cobbled courtyard in summer.This is the perfect spot for a lazy Sunday brunch.The service and food is consistently good.A must-do breakfast spot if you are in Plettenberg Bay,South Africa.

“Best almond croissant... EVER!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Do yourself a favour and if in this part of town stop here for breakfast/lunch or just because. Great little bakery/cafe, fantastic service, good coffee (which was hard to find along the garden route) and nice ambiance (we sat by the fire which was lovely). This was a great little stop on our way through the garden route. We shared an almond croissant and it was so good we also took one to go they were solo good.
