“A Weekly Stop I Can't Live Without”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

We dine here only occasionally but I stop here at least once a week for the bread and occasional pastries. I don't buy bread at the store when you can come here and get it made fresh any day of the week. And it's incredible. It's always packed so grab a number as soon as you get in the door and be prepared to jostle and wait and smile at your fellow customers because you're in this thing together. May as well make it pleasant!

If you have time, order an espresso or Americano and a pastry and take them to one of the delightful outside tables where you can watch the world go by. This is also a dog friendly area so bring your pooch. (But not inside.) When we have eaten here the food has always been fresh and delicious but it's their bread we can't live without.

After 4pm, any loaves they have left go for two-for-the-price-of-one. Great deal but the selection can be pretty limited if they've had their usual busy days. LOVE this place. You will, too!

“Best croissants in town”

I love the danish here. The fruit tarts are excellent and sandwiches and quiche are fine for a light lunch.

“Tasty treats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Great French bakery with fantastic treats, inside fig garden. Rustic breads as well as normal French delights. Get there early as they sell out later in the day and once their gone, well you know the rest.
