“Good If You Don't Know Any Better....”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Good for Clearwater.

Let's face it.... there aren't many very good bakeries in the area, and if you are one of those who are reading this and disagree with me, then it probably means that you haven't gotten around much.

So back to my point... it's fine for Clearwater,and it might be tough to find better stuff in the Tampa Bay area, but if you go to Paris and try some of their delicacies in some of their pastry shops and then go to Cafe de Paris, you'll quickly be disappointed.

Pierre Herme can sleep easy at night.

“A little bit of France in Florida”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is the real thing. The owners are both from France and do almost 100% of the cooking themselves. They have awesome sandwiches - I always get the house special sandwich - and crepes and quiches and beautiful pastries. You will not be disappointed with anything here. Get a sandwich to go and walk down to the beach. You will think you died and went to Heaven.

“Inexpensive neighborhood French bakery”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is a quaint bakery / coffee shop with an emphasis on French-style goods: croissants, crepes, eclairs, quiche, fruit tarts, breads etc as well as a nice assortment of other pastries and deserts. Good selection of coffee drinks. Not fancy, but very neighborly and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. The quiche and pastries were excellent. Inside seating is limited but adequate, since many customers carry out. It is right on the main drag, so the view is of the parking lot and road. There were a few tables outside, but I would not want to sit there.

I wish that we had found this place a bit sooner during our one week stay. I highly recommend it for breakfast, lunch, coffee break, or to load up on danish, pastries and breads for a few days.

“A true treasure in Indian Rocks Beach!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We go every day while we are staying in the area! That should tell you we love it... Anything you try will be delicious. I love to see the twinkle in customers eyes as they decide which treat they will have today! We love the fruit tarts, the flourless chocolate cake, the crepes, the almond cookies...
Xavier, Valerie and son Luigi have created a real treasure!!

“Wow what a delight!!!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Excellent ,Excellent super fruit crapes , pastries , and service. Xavier makes great raspberry crapes with a dollop of whip cream on the side !!! Valerie makes a good variety of French pastries (that come with coffee). Luigi, son, is great in friendly service to customers.
They just celebrated their 10 year anniversary after leaving south west part of France.
Great all around staff and super, high quality food.
Above all others.
