“Incomparable pastries!!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

This place has always been bustling busy when I visited it- first sign that something good is going on here.
My companions love coffee and attest to the fact that the different variations offered here are good.
The various breakfast/brunch/lunch quicches are freshly made and extremely tasty.
The staff are friendly and efficient so don't be deterred by a long line. The Frech chef is a feature and if you're lucky you can share a repartee with him.
But (for me), the essence of the place is in the baked goods. I am a bakery fiend and the pastries here are some of the finest you will ever come across. The cream cheese croissants, fruit danishes and filled beignets are so good that perhaps it's wrong to even try them as you'll be condemned to failing comparisons wherever else you go.
No, go ahead, try it!!

“Tres Bien”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stopped for breakfast and had buckwheat crepes stuffed with ham, cheese, and eggs. Delicious and gluten free, yet. They have tons of pastries and variations of coffees as well as lunch soups and sandwiches. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. Will return when in the area.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Don't blink or you will pass by. It is a fantastic little French bakery and restaurant in a strip mall. I went in to get a proper cup of coffee and saw a wonderful selection of baked goods. The dishes that were coming from the kitchen looked fabulous. I wish I could have stayed and had breakfast. I definitely will next year!

“Stunningly good”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Ok, it is busy and you may need to wait for attention but the staff are all yours when you turn arrives. Baked goods to meet every taste, crepes that are outstanding and platters that overflow with good things. The guys behind the counter are fun and know their stuff and can recommend as needed. They will set stuff aside while you devour a delicious crepe and cafe au late as well as alter items upon request. You call all the shots. A great destination whether out exploring in a car, on a bike or walking in the area. Feels like Paris, it really does.
