“Icky croissants”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 via mobile

We stopped in here and picked up a chocolate and plain croissant. We ended up trashing both of them. Oily and hard top that I've never encountered in a croissant. Flaky would never describe these croissants. Yuck.
Plus the to go coffee is served in Styrofoam.
I have been to Paris lately so I think my expectations for a croissant ate based in reality. "Sir, I knew chocolate croissant, and you are no chocolate croissant."

“Hidden gems”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We visited the Clearwater beach area. We were looking for a place for breakfast and decided to venture out of the hotel. As we were driving down the Gulf Blvd. We came across this cafe. The breakfast choices are delicious from a variety of quiches to delicious crepes. We went twice during our visit. A lot of locals enjoy their breakfast here. They also have some amazing pastries. Do not pass up thus place.

“A Slice of Paris in Paradise”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

This place is great. We get to eat amazing pastries and cheeses, drink delicious coffee, and our baby falls asleep to the French music. The staff is super friendly. Don't pass this up. The reviews say it all.

“A little taste of France”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Have a wonderful coffee, a pastry, or one of the most delicious crepes in town. Then take you time selecting the perfect bread and dessert to take home! A lovely way to start any day!

“Paris bakery in Florida”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

The food is out if this world. If you close your eyes you would think you are in France. Dedicated staff, very friendly local hangout. Very generous portion, outstanding sandwiches and crepes. Great cappuccinos. The desert are to die for just so fresh there no words adequate enough. The price is right, you get quality food at a reasonable price. More than meets the eye, highly recommended.
