“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Great selection of pastries, salads, quiche, and sandwiches. I would have eaten there every morning but my husband wanted a more "traditional" breakfast. Finally settled on bringing a wonderful pastry back to the resort as a treat to follow the basic bacon and eggs.

“Thoroughly Delightful -- But Closed September 23 - October 4”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a delightful place for breakfast. The interior is rather small, but the atmosphere is just wonderful. Xavier, one of the owner/managers, is great.

I was told on a visit a few days ago that this place would be closed for a couple of weeks in late September. This will allow them to expand the seating.

Did I mention that the pastries here are delicious? Real French croissants served by people who grew up in France but now call Key West home. The best of France and of Key West.

“Great food and great people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

The best breakfast we had on our two-week vacation in Florida happened at this friendly little café. The French couple that runs it are so sweet and the food is simply incredible. We will definitely be back.

“Finally, REAL French pastry in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Went in to sample Francois' wonderful pastries on recommendation of a friend. He is charming and greeted us warmly. We discovered he has a big cadre of regular customers who come for the coffee, pastry and chatter. We tried chocolate almond pastry, the eclairs, croissants, pain chocolat, salmon quiche and tomato goat cheese tart. All were excellent. Highly recommend the quality and thought the prices were reasonable give the portion sizes. And they will deliver! I hope Francois and his wife will be in Key West for many years to come.
