“Lovely Small French Bakery/Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Beautiful breads and pastries available. Try their French bread sandwich with Brie and French Ham -- you couldn't find better in Paris! The pastries are beautiful, looking forward to trying more...friendly, helpful service. Lovely little place - try it!

“A bit of Paris in Maple Grove”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is a small cafe, but everything is wonderful. Once inside I pretend I'm back In Paris. The food is excellent, but the pastries are ou-la-la wonderful! It is even a treat to have coffee and a baguette.

“Discover a hidden gem...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

While staying at a nearby Hilton Garden Inn, we discovered Chez Arnaud within walking distance; literally just across the parking lot. Very European in feel and taste! Your taste buds will not be disappointed. It was perfect for brunch on two mornings of our stay. Their pastries are wonderful, their quiche very good too. Enjoyed a wonderful latte with my pastries as well.

Expect the "real" deal...French pastry and bread from someone who obviously cares about his "craft". Attention to detail and rich in every respect. Eat some goodies there and take some home as well! You can't go wrong here if you like "real" food and unique European-flair foods. It made me long to return to France again just for the food!

“Great Specialty Bakery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

On the recommendation of a friend, we went to Chez Arnaud. Great French bakery. Tried several of their pastries. While a bit expensive, they are worth it. Did not try their breads, etc., but will in the future. Very nice!

“Real French - Vrai Francais”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Real French pastries as someone who lives in France I can vouch for it! The 'pain au raisin' was superb plenty of raisins and sort of 1/2 between bread and croissant and a good size too, cakes, tarts, and from time to time 'croche en bouche' what more could you ask for! Well what about 'financiers' and 'cruet a the' the marzipan over kill which my wife prefers over all other choices of which there are so many here. OK so America has a sweet tooth here is the emporium for all those with this affliction. Worth the visit from far away
