Restaurant details

The lady who owns this place was most likely trained by professional French chefs and maybe in France. She knows what she is doing. And the prices are good. 1.50 for a small
round loaf....in NYC that would be 7$. Its in the big old yellow building downtown. The google map has it in the wrong location. She is kind of a serious gal but knows bread and pastry like you wish you did.

I saw a piece about the bakery on a local TV show and couldn't wait to try it. We stopped in the bakery on our way home from a vacation in Pittsburg, NH. When we entered the first thing that struck me, beyond the wonderful smell, was how comfortably elegant it was decorated. It was so inviting that if I wasn't with my Husband, who was anxious to get back on the road, I would have loved to have eaten in the bakery. We were greeted by a friendly woman behind the counter who was helpful, answering all my questions and gave excellent recommendations. We bought country bread, a few different kinds of madelines, raspberry filled cookies, and a variety of croissants to bring home. Everything that we tried was amazingly good. Can't wait to go again!

When you get to Colebrook, NH, you're probably on your way even further north to The Balsams or even Canada; so most likely, the only reason to stop in this town is to eat, take a potty break, and have tea or coffee. We went into this seeming tearoom to do just that, but we were met with a most unfriendly entrepreneur who barely spoke when we came in from the cold weather. No menu was posted, so we asked if she had hot tea; and with her French listening ability, she thought we said something else and almost snapped at us. Her pastries are beautiful, and several apparent local customers came in while we were there to buy them. She didn't acknowledge that she knew them, either. When I asked how long she'd lived here (as her French accent was quite heavy), she replied, "Eight years." There is a great selection of wonderful cookies and breads, packaged spices and other cooking ingredients; but her unfriendliness and unwelcoming attitude made us want to leave quickly. The only has three small seating areas in there, so perhaps she doesn't really want walk-in tearoom business. On plus is that she has a few gluten-free bakery items. By admission, she doesn't accept "plastic cards;" so if you go in, be sure you have cash.
