“Great pastries and bread, okay sandwiches”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

We went there for lunch and were both pretty unimpressed with our sandwiches. We had heard that their quiches are good, but they were out when we went. We got there after 1pm and you probably need to get there earlier because they seem to run out of things quickly. However, the french bread they served with the meal and the pastries we got for dessert made up for the sandwiches. They were so delicious. We had mini Napoleons, backlava, and a pineapple coconut filled pastry. The eclairs also looked yummy but we were too full to eat more. For lunch they also offered some soups and salads but I might recommend skipping lunch and going just for some coffee and a snack or picking up bread and pastries to go.

“Best bakery in Town”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

The baked goods are superlative. We especially enjoy their poms (elephant ears), which they usually run out of. They also export them to other shops in the area.

“Nice sandwich shop, but "french" bread?”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

If you are from France, you will be disappointed. But the tomato soup and the egg salad sandwich are very good. There are some nice pastries also.

“Great Quiche and French pastries!”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Good place for lunch or a snack! This is the best place in Memphis for French pastries. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their food. A small place in a antique mall that has seating out side the restaurant but inside the mall. It feels like you are sitting at a cafe.
