“A True Taste of France after a real recent visit.”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

After a genealogy lecture, my wife and I stopped in to the Gourmet Bakery Café in the back of The Woodlands for a quick lunch. Interestingly we had just returned from a 3-week vacation in France. The French family who run this bakery and café were as welcoming and friendly as always and the food was super. We noticed how it has become a gathering place for a real international crowd in The Woodlands. We heard French, Spanish, "British English", one unknown language (maybe Portuguese?), and "Texan", all by the same lunch crowd! My wife had the LE PROVENÇAL sandwich with PORTABELLA MUSHROOM, SPINACH, GOAT CHEESE, PESTO AND FIG SPREAD. I opted with the Texan sandwich with HAM, SMOKED BACON, SCRAMBLED EGG, LETTUCE AND TOMATO. Both were wonderful. We finished with an absolutely delicious house-made lemon tart and Cafe Au Lait and Cappuccino. The cappuccino was one of the best cups I have ever had. It is clear why this has become such a popular place.

“True Neighborhood Gem”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The owners are French and this bakery/cafe has a European flare. If you are in a hurry, plan on takeout rather than eat in. But you are really missing a great experience if you rush out. The food is excellent and the family is warm and friendly. It is a blessing to our neighborhood.
