“The Best Eclairs and Tarts”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

A great place. I went here with some friends. The setting is very romantic and perfect to take a date. They make the best tarts and the best eclairs(both pistachio and regular) Plenty of seating room. It's very difficult to find a dessert that you don't like here. :]

“Decadent Macaron”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Six of us with 3 children went there for their colorful Macarons. Very tasty, fillings were sweet and rich and beautiful. We also ordered coffee; beware no decaf available. Also be careful if beverage you want before ordering; we made a mistake of ordering 1 coffee first, and told them we wanted two coffee. They charged us for three coffees even when we clarified that it was only two coffees we wanted. Even with 24 macaroons we ordered the store still made us 'eat' our mistake - not good customer relations.

“Just like France!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

I have lived in France, and just walking by this place and smelling the pastries baking in the early morning, it took me right back to the streets of Provence <3 the staff was friendly, and the pain au chocolat and macarons were spot on. Expensive, but completely worth it.

“A favorite”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stop in here fairly often for their delicious macarons. They have a pretty large selection in a variety of creative flavors, including a little cafe space in the back where you can enjoy them right there on the spot if you want.

“Someone pinch me, quick!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

On a stroll back to our hotel on 35th, we ran across this little bakery specializing in macaroons. Having never tried one myself, I was excited to try one. Well, it's kind of like having a Lays chip. You can't eat just one... here!
Pride is abundant here. Pride in their establishment, pride in there product and pride to have customers visit.
Congrats!
