“Opera Cream Cake - Best Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

A must try in Cincinnati. When I lived in New Jersey, I had my friends bring me a piece of Opera Cream Cake to share with the baker of my wedding cake - it didn't even compare. I should've just had it shipped in. They have many other great treats too I'm just obsessed with that cake. Be prepared it's very rich.

“Overrated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Their cakes are not very good and they are way too expensive. They are not "French" in any way, shape or form (and I've been to France several times) so I hope people don't this that because of the name. For good pastry you would be better off going to Graeters or Servattis or even Busken's is better than this stuff. Stay far, far away!!

“Gross food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Their cakes may be good (but pricey) but their food, which is mostly finger foods is average. I would not recommend wasting an afternoon here.

“One of the best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

The Bonbonerie consistently turns out among the most beautiful and delicious baked goods in town. Everything always looks fantastic and the taste pretty well matches. If you want standard bakery fare, however, don't go. Everything here is much richer and more strongly flavored- real butter, not erzatz, real cream, no mixes. You pay a lot, but you get the best.
