Excellent croissants and cappucino. It is a very busy place right at lunch time but an excellent place for a mid-afternoon break!

They were around $2 each. Not the best macarons I have had, but it was nice to try the maple one.

It is not a breakfast place ... but you can order croissant or egg sandwiches. It depends on the daily menu.

Hello - we only mail non-perishable items to the United States such as our coffee mugs, jams and caramel sauce. We are not equipped like large companies so the costs for shipping can be very expensive, usually much more... More
