Celebrated completing the Stirling Range Ridge Walk with a bowl of hearty French rice pudding, fruit and cardamon for breakfast at Gourmandise in Albany. It was to be a 2 hour breakfast feast with my family and friends. Everything was superb, as usual. Thank you...so much for the wonderful food Xavier! Made the walk all the more worthwhile.More

Having tried Gourmandise in September we just had to return to enjoy the beautiful breakfast/brunch they deliver and we were not disappointed! Couldn't leave Albany without a Baguette french butter and some patisseries! The owners are amazing and the staff attentive - Please dont close...as we plan to visit again in the near future!

You are welcomed into the home (cafe) by the very passionate owners who know and appreciate quality and taste. The food is made in house, on premises with love and passion.

Very hard to beat with great location, staff and the selection of French inspired food. Coffee is important and this pasts the taste test. No bitter trendy rubbish here. Look forward to my next visit

My Husband and I had brunch here. We did attempt to go to lunch on a previous day but kitchen was closed .The chef prepares everything fresh and when sold out . That's it. Far enough. My quiche was delicious. My husband had a Ham...tomato and cheese Panini. He said it was nice but too expensive at $18.50 . We have travelled to France many times and are aware of the quality and effort that goes into preparation but this was a little steep. Presentation was outstanding Coffee good and service to match.More

Not having visited Gourmandise & Co for several years I was keen to get back there and get my fix of genuine French cooking. And sure enough, I was as equally delighted each of the half-dozen times I dropped in for a coffee and pastry...as I had been in the past. The service is always friendly and as prompt as possible, bearing in mind that at this time in Australia there is a dire shortage of casual staff of all kinds, including wait staff. Customer attention is always devoted to each person and their order, you always get the feeling that you and your needs are recognised. You're not just a number or an amount of revenue. The atmosphere is truly and authentically French. It's easy to imagine being in Nice or some other French town on the coast, being so close the harbour with water views. The decor of the cafe is obviously refreshed constantly , striving to give customers that true French feeling, an authentic reflection of the Nationality of the chef. Importantly the coffee is barista-made, beautifully flavoured, and very reasonably priced, consistent with pricing in other cafes in the area. The food is prepared by the French chef means that all food, including for example croissants, escargots & quiches are authentic. The escargots & cinnamon rolls that I sampled the most often are exquisitely fragrant, buttery, being composed of perfectly made French pastry. All offerings are made by hand early in the morning of the day intended for consumption. This cafe is popular with local people which means that sometimes there can be a run on popular offerings such as escargots. Fear not. The almondine, filled with wonderful creme patisserie and some kind of fruit, was my substitute, and oh my goodness, was I happy about that! So gorgeous in the mouth!! There are many other choices, see my images. The French bread and all pastries are baked in a wood-fired oven. I love the food, the very visible chef supervising all orders, the decor and ambience. Sometimes though I wished that more than a single copy of each of the major newspapers read in Western Australia were available. It's awkward when other customers are solving the crossword in these publications. For me, a visit to Albany is incomplete without a visit to Gourmandise & Co. And don't forget, its not unexpected to have a French presence in the town. There are plenty of land marks around Albany with French names to remind us that the site almost became a French settlement.More

Went for breakfast and coffee. Seating is unusual and as a couple we had to sit at a rather large table as there were no other options. The seats are solid wood and HARD! I was able to swap chairs with another table that wasn't...using all their chairs... if I hadn't my back would've been very sore by the end of brekky. Coffee was okay, not excellent but cafe good. Breakfast was quite nice, fresh avocado,More
