Oo La La … just spent 3 days in Albany and went to this place every morning. A nice French touch and the baked eggs are highly, highly recommended as are the buttery croissants, the quiches, pastries, opera gateux, blueberry tart and, of course, the...macarons. You’ll need a few days to try everything but do it, you won’t be disappointedMore

We always call in here for breakfast when in Albany and it is always outstanding. Janet and the staff are friendly and welcoming and we always take croissants and pastries back home with us.

Visited 6 years ago when I was very impressed, so was interested to see if it had changed. It hadn't, it was still a little slice of Paris with tasty treat offerings and a great atmosphere. Took a while to get served (I understand there...is a widespread staff shortage) but was worth the wait.More

Found this place on our last day in Albany after a recommendation. Such a lovely place! Walked in and we felt like we were in France ! It is lovingly decorated in memorabilia and gourmet gifts and has music playing in The background. The owners...and staff are very friendly and welcoming. The food is amazing. We had a delicious breakfast and also took home some pastries to eat later. Certainly recommend it!More

Great little place in the heart of Albany and always busy with locals and tourists alike. The bread and pastries are great and I can recommend the baked eggs from the wood fired oven yum. Only open Tues to Saturday

The first time we called into this cafe it was 1pm and they had run out of food. Great recommendation to go back we thought. Our next visit was a Saturday morning. They were out of control, it took 15 minutes in line to order....Staff appeared to wander around with food unsure of where to deliver it. We received our pastries quickly but my coffee was slow, and not hot when received. By this time we were ready to move on. It wasn’t our number one experience in Albany.More

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!
