Usually I am skeptical to dining at french restaurants and french cafes as a foodie with severe food allergies, because typically french food uses almond oil in most dishes and in the kitchen. With anaphylaxis, only 10% of the allergen protein needs to be present for a severe (deadly) reaction to occur. So you can imagine how much bravery it... More

Usually I am skeptical about dining at French food or French cafe anything with an almond allergy because a lot of times they use almond oil in all the food and kitchen area. However, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the French Onion Soup is made seperate from all other foods and almond free as well as nut free.... More

When I'm in town, I make sure to visit. Having spent significant time in France, I appreciate a proper croissant and this is a wonderful place to find one, albeit in huge American portions. I love the almond and classic croissants here. I've had lunch sandwiches and they are delicious on great baguette. Tried a few of the other pastries... More

Their cakes, croissants and pastries are amazing. I love their chocolate cake. Only thing, their coffee is kinda odd.

Their little cakes and desserts are amazing! The coffee is only mid-range, but breakfast and desserts are mind blowing.

Coming back from France, I was really craving for authentic french style flaky pastry croissant. Not the usual fluffy ones found in the US. Having gone a few times. It was hard to decide whether to award a average or very good rating to this place. Pros: Lots of curb appeal. Beautiful pastry case Nice sidewalk tables in the warm... More

This a good spot for a coffee & pastry or a light meal with quiche, sandwiches, etc. Good coffee, nice decor. Any visit is a good excuse to take home some pastries, too. Macarons, Napoleons, tartes, mousses, eclairs, and those ever-so-hard-to-find canneles. Outdoor tables are nicely enclosed from the sidewalk for an illusion of privacy. Only criticism is that the...

So everything I've had here has been really good. I especially like the ham and cheese croissant and also the sea salt cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal cookies they make there. I'll usually have a coffee or mocha with them. All their baked items tastes really fresh. Price is a little on the expensive side, but worth it to me as... More
