Went in for coffee and a beignet, it was so delicious I actually craved another one so went back and bought some more. I love this place when you want something that you cannot get anywhere else in town. The pastries are so delicious

Dawn runs a bakery, bistro, and artists colony. Her special dinners and white tastings are exquisite! She bakes her own bread and the cheeses are from all around the world; her pastries are made with the purest and best ingredients. (Try the brownies or grasshopper bars!) her Sunday brunches are as well known as her entertaining newsletters. And there's always... More

Me and my mom went to Le Petit Marche after lunch and we bought biscotti, chocolate brioche, and chocolate chip cookies. The biscotti was very bland and beyond stale (It wouldn't even soften when dipped in coffee). The brioche was bland as well. The cookies were good. I think that we would give this bakery another chance but we would... More

Great food and right across from Raue Center. We enjoyed sitting on the bench outside the bakery enjoying a cup of coffee with our pastries.

It is difficult to know what is available to eat in here without actually talking to someone who works here. Confusing menu situation and the hours seem erratic. However, the food is fresh and home made which is great. Don't expect fine dining because you won't get that here. There are very basic tables and a very limited menu. It... More

You never know what they may have or when they are open. But when they are there, they have good stuff.

Decided to take a side-trip off the highway trying to find something different as a place for lunch and are happy that we did. When ordering a Grilled Cheese with bacon they apologized for the wait as it was necessary to cook the bacon fresh. Who would have a problem waiting a bit for fresh? It was well worth the... More
