´Tis a grand day. The visited The French Bakery at both locations for years on our Hilton Head Island holidays, and we visit at an appropriate time. We enjoy a bowl of Moroccan Lamb soup, and this soup is excellent. The fare is appropriate for the tariff.

We returned to the French Bakery once again this year & weren't disappointed!!! Soooo many delicious choices for breakfast! We enjoyed their bread choices for the French toast. The service was excellent & our waitress was friendly! We look forward to our trip there again on our next visit to HHI.

When I saw that the French Bakery had Croque Monsieur on the menu, I knew I needed to go there for lunch. I was not disappointed. My favorite sandwich arrived, looking delectable and dripping with melted cheese. It tasted as good as it looked! They also have another of my favorite sandwiches, the Monte Cristo. I'll try that next time.... More

My husband had their lemon infused/with fresh blueberries French Toast. and for myself the quiche Riveria with a simple arugula salad on the side with the most amazing red wine vinaigrette . Our waitress Keri was... More

The menu is definitely interesting, and the dishes well prepared. From that perspective, it was a good experience. However, we decided to be seated outside (near the parking lot of course - when will these places learn to create attractive outdoor space?). Our table was near the door, and the door was broken. It slammed loudly every time. We moved... More

For those that recall the original French Bakery in Pineland Station, this is not it. With the new ownership has come a broadening of the menu, poor service and pastries/breads that are fairly pedestrian. There are better places on the Island for breakfast, so that really isn't a draw. I would be shocked if many people could tell a difference... More

Great shame - what should be a real French Bakery experience in a great location, Fails to deliver. I have visited on several occasions, and whilst the food and coffee is OK, the service is dreadful. How after being open for quite some time, they still havent got around to training their staff, or learning how to operate an efficient... More

We went to the restaurant with friends who had been there many times before. I checked out the pastry case before we sat down. I was too full after lunch but maybe in the future. There were too many things on the menu that I liked but my husband felt the opposite. He ordered the French Dip and enjoyed it.... More
