We stumbled upon this little jewel of a cafe on our yearly trip to Hilton Head. It’s a lovely little spot for a chocolate tart or latte! We’ve been back twice on this trip and will definitely be back again!

Good coffee and chocolate croissants but the selection was a little low. We had an issue with our coffee and they were very gracious and corrected things which was very nice.

I stopped here recently and had a cup of coffee and a tasty peach and almond tart. I will be returning again to try something else, and I'm sure it will be just as delicious!

Would not recommend this if you are looking for a good latte, or anything of the sort. No skill in using an espresso machine or such, in fact it was almost comical. Almost no communication with customers. Highly dissatisfied, and disappointed 😔 If you are...More

We always stop at the French Kiss Bakery for pain au chocolat, croissants, and more. Pastries are so delicious! So many yummy choices; something for everyone. It wouldn't be a visit to Hilton Head Island without our visit(s) to French Kiss Bakery.
