Need breakfast out if the house and tried Bien Cuit. The drinks and food was outstanding and we got good advice from well trained staff. Personally I would eat at Bien Cuit every morning.

We love coming here often because of their croissants! It’s so flavorful! Their breads are amazing as well but we really enjoy their croissants and their mini buns. Lovely place to enjoy their baked goods.

This place was delicious! We discovered it on a food tour with Urban Adventures & returned to get their 3 day aged sourdough (Miche) to take home, we enjoyed it all week after that...thank you!

Great pastries, breads, and coffee at Bien Cuit. Service is...pretentious, sometimes downright rude. But everything they have is fantastic.
