Food is always fresh and very French, especially the pastries! Staff are always helpful to me as I take my aged father in his mid 90's.

How anyone in their wildest dreams can write a review like the one below mine on this place is just....bonkers!!! Wonderful find amongst our 7 week trip around Australia, really nice to pop into France for breakfast. Every item looks like it has been made with complete love and attention to detail, almost a shame to eat it, could spend ages just looking at it!!!! We are here in Albany for a few days, unfortunately hit the cafe at rush hour and made a snap decision on what to eat but enjoyed every mouthful. Even though busy the young girl explained in great detail the different items they sold. We have had a really good study of the food counter as we left so we know what we are having for our breakfast the next few days. FYI we had a quiche which was wonderful, beautiful pastry and a pain au raisin which certainly is equal or not better than any I have had in France. Just shows how caring the people who run this place are that they replied to the bad review below, this always show a passion for what someone does.

Stodgy French. Over cooked. Low on taste but massive on price. Must be mining the goodwill? Sacre blueh.

Dear Richard B
We do not and have never thought it would be possible to appeal to every customer who walks through our doors.
But after more than 4.5 years in business it is not too difficult to discern the motivation behind a review.
For the benefit of potential clients reading this response, our prices are more than competitive with other local business of a similar kind. Mining the goodwill, I don't think so as to date we have appealed to many more clients than not.
But we are French/Australian and unsure if this is somehow an issue for you?
You claim our food is stogdy and low on taste, it would be great to know what you actually tasted as this is not a description we have ever received in our 4.5years?
Did you actually visit us or are you showing your support for the local fish & chip shop to whom you gave rave reviews?
Guess we will never know.
Regards
Janette

I was there this morning, early, and waved to the owner/patisserie chef when he appeared with a new offering! Delightful morsel. Gluten free - not that I am.
The food available is so well presented, enticing, and I know delicious it makes for a hard decision.

We visited Gourmandise & Co this morning for breakfast...... wow, we almost stayed for lunch. A real gem in Albany, Western Australia The Baked Sweet Spiced rice was beautiful and creamy and the croissants were excellent. Took us straight back to France. Great coffee. Staff lovely and friendly, nice atmosphere. We will definitely return. Thank you.
