  • I live in the neighborhood and been coming here for years. Be warned: the croissants are very inconsistent.
  • Skip the croissants, have the quiche.
  • Floppy, buttery croissants and pain au chocolat, both a little unorthodox but easy to love; a silky-creamed and intensely nutty hazelnut cake; and fruit tarts with golden shortbread-like tart shells.
  • wait for just out of oven batch of croissants - trust me you will swoon!
  • Try the Apricot Tart
  • The best.
  • Croissants!!
  • Just an incredible chestnut cake
  • Hot cross buns and Easter cakes flavored with Grand Mariner and chocolate.
  • Baby quiches and coffee eclairs are a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
  • If you are like me "day must start with a chocolate croissant" you'd move in the apartment above!!
  • Amazing pain au chocolate.
  • I was expecting the chocolate croissant to be great, but it set a new bar. It's flaky and unashamedly buttery with a slightly-bitter chocolate filling you'll come back for again and again.
  • Sweet Mary Mother of God. The chocolate croissant. Pain au chocolat...amazing. Best I have had outside Paris.
  • The almond croissants are amazing when fresh.
  • Pain Au chocolat- hot out of the oven. Delicious.
  • Neighborhood spot for French pastries - no frills here. Not what you'd expect for a French bakery - love the straightforward approach.
  • Amazing croissants, good coffee
  • Pain au chocolat. Grab your pastries & head across the street to the Coffee Foundry for your caffeine fix though. (They're friends of the owner & have more seating.)
  • The macarons were incredible and the almond tarte sublime. The perfect treat before heading to Axis Theatre around the corner: a win-win!
