Very good selection of pastry. Had a chocolate tart, Neapolitan, and fruit flan. They were all delicious. It's a little pricey but with it for a treat.

A very nice little spot to have coffee. They have a nice variety of homemade baked goods and breads. Croissants were pretty good. Patio outside was lovely and relaxing, with shade and lovely landscaping.

There was a time when this was a lovely authentic French patisserie, but no more. The paintings and music can't cover up the fact that their baked goods are clearly prebaked and frozen, and defrosted each day to serve. The coffee is pretty good, prices...More
