We recently visited this bakery after reading good reviews and were quite disappointed for the second time. We walked in and there was no one there and the person working there did not really greet us or make us feel welcome. We had just visited to get a dessert and some expresso. The expresso was not very good and the... More

Have visited for lunch a number of times. Each visit was a joy. Be careful not to look at the wonderful case of French pastries. They can be dangerous to your waistelinè.

Good food and pastries. Good service. Pleasant little spot. Outdoor patio, cute, but noisy. A nice break from the tourist traps and chains.

We have always loved this restaurant! Wonderful service, food is delicious, and the desserts are out of this world! Outside dining, which we love, with a lovely fountain, but the view is of a . . . gasp. . . parking lot!!

This little gem of an eatery and French bakery in La Quinta is my go to place for lunch. It has a quaint atmosphere with great food. Their fresh baked daily bread and pastries are absolutely wonderful. They also have outside patio dining weather permitting which is delightful. They are also open for breakfast and dinner. I frequently have the... More

This is one of my fav "go to" spots when we have visitors. I pick up one of their creamy delicious quiches and an apple tart and soak up the rave reviews. We particularly like to go sit on the patio and enjoy a latte and breakfast. Good people watching too.

Had breakfast here twice on our way to the Indian Wells Tennis Tournament. We had a good experience both times. The Phil Mickelson Eggs Benedict, feta cheese omelet and bread rolls were all good and the almond croissant was excellent - just as good as ones I have had in France. We liked the outside patio area with the fountain... More

A couple who lives at La Quinta resort recommended that we have breakfast here. We were excited to try it. We arrived at approximately 8:30 a.m. on Thursday. There were people seated at three tables outside when we arrived. We waited to be seated and were told someone would be by to take our order. It got very busy and... More

I was looking forward to eating here after reading some great reviews. However, it was a disappointment. I ordered their house specialty ...a spinach fritatta with Brie. Yes, it had those ingredients but, someone needs to teach them how to cook. What was presented was probably 3 eggs mixed with some fresh spinach topped with 2 paper thin slices of... More
