I got a few macaroons, and a meringue the first time I went. The second time was rainbow cookies(because Winn Dixie sold out). All were good, the macaroons were great but I'm not convinced they are made there. Rainbow cookies are a bit dry. Both times I was greeted with "what would you like?" followed with "anything else?" And the... More

Initially we decided to pay a visit to this location because we were in search of fresh brioche. The website did list it as a product offered, but the staff informed us that it was only available on special occasions. Since we were there, we bought a wide selection of products including pastries, bread and cookies. The woman behind the... More

Two words: Raspberry Croissants. Buy them - as many as you can. Buy the whole tray of them. Then buy the other tray of regular croissants.

This bakery will not disappoint, if you know French pastries and bread. I go here specifically for special occasions to buy goodies as gifts.

Where to start? The croissants are a-maz-ing! The macaroons best I ever had and other various pastries are so fresh, tasty and it is definitely a place not friendly to the waist line but so worth it!

Picked up a yule log for Christmas and boy were we disappointed. Dry cake and no taste whatsoever, we got the Grand Marnier and there was no hint of flavor, no orange, no vanilla. For almost $30 what a waste. I also tried an almond tart which also had no taste or flavor. This used to be the place for... More

Without a doubt the best bakery in town! The bread is so fresh and delicious. The pastries are all beautiful and tasty. I'm glad it's not any closer to me than it is or I would be there every day!
