The owner greeted me with a friendly Bonjour! I chose a simple croissant, but what better way to judge a French bakery. It was delicious, light, buttery, but not overly sweet. The restaurant is cheerfully decorated with artwork and games available on some of the...More

The first thing about this bakery is its rather strange location. it is not visible from the road or the parking lot that you will pull into. It is around the side and the front door faces I-85 but it's worth searching for as you...More

Warm delicious smells waft through the door as you enter the tiny patisere lots of small tables beckon you to grab a coffee and a pastry and linger. The cranberry pecan bread, cinnamon buns and croissants are wonderful. They have quiche pies napoleons. So try...More
