So many delicious and beautiful desserts to choose from we had to share 3! The location is a great mostly pedestrian street ( only occasional cars tried to make it down the street) with several restaurants and shops. Fun place to have dessert!

Cute place but the overall experience was not great. I tried to communicate in English but the blond girl was looking at me shocked and keep responding in French. The food was ok-ish. The toasts are pre-made and after reheated they are not as good...More

Very good food with outstanding presentation. This bakery also has very good quiche. If traveling from the US remember this is a European style bakery so the sweets are not quite as sweet as what you are used to back home.

The best Palmiers around. Hands down.. Good place to get fresh pastries and what not, but we went back several times for their Palmiers. Caramelized perfection!
