There is a large selection ranging from healthy rolls to sugar highs. We opted for a bit of both. Was it expensive? I don't really know, but assume it was reasonable as so many people were eating here or ordering Take Aways. (Take Out). We...More

The place is crowded, noisy and the food is mediocre quality. We had their couscous salad and it was good, very tasty. On the other hand, the spinach quiche was terrible. The crust tasted like wet cardboard and the filling was tasteless.

Such a wonderful stop for coffee and pastry. Only difficult decision will be choosing which beautiful pastry or cake or cookie to enjoy. I had an eclair, which was beautifully done, tender Pâte à choux shell with a delicious not too sweet true custard cream...More

This place is terrible. Their pain au chocolat was stale and tasteless, their flan was grainy and tasted of rancid vegetable oil, their latte was served to me cold, their staff is pushy and unfriendly, I was asked 3 times if I had made up...More

This is kind of a lunch counter type operation right in the market. Its pretty close to the Parliament Buildings and the tourist areas and is well worth the walk. The food is excellent, French influenced gourmet and at reasonable prices. This time we had...More
