ate here two days in a row. don't miss trying it. very nice staff. When we didn't have enough Canadian dollars for our purchase they told us ok, no problem and accepted less from us for the food. Unbelievable in this world.

Nice bakery but had better on this trip. Pastries were nothing too special and atmosphere was just ok for dine in coffee and breakfast.

A discovery by chance. Wonderful ham and cheese on baguette. Coffee a bit watery, lacked flavour. Desserts seem to be favorite. Will be back for croissants and chocolatines.

Their sandwiches are really tasty, but it's too much for breakfast. Unfortunately many of the Sandwiches or baguettes contain mustard, not everyones choice... The bread itself is really great, i guess the baker knows his work... Staff was nice but hardly spoke English...

I visited the place twice: once for coffee break and for lunch. Good quality for the price. I had coffee and croissant and it was delicous. Also, for a lunch they have nice options of sandwiches.

We phoned two weeks ahead for an order of their croissants. We did not get what we wanted as someone forgot to pass on the order to the bakers. We had to settle for alternative options which were not as good (e.g., ham-cheese croissant). The staff apologized for the mix up and offered some items for free as compensation. They... More

Be sure to arrive early in the morning or you will be disappointed that many goods have sold out. Even sandwiches are often sold out by early in the morning. The bread is heavenly. They offer many varieties such as olive and blueberry. The croissants melt in your mouth, I'm ruined for all other croissants. The sandwiches are yummy and... More
