I have been here a few times and I have to say, each time the choices are spectacular, the quality outstanding and the care and thoughtfulness awesome. Every town should wish they had a bakery like this. It is really truly something very special.....you'll be stunned at the flavor profiles, the quality and beauty of each presentation. WOW!

Worth the trip to the Highlands! Delicious baked goods and great customer service. We travel over an hour just to buy their coconut cake.

Having lived in France for some time it's very hard to find a good croissant the United States. Flaky tart never disappoints.

A fine French bakery by any standard. Quite small, not for eating in. Everything baked in small quantities so they do run out of customer favorites. A bit expensive.

This bakery is amazing...everything they produce tastes wonderful including the flaky croissants and scones. Wish they had better coffee, but everything else is awesome

A fabulous patisserie type shop with a wonderful array of lovely cakes and fancies. A firm discipline is necessary to avoid being a real pig!
