No restroom. No coffee. No place to seat. Staff quite uninterested in explaining the products. Flies in the store. I was expecting something totally different based on the reviews.

Outstanding French pastries! Especially the fruit tarts and cookies. I do wish they had danishes, more savory buns and better choco croissants though - that would just about make it perfect!
