´Tis a grand day. The French Kiss Bakery is very reminiscent of our recent tour of Paris. It does not require serendipity to local this small bakery. There were four people in The French Kiss Bakery, and all were speaking French. We recommend any product that contains chocolate.

We've been to the bakery twice in the last two weeks and both times we had amazingly delicious pastries. On our first visit we had a cinnamon bun and a strawberry/cheese croissant. Both had been freshly baked and were still warm from the oven. On our second visit, we had a traditional croissant and an almond croissant...again warm from the... More

Petite boutique, the best Batard or Galette des Rois so far. The chef is good and the owner really nice. I miss more chocolates....

We had the pleasure of stumbling on to this bakery after a morning walk on the beach. Johnny was super nice and we very much enjoyed chatting with him. My daughter and husband had glazed donuts and bagel. I had coffee. I have been watching my diet so I did not partake in the pastries myself (although they looked amazing).... More

Stopped here after our bike ride on the Atlantic Ocean beach. This cute little bakery is located in the back corner of a shopping area near Coligny Circle. We ordered and enoyed a cinamon roll and a Napoleon with flaky crust and custard filling. Great thing about vacations is enjoying treats.

This little shop was so cute. The girl behind the counter was so friendly and nice to talk to. Get there bright and early for fresh bread!

French bakery. (The owner was obviously French with a heavy French accent). But the pastries were VERY expensive and not even as good as you'd get from a Panera. Would not recommend it

My mother and I love to get chocolate croissants here for breakfast. This cute little bakery has a variety of tasty treats, from donuts to eclairs to fresh breads. It's located just off the bike path in Coligny, so it's easy to ride to if you're on Forest Beach. Most of the seating is outdoors in a covered porch area.

To be fair, we are looking for an alternative to our old usual place which has closed and thought we would give this place a try. The coffee is very good. The pastries were OK. The staff a little strange.
