Great coffee and service. I enjoyed the quiche Lorraine on more than one occasion. Others in my party raved about the croissants and breakfast sandwiches.

Fabulous croissants and the other food looked tasty and fresh too. Forget the coffee though...better to be found elsewhere.

Great little place off the beaten path that offers fresh baked items and sandwiches. Food is very good, quite reasonable and the décor is quaint. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

One of a kind bakery and desert shop in a beautiful historic building. They also have lighter sandwiches like chicken sald for lunches. We opted for a sweet snack and it was delicious. Highly recommended.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
