I was on my Business Trip, I dropped my Customers & waiting for them. When I found Legal Parking, I saw this Bakery and went inside. A small Bakery, and good & tastey Items. Nice and Clean. Great outside sitting arrangement, but it was raining very hard, so could not really enjoy the Feeling of sitting outside.

I don't know if I could have finished the... More

We had breakfast at L'artisan and loved it. French like pastries, croissants and also wraps and sanduiches. Great capuccinos, smoothies, yougurts, in a nice environment. There are some outdoor tables in the small square where it is located, where you can spend some time watching the time goes by, if the weather is nice. A limited choice of salads and... More

I have been here several times for a coffee, salad, dessert, and wine. The best thing this place has going for it, is the location. There is a large triangular patio area right in the middle of Wayland Square, which is prime. The interior is modern but artsy. The downside of this apparently upscale cafe, is the teenage staff don't... More

Some of my friends do not like the big chain coffee place," You know the one, and some don't like the expensive one from the west coast. That being said, anytime I have someone visiting I bring them to L'artisan located at 9 Wayland Square in Providences east side. They have a wide selection of pastries and coffees. The service...

The best cafe in the best square, cafe has delicious food/bakery, coffee. Indoor outdoor seating. WiFi. Best sushi across st., and best irish pub next door and shopping, what more could u ask for. Parking behind pub, kind of quirky, only on one side of parking lot is legal. Used book store around corner.

Friendly place with very tasty pastry (had mini eclair), decent coffee ( but not an extraordinary as other review suggest). Attentive staff. Will come back if in the neighborhood. Could be a bit more cosy in side to be truest French.

Love this little cafe/bistro! Best cappuccino ever! Eat at one of the outdoor tables and you'll feel like you're in France.
