This is a great French Bakery on Butler Street In Lawrenceville. The pastries are all delicious. You really cannot go wrong. The almond croissants are a must. I also highly recommend the flan and chocolate croissants. In addition to the pastries, the breads are great to take home for dinner. The sandwiches are very well done. The coffee is from La Prima so it is great as well.
The best time to go is during the week. You may have to wait in line on Saturday and Sunday mornings. If you get there too late on weekends, most of the selections will be gone.

Been a long time since I have had a cream puff as delicious as theirs. Also had a perfect veggie sandwich on a perfect French baguette--crunchy outside tender inside, thinly sliced cucumbers, cheese. On my second visit, I had a bread pudding with cherries-truly amazing. They also have yummy macaroons -- real raspberries in the filling. Mother's Day the line was out the door and down the block. Worth the wait !

A true taste of France in Pittsburgh! I loved the baguettes, the apricot pastry, the almond one, and anything with chocolate. C'est magnifique!

This little bakery is such a welcome addition to the atmosphere and offerings Lawrenceville provides! The owners are from France and have not Americanized their pastries or breads! You can get a sandwhich or bread or pastries and eat it there on the very few tables provided. At lunchtime you can imagine it getting rather crowded and tables being scarce! For authentic French Bakery products, you will not be disappointed!
