Cute little place with delicious fare. Excellent napoleons, croissants, and croque monsieurs. They have tiny versions of some pastries; this allows you to sample a chocolate eclair, a napoleon, etc. all in one visit, without discomfort. Good flavor selection of macarons with beautiful colors, sweeter than others we have tried but I didn't complain!

I live nearby and had never visited this little cafe and bakery. Boy, was I in store for a treat. I picked a box of different dessert confections to take to a dinner party and everyone found something they loved. I highly recommend this little place.

Bought a dozen macaroons as a gift while staying in Middletown. The assortment of pastries made the choice very difficult. The macaroons were delicious.

I like this bakery, but it seems, over the years, some of the pastries look and taste like frozen pre packaged foods. Perhaps the owner has been in this country so long he needs to go back to France to freshen up on his flavour. They are very nice people, but the pastries aren't as good as they used to be.

Thank you for calling our attention to your concerns. We can assure you that we do not buy our pastries from anywhere else but we will start sampling ingredients and whole pastries more often to be sure that the recipes don't stray off course. If you have specific pastries in mind, we'd be happy to address those first.
