This little patisserie is simply amazing. The decor is just the sweetest…so fresh and homely in a very French way, which is really funny considering it’s in Chinatown. The staff are wonderful and so welcoming. The star of course is the fare….omg the cakes and...pastries are sooooo delicious and the coffee is great as well.More

Feel I need to counterbalance the grumpy folks who might leave those with an inaccurate view of this wonderful bakery located near Chinatown in Victoria. if you arrive late in the afternoon many of their more popular items might be gone. It is a testament...to how popular they are. One of if not the best bakeries in Victoria IMHO. We frequented there mid-afternoon and had a wonderful orange-cream cake to celebrate my birthday. If you want to experience the place at its best arrive early to see the place at its best.After we ate we spoke at length with the owner a truly wonderful person who shared her family history in the area and gave us some recommendations for non-touristy dinner spots. when we return to Victoria we will stop here againMore

Macarons were airy and sweet but not very flavorful. Except for the different colors I would not know what they were. They are open until 5pm but were out of most things by 2pm so I would get there early if you want to choose...from a nice selection of pastries.More

First thing first, this is not a French bakery. It’s more of French inspired bakery. If you have ever been to France and know how French patisserie taste like well… it’s not this. The tarte pistache and coffee was really bad. The crust was burnt...and you could barely taste the pistachio. The tiramisu was probably the best part and you guessed it, it’s Italian. It wasn’t good by any means but it was ok. We also had a vegan puff and it wasn’t great. We have a lot of great patisseries in Calgary so we were really disappointed by La Roux. Service was very nice though.More

Hello Badiha, I am sorry you did not enjoy your experience. I fear you might have come late in our day when our more traditional French pastries were sold out (Paris-Brest, eclair, profiterole). On that subject, yes we are French inspired. I love thé culture....More

We were lucky not to get caught in a lineup when we popped in on Saturday. We purchased 6 different items and they were all exquisite. The only place comparable that I have been to might be Sandrines in Kelowna and a couple places in...the States. This is not Tim Horton donuts, nor is the pricing, but if you want some scratch French excellence then you should definitely stop in. Your senses will thank you.More

Ended our celebration with dessert, coffee and drink. A very busy place because when we passed them for our lunch they had lots of choices and by the time we went there about 4:00 pm they had less choices. Would recommend you buy their delicious...right away they are just popular! Anyways, we managed to still snag 3 amazing desserts. They were soooo good and melted in your mouth. The young lady even made an extra effort to create a beautiful design on my latte which certainly ended my day beautifully. The place is very European and had a great ambience. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a desserts and more!More

I was invited to a dinner upon arriving on the island and offers to bring dessert. I was thrilled to see that this place was open and had a wonderful selection of scrumptious treats. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. They even made...a suggestion of a nearby coffee shop that has tasty paninis for my hungry husband. I will return to sit and enjoy one of their yummy desserts with a nice coffee.More

Found this place on a self guided walk around. Everything we tried was amazing. Had Paris Brest, Almond Croissant, Chocolate Croissant and a dozen macarons. If I lived near this place I would be the size of a house. Oat milk flat white needed a...couple more shots but was good and hot.More
