Pretty traditional choices for French breakfast and lovely choices in the bakery. Nice outdoor patio and counter if its crowded. Also seems to have a cast of local regular locals that make it an even more pleasant experience.

Absolutely everything here is over the top delicious. Frequented by both locals & tourists, so you know it has to be good. The morning roll was a must every day, just delish with cinnamon and all things good. Irristable!

Popped in here to pick up pastries for breakfast. Love that they had a few gluten free options. My GF muffin was very good and my friend said her pastry (not GF) was wonderful. Stop in if you are near the plaza in the mornings.
