Awesome array of elegant desserts. I bought multiple desserts for a birthday celebration. They were delicious. Plus I got lunch while I was there. Again delicious!

On our way through CT from Long Island my wife and i were lucky to find this fantastic authentic family owned French Bakery. The owners and their children are so approachable, friendly and really make you feel at home with light discussion and great smiles. Their pastries are absolutely phenomenal. The quiches are as delicious as well. I see that... More

Stopped here on out drive from New Haven to NY to have breakfast and loved it! It was all French bread and pastries, freshly baked, run by both owners and their daughter. The quiche and chocolate croissants were delicious! Would love to have back there again!

Very good selection of items in a nice setting. Have tried several over several visits all very good. I think it is a bit pricey otherwise would be a more frequent visitor. Try it I think you will like it

Try all the baguettes, including my favorite , multigrain. The tarts are delicious, albeit a bit expensive. But who cares, it's like walking into another lovely world, where French is spoken, and the bread is warm and delicious.
