Good bakeries are becoming a dying breed so whenever you find one, you feel as though you've struck gold or oil in your backyard.

Was pleasantly surprised with the apple croissant, was very moist and flavorful, will go back soon to try other pastries. They have a whole lot to choose from! The owner is genuinely friendly, not just an "air" to put on for business

Fresh and tasty desserts will leave you thinking your diet can wait. In addition to the many varied and delicious desserts and pastries, they also carry several different quiches. Great place to stop for carry home desserts, eat in for a late afternoon snack, or a fresh breakfast.

Stopped here on a whim, looking for a quick breakfast. Left with a wonderful few pastries, a owner that is very pleasant and nice and an overall sense of pride for supporting a great small business with an amazing product. Will come back, sooner rather than later.

While on vacation in Sarasota recently, my wife and I discovered Gulf Gate village. There are countless restaurants featuring all types of ethnic foods. But for us, the reason for our return visits is Ooh La La French Bakery. It is an appropriate name as that is what you will say when you try one of their incredible pastries. Nancy... More

Excellent pastries -- delicious croissants and great bread. There is simply nothing to criticize. The owner/chef adds a touch of personal friendliness.

We are new to Sarasota and do love French bakeries so were delighted to find OLL. We have been twice and ate in both times. Absolutely loved the Paris inspired decor. The servers were exceptionally friendly and the owner, Nancy, is hands on. The selection of pastries and quiche is large. We find it difficult to select - we want... More
