Small bakery with the most deliciously moist almond croissants. We go to Hilton Head once a year for a week and visit this bakery at least a few times to stock up on fresh pastries to have with our coffee in the mornings.

If you are looking for your morning coffee and pastry with newspaper, this is your place. Not a large assortment of pastry, but what they have are really good.

´Tis a grand day. The French Kiss Bakery is very reminiscent of our recent tour of Paris. It does not require serendipity to local this small bakery. There were four people in The French Kiss Bakery, and all were speaking French. We recommend any product that contains chocolate.

We've been to the bakery twice in the last two weeks and both times we had amazingly delicious pastries. On our first visit we had a cinnamon bun and a strawberry/cheese croissant. Both had been freshly baked and were still warm from the oven. On our second visit, we had a traditional croissant and an almond croissant...again warm from the... More

Petite boutique, the best Batard or Galette des Rois so far. The chef is good and the owner really nice. I miss more chocolates....

We had the pleasure of stumbling on to this bakery after a morning walk on the beach. Johnny was super nice and we very much enjoyed chatting with him. My daughter and husband had glazed donuts and bagel. I had coffee. I have been watching my diet so I did not partake in the pastries myself (although they looked amazing).... More

Stopped here after our bike ride on the Atlantic Ocean beach. This cute little bakery is located in the back corner of a shopping area near Coligny Circle. We ordered and enoyed a cinamon roll and a Napoleon with flaky crust and custard filling. Great thing about vacations is enjoying treats.
