The pastry and dessert options are truly wonderful! I really enjoy the French breakfast, which sometimes varies (my favorite was when it included coffee/juice, croissant, and bowl of fruit). The croissants are so good that I found myself comparing it to other bakeries and coffee shops and I haven't been able to find one superior. I usually switch between the... More

The burgers are juicy. The Croque Monsieur is also delicious. I don't like salmon, but had it here and I am a fan now.

We were a party of two on a Saturday morning. We arrived around 10 AM, and were seated right away. The place was not yet busy. Breakfast/brunch is served until 3 PM on the weekends. We each ordered the Parisian Breakfast - two eggs, choice of croissant (plain or chocolate), sausage or bacon, and fresh fruit. We also had coffee.... More

Great good - great ambiance, the feel of N.Y. and good service. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our different meals. I would definitely recommend their brunch - great selection.

I've had the duck at least three times and it's great. Bob the bartender is always fun to talk with. All the selections are good from what my friends who go there say. It's really hard to find parking around there, especially with the street construction going on. But, some how, they keep packing in the diners.

Since my last review in July, I visited again just last week (Dec. 1st). Continue to be impressed! The baguette, tomato and brie sandwich with pesto is fabulous! The baguette (and the food in general) tend more toward the country French (Norman, perhaps) so expect a very crusty yummy loaf!

We decided to have a nice nicoise salad here with some protein on it. Salmon, shrimp or chicken. We opted for one salmon (about 4 ozs.) and one with shrimp (they're a few but bigger ones). The salads are nicely prepared and with cherry like tomatoes, petite potato's, asparagus, olives, an egg and more. A lighter vinaigrette dressing coats it.... More

We'd been trying to find time to make the drive to Wauwatosa and visit La Reve. It took us a couple of years to actually make the time, but it was certainly worth it. What a great experience! First I want to mention something that is very hard to describe: There is an overall "culture" here that is rare in... More

We are at the start of working our way down the Wauwatosa Trip Advisor list with our neighbors (get to try places in our community while catching up with friends!) Le Reve Patisserie is listed as #1 or we may not have ever gone here-- that's the fun of following a list...! We all really enjoyed our meals-- our neighbors... More

Had a great time with our group, but felt like they were "put out" by having to serve our large table. Had a nice meal and a wonderful time catching up with old friends, but it was a bit pretentious for my liking. The pastries were amazing, though!
