First and foremost this is a bakery of superb quality. However it has four tables for dining in, serving the day's special offerings such as a variety of quiches - mouth watering good! The bakery products are so good as to entice customers to come back even when are not necessarily shpping for baked goods. The place is authentic French and has the feel of an old Parisian bistro. You cannot get your morning off to a better start than to have Therese prepare a croissant or slice of baguette and cheese with your coffee. She will prepare a special lunch for you ahead of time with a day's notice. We had the best Croque Monsieur this side of Paris on just such an occasion. Bon!!

This is a much needed bakery in the area, and the owner is nothing short of lovely and studied under some terrific french pastry chefs. The store is very well stocked with an array of wonderful things, some better than others. The cake slices (genoise) whether chocolate or yellow are not dense enough, the filled croissants are a delight and some of the other specialty pastrys and their respective fillings are very good. I have not tried the bread as yet. I think the prices, in comparison to C'est la Vie (which is unbeleivablely fabulous), are high. I will continue to support this bakery as it can only get better.

Croissants, baguettes, quiche and pastries but Ooh La La what pastries! Where to start? The custard fruit tartlets made with a firm shell then filled with a wonderful fresh custard topped by fruit--raspberries, blueberries, kiwi--so fresh it tastes as if it were picked that morning. Quiche with a flaky crust and so mouth watering that you are forced to eat it slowly and savor every mouthful. And the croissants are so light and buttery I am surprised they aren't floating in the display case. And when you see the array of choices in the display case you won't know which item to point a first. The owner is a transplant from France and Sarasota must be favored to have gained her talents. Be warned, once you enter Ohh La La you will return and return and return. I have not tasted bakery items this fresh outside of France. This may be the first review but watch how fast they pour in once visitors become daily clients. I know after my first visit I was back the next day. Just visit their website for some motivation: http://www.gulfgate.biz/MallDrive/OohLaLaFrenchBakery.aspx
