Authentic French sweets. Quaint little store with many choices of freshly baked treats. The only negative is that it's seems very pricy for the quantity that you walk out the door with. I suppose you get what you pay for though. Of course these are...More

The (OK, "Le") Petit Prince is not a restaurant. It is a fabulous French bakery. The truly French proprietors get up in the middle of the night to start baking. Every day they have fabulous fresh croissants, baguettes, rolls, pastries, cookies, eclairs, chocolate creations, etc.,...More
