Reviewed 25 October 2013

The taste factory has lot's of deserts, bread and lunch items that will satisfy the craving. We had pastries that were worth every calorie and that is sometimes hard to say! The texture was perfection and the prices reasonable. The young person behind the counter was friendly and very helpful. Try not to return I dare you!!!!

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

The French Pastries/desserts were the best I have ever had. Breakfasts and lunches were also great--we went 3 times- and very reasonably priced. This is a new establishment. Will definitely go back

We had dessert here one day and the selection was amazing. I even took pictures of the beautiful displays of their offerings. The prices reflect the quality, but we didn't mind paying more for great food.

“Yummy breakfast/lunch”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

When standing in front of all the goodies, it is so hard to decide what to have.
The french bread and the croissants are amazing. The lunch sandwiches are great for picnics to the beach, take a cooler to keep them fresh. Don't forget to have some freshly squeezed O-juice.

“Good, french style”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

It was very modern décor and great looking pastries. I think I'm just not quite used to the French baking, with lots of butter and eggs (I don't like eggs) but if you do, you will love this place.

Everything looked good and the fresh squeezed Orange juice was so refreshing on a very hot, humid morning, a very unique OJ presser too. Oh just an fyi I was overcharged, I think it was a mistake I hope but I let it slide, since it was my first day. Just check your receipt, ask prices up front, make sure because they give prices in NAf. Overall a good place to just relax enjoy a simple breakfast.
