“Great Breakfast Location”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

Amazing selection of different pastries and ice cream, not to mention a wonderful tea and coffee place. Nice location, great to grab a quiet, upscale bite. I suggest the namesake cake and coffee. They also are a chocolatier and their chocolates make great gifts for friends!

“Great pastries!”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

The pastries at the Colbert are seriously good - we had almond pain au chocolat warmed up, and it was probably the best I've ever had anywhere. Hot chocolate wasn't bad, but nowhere near hot enough. The cafe itself is nicely laid out, but the one thing that spoilt our visit was that they had the air conditioning on at 8:30am during the Malagasy winter, when it's pretty chilly out first thing. Would have been more pleasant has we not sat there shivering! There's a salon du thé upstairs but sadly it allows smokers, so not an option for non-smokers like us! Overall, good food but turn the air-con off!

This is well worth a visit in itself! Plenty of nicely presented pastry and good coffee/tea selection.

“A little bit of Paris in Madagascar”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

The ambience, building and display as you walk in - you could be fooled in thinking you were in a French patisserie in Paris. The food does not disappoint - everything I sampled was delicious and compared to European prices, cheap. Definitely work a visit if you are in the area and fancy a little treat.
