I find this place to be quite amusing in the draw of fancy parents, nannys and un-disciplined children climbing on the glass display case and chairs. Somehow the crowd that comes here thinks this is what fresh, french baked goods taste like....such a shame as this place has such potential but lacks the real ingredients and a sense of European flare. I think Le Petite France in Curridabat, Restaurant Colbert in Varablanca near Poas or Brillocco (italian) in Plaza Itscazú is better priced, fresh and much much tastier and authentic. Plus there is an owner presence, more friendly staff and fresher more authentic product.
Maybe this bakery was once owned by a french chef but that person has since moved on. It's such a shame.
I have been here a handful of times and everytime is lackluster. The pastries are overpriced (to be expected in Escazú), not super fresh nor super tasty. Just sugary. We did enjoy a chocolate cake with chocolate shavings on top once at a birthday party but other than that I have not been super impressed. My question is: where is the french presence? Where is the floor manager? The wait staff is not very passionate nor interested in their job.
The caprese salad is not a caprese salad but a pile of way too many thinly sliced tomatoes (around 30 slices), a few pieces of mozz and a dollop of pesto. Some onions and small, non-meaty, cheap calamata olives are on top for decoration but it's strange because that's not what goes on a caprese salad....it seems like there is no chef making the dishes just some line cooks. such a shame. the place has such potential and could really use a "face-lift" on its logo (a big pink bow ribbon-- cheesy and outdated) in my opinion.
