“Not so great but okay”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

You will get decent bakery choices here but doesn't taste really authentic because tastes more sweet than they should be. If you prefer more sweet than authentic then go for it.

“Delicious Pastries”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

After eat at the Zachary's Pizza we walked down the block to have some dessert, we ordered the best yummy fruit tart, lemon shortbread and chocolate cheesecake - fall in love for all these pastries as they are not too sweet compare to others! Besides the pastries, we also like to order the sandwich to go, pricey but worth it for such a quality food!

“Pricey But Delicious”
Reviewed 18 August 2012

We bought a pistachio and chocolate cake which was fabulous even though we were a bit thrown by the $35.00 price. If you're looking for a desert for guests or to bring when you are guests (as we were), you'll be pleased with your choice. A $3.75 loaf of fresh baked light rye also delicious.

“Real French bakery”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Very good croissants, brioche, and baguettes. Wonderful fruit tarts. I ordered a plum tart which looked picture perfect and just as it would if I had bought it in France. It also tasted the way that it should.
