“Still Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2014

My wife and I have been to Denoel several times in the past and it's one of favorite places for pastries, coffee and maybe a light lunch now and then. They have been there for 47 years and still have the original chef. The quality and flavor of the food is just great as is the service. It's not an easy place to find because it is on one of the small side streets but with a St. Augustine map you shouldn't have any trouble. We look forward to Denoel every time we are near St. Augustine. Try it, you'll like it too.

“Belgian oddity - and the least fake thing in St Augustine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

charming and set firmly in the 1950s, this is a piece of authentic un-modernised Belgium in the more or less faux town of St Augustine as per usual - early get the best pastries and patisserie - great to catch up on cycling and European and Premier Div. football ( soccer) news.

“Best French Pastry in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

I have been coming to Denoel since I was a child and absolutely love the pastries. I have tried to find ones that were better but have not been able to so far. It is a must when I go to St. Augustine.

“One of our favoirite restaurants in St. Augustine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

We have been to this restaurant many times. The best French bread and pastries !! We have had sandwiches with the French bread and the eclairs are a must. I have tried many of the pastries and have never been disappointed. Ryan is the best server we have run into, and he remembers us and what we like to eat whenever we return. It is off the beaten path, but ask for directions if you can't find it - you won't regret it!!
