The most wonderful macarons, delightful pastries, delicious crepes and fine coffee selections. You get a taste of all the treats you'd find in Paris without leaving the US. It has charm galore and very friendly service.

I live nearby, and I already gave up on ever getting here early enough to get a rustic cinnamon bun. So I don't mind telling you about it. Their cakes are fantastic, they do an excellent marzipan, their tarts are tops, and even the coffee is really good here. Seating is limited (so is parking) but I've never had anything... More

Flower Flour is a neighborhood bakery tucked away in the Willow Glen area of San Jose. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed and provides a great place to enjoy good conversation over coffee or tea , with a delightful choice of freshly baked desserts. There are also options for sandwiches, quiche etc. The desserts are my favorite and are so... More

.....but parking is hard to find!! There are a few spaces behind but otherwise you must park in the neighborhood which has skinny streets so beware of oncoming traffic- take turns when there are opened spots to pass! We early got clipped by someone in a hurry! Cafe is so cute, great ambiance with lovely floral arrangements throughout including flowers... More

Chose Flower Flour for Mother's Day. Have been there before, which was a better experience. Had Spinach Pie, very rich served with one tablespoon of potato salad, large chunk of potato with a lot of dressing. Think the pie would have been better served with a green salad, since the pie is so rich. May try again for coffee and... More

Reminds me of cafes my wife and I went to on a recent trip to Paris. Except that they also sell flowers, which is interesting. We had the breakfast crepe and roasted veggie crepe, fluffy and sweet with hearty savory filling. I probably could have finished two by myself. Nice decor including a mural on one side. Seating area is... More

After having lived in France, our love for crepes has never gone away. So we stop here on occasion for breakfast. While we have never expected French-level high quality, this latest visit suffered severely. We were served dry and pretty tasteless versions of their Breakfast Crepe. When some of the potatoes in the crepe are grey, you know it's far... More

This place is just amazing! Friendly, super fast service and the food is delicious! The crepes are perfectly cooked - I ordered the breakfast crepe with bacon and i would highly recommend this crepe. We also ordered the veggie crepe with a special jam and this was absolutely delicious as well. The place is also very quaint and is full... More

We went to this place for breakfast and I expected a dissent crepes at least. It was big disappointment. Crepes looked like half baked and tasted really heavy. Latte was one of the worst I ever had. Deserts and pastries looked nice, the seating area is also pleasant, but I would never come back to that place again.
