When we walked into this bakery it felt like a quaint little escape from the usual. The walls are decorated with French scenes and there's a small chandelier hanging over the counter. This place doesn't have a huge selection but we found plenty of yummy looking possibilities and chose an apple tart to share and an almond/apple croissant to take... More

I tried one of the quiches, key lime pie, and a coffee. Everything was delicious! The owner was super nice and made me feel welcome. I would definitely come back!

This bakery is visited at least several times a month. The pastries are always fresh and displayed nicely in the cases. The raspberries scones which are only available on Thursdays are outstanding. Often times scones can be dry but if you visit on Thursday this is a must item to order. Other pastries are also good to enjoy. As a... More

This bakery has very few gluten free dessert options available among their glorious selection of french pasteries. I have purchased many gf baked goods in other bakeries that were delicious and moist. There are many potential customers out there who have Celiac Disease-- and others who simply want to eliminate gluten from their diet.

This is a great little European bakery that shouldn't be missed. The croissants and baguettes are exceptional, freshly baked daily. I look forward to sampling other items on future visits but knowing that you can show up at 7:00 a.m. to get freshly baked goodies is incentive enough to drag yourself out of bed. C'est domage it is closed on... More

Good bakeries are becoming a dying breed so whenever you find one, you feel as though you've struck gold or oil in your backyard. While on vacation in Sarasota, Florida, we had heard about Ooh La La French Bakery. Located at 2705 Mall Drive, off Gulf Gate Drive, in a mecca of small shops to the east of the Gulf... More

Was pleasantly surprised with the apple croissant, was very moist and flavorful, will go back soon to try other pastries. They have a whole lot to choose from! The owner is genuinely friendly, not just an "air" to put on for business

My favorite part of breakfast in Paris a few years ago had to be fresh croissants every morning and fresh baguettes with lunch or dinner. Never been to Paris? No worries...come savor the French flavors without leaving Sarasota! This place is the real deal. Several beautiful, buttery types of filled and regular Croissants and baguette every Thursdat through Sunday. but... More
