This is the best place for pastries in Hattiesburg. You will have to drive to New Orleans to find anything like this. You can see things being made by hand in the back. I usually order a chocolate croissant or almond croissant. I've eaten many examples of both and these are the best I've had which includes New Orleans and... More

I stumbled across this place and was so pleased I did. As I enjoyed a spinach, onion, swiss and feta omelette, croissant and coffee I watched a seemingly endless stream of locals seeking one of the few tables or carrying out. Reasonably priced with old school service I would recommend a visit.

I swear this is the best cake anyone, including myself, has eaten. The staff has always been kind, courteous, and on time. This was my second time ordering this type of cake myself and I have the same good things to say about it because everyone loved it! I also had some breakfast pastries a few months ago that were...

C'eat la Vie was a nice find right by my hotel in Hattiesburg. I'd much rather give my business to local people who put their hearts into their work rather than support the politics of giant firms (e.g. Starbucks, etc.). The cafe au lait and enormous croissant I enjoyed were superb and the staff cheerful and efficient. CLV has a... More

C'est La Vie is wonderful. I love going there for breakfast, brunch, or just to grab a coffee. They have a lot of options, and everything is made fresh in the back. Go multiple times, and try everything you can because it is worth it.

We love the croissants. It's a small place with some room for enjoying the croissants on-site, WARNING get there early or reserve what you enjoy, this place is no secret.

One of the nicest place around Hattiesburg. Food is great and staff is fabulous. We stop often and sit and enjoy the delightful pastries and load up several different items to take home. Sad to say usually we sample and end up devouring them before we get home.

Picked up a very wonderful Valentine's Cake. It's "Black Forest" and totally wonderful. Presentation is SUPERB. The cake itself is so soft, creamy moist and taste is almost out of this world. WOW...... I've been here several times before and if I've not said so......Thanks for this treat.

By the name, it is a French bakery. They are more of a coffee, breakfast, pastry shop and do serve lunch. I would not call them a full-service bakery, but the items they fix are DELICIOUS. I went by yesterday to get a King Cake for Mardi Gras. They are baked to order. Most places make a wide variety of... More
