Friend and I ate here twice! Coffee, tea & pastries were delicious! Apricot croissant and almond croissant were scrumptious.....your taste buds will thank you!! We also tried their hot dog-- best ones we ever had. It came on a baguette with Dijon and melted cheese!

Came here out of town and was very hungry. As I walked in, I instantly knew something was a bit odd... The host used some kind of accent that seemed awfully fake (definitely wasn't French because I've been to France), the bartender looked like she...More

After a complicated, busy and tired working day, the best thing to do: Happy Hours at Bistro Barberet; I had their wonderful oysters with a perfect glass of white wine. Nothing can be better.

Lunch visit. My crab cake was way too well done, more of a blackened version. I regret not sending it back to the kitchen. The salmon with mixed greens (one of my family ordered) was the best I’ve had anywhere in central Pa. Others had...More

We stopped here and ate at the small bar table area between the front section with the desserts and the back bar/lounge area. Desserts were amazing! I should have gotten two. Worth seeking out when downtown.

The pastries and desserts at the bakery are just as good as you would find in Paris. Great place for an afternoon coffee and a pastry. The restaurant is also very good and is a great addition to the Lancaster restaurant scene.
