Loved this gem! Hidden behind the plaza worth finding. Everyone had unique French toasts while I had an omelet. Generous portions! Look at my cappuccino, it was enormous!

When you order a chicken crepe for lunch and it cost $10.99 you would expect to get something more on your large plate than one, yes one small crepe and nothing else. What a waste of money............

Wow, what a great place to visit for fresh baked French pastry and breakfast. We had to return for a second time during our brief visit to Hilton Head island. Great for families too as their is a playground for kids to play while you look over Shelter Cove sipping your creamy latte. Lots of parking available and friendly service!... More

We had a very good lunch at this lovely restaurant in Shelter Cove. The restaurant tries to have a French motif but it kind of falls short. Service was attentive and the food was good and the restaurant was very clean.

Upgraded and expanded location from the north end of the island , but the "family" feeling is gone. The days of everything being hand made and served by wonderful family members have been relaxed with an "average" staff. Homemade recipes have been replaced with mixes ( ex. Chai Latte), Blueberry Muffin and Scones are now dry and sometimes stale. Prices... More

Quaint French bakery with delicious food. Eat inside or out. The pastries are wonderful, the French onion soup was delicious and the café latte was very good. The servers were very friendly and professional and the bakery was very clean and inviting. Hard to pass up these delicious pastries while staying at Hilton Head!

Good coffee, great farmers omelet. Pastries, cakes,quiche with cheddar and mushrooms. Very nummy. Good bread and rolls. Very good service. Soups are good as well. Sandwiches, pancakes and French Toast are some other options. A nice way to start your day or enjoy lunch. Plenty of parking.

This gem of a breakfast place is a European treasure. We were not looking for a breakfast diner or a resort breakfast but something different like a bakery cafe that was local and not Panera. Found them by searching bakery on Yelp and looking at their menu, they had me at crepes and French onion soup, plus we search out... More
