First time visit to this storefront cafe in Rice Village and we found great food and a friendly, communal atmosphere. Soup, salads, quiches and sandwiches were all homemade and very tasty. The tight quarters lead to the wonderful community atmosphere. Save room for the pastries and desserts!

We visited for a quick and light dinner after a day at MD Anderson which is only 1.5 miles away. The chicken salad on baguette was large and very delicious. Croque Monsouir was also good along with cafe mocha. The bread on the sandwiches is delicious, pretty sure it's made right here. They have big glasses you can use for... More

Chicken salad on a baguette can't be beat! We didn't try quiche, pasteties or coffee ... but all looked delicious! Breakfast clientelle: business types and mom's with strollers. Lovely neighborhood find!

Good French type breads and light dining while you read the New York Times... Great orange juice! For lunch they offer a good deal of Quiche, drink and soup or salad. Love their Salmon Quiche and the walnut cookies!

I've often visited with my mom for a relaxing brunch. Every time we go, we always order the tomato onion quiche and try out a different pastry. This place is perfect for a cup of coffee and peaceful atmosphere.

The quiche is fantastic and so are all the homemade pastries. I always pop in when I am hungry for bread based products. Their sandwiches are good but I'd rather experience their sweeter treat and breads. However, the quiche is a must!

Such a gem - a happy place with families enjoying croissants and miche rolls, French style. You can get a freshly boiled egg, a seven grain roll with butter and jam and fresh dark coffee to eat while reading a community-owned newspaper for a lot less than $10....very civilized, way better than fast food.....

We usually get their coffee and pastries, but they also have nice sandwiches. From the cakes I like blueberry tart, mango mousse.

Croissant Brioche has been at this location for many years. It is an unpretentious cafe with indoor and outdoor tables. Great for a nice cupe of coffee and fresh bakery goods. The croissants are good, but there are better ones elsewhere in town. The same can be said for the pastries. However, the overall stop is pleasant: you meet friends... More

I sent my better half here because he was in the area and I needed some quality bread. Although I had never been there, it had good reviews online and with a name like that, I expected decent baked goods. Well, not so much. He returned with two petit baguettes, an almond and a chocolate "croissant." The bread was nowhere... More
