Was more impressed with the coffee than some of the bakery items, but those we have were still very good. Service was average.

Good Coffee-- better than Starbucks, charming place, and pastries. Did I mention pastries? Come early if you want to try the cream cheese and fruit croissants. Some say the marionberry is the way to go. I love it, but I may prefer the plum. Raspberry is another special favorite... oooh, or the almond, or chocolate almond. I often get two,... More

Definitely not authentic French pastries! The name of the bakery is misleading. Croissant was not flaky or buttery. Dried out. Overpriced. Weak coffee.

While attending a conference at the next door hotel, we visited this coffee / bakery quite often. The coffee and baked goods were very good, and we found ourselves returning on each break period over three days.

It is a small place, more cafe than bakery. They have great ham & cheese scrambles, and the coffee is wonderful!

This place has a great selection of simple breakfasts... great for eating in or taking out. Everything is made fresh. The pastries are also delicious!

This was my first time at the Franch Bakery, and what a pleasant surprise. It is a small little cafe with great drinks and food. All 3 of us had mochas which were delicious with cute foam art. We had 2 different pastries and both were so good, they were flakey and buttery! The food and coffe were well priced.... More

For a gluten free eater this is not the place for you unless you want dyed green, yellow or pink cookies. I had a salad and it was very poorly done. Lots of lettuce so you think you are getting a big meal but that was about it, no flavor, very little salad dressing and not much else. Very slow... More
