Jackie is a master at her craft. I am so happy to have her European bakery here. From rock buns/scones to cakes to croissants to pastries to quiche, and to cookies on holidays, Jackie's creations are wonderfully delicious. Not only are they beautiful to behold, but excellent, and by far the best , to the taste buds. Jackie has a... More

I've been here several times, but finally took my 10 year old niece! She was so impressed and LOVED THE DESSERTS! Kids are brutal and honest with their comments, but she loved her piece of chocolate mousse cake! She was blown away, and even said that she needed to bring her mom! She finally knows why I call this my... More

What explanation could there possibly be that a delightfully quaint, french cafe - which offers some of the best pastries I (or you) have ever tasted - is located in sleepy little Hilo town? As if I didn't already love Hilo enough. Sometimes we're better off with no explanation save the randomness of life: better to simply enjoy than question.... More

It really is that good. It's not trying to do too much selection or volume, but what we found there (peach croissant) was excellent. The almond croissant looked tasty, but we elected for the peach. It was flakey and not too sweet-- just right.

The Soprano Cake is exceptional. Many other choices for top grade deserts and eats. I understand this place is almost a hobby with the owner but wish they were open more traditionally. You need to buy your stuff early cause she makes small batches. Call ahead to not be disappointed.

Chocolate Croissant left me wanting more. Regular Croissant likewise. I would be a regular. Worth a trip, I enjoyed everything I purchased and had the France dessert experience in Hilo.

Oh my word, I will never be able to eat a grocery store croissant again! The Belgian Chocolate Croissant was delightful, but the Frangipane Croissant was pure heaven in my mouth! I'm sure the raspberry lattice bar and Citrus Serenade cheesecake are supremely excellent, since they are also gone into my belly, but if you don't have room for FOUR... More

We return every time we're in Hilo. The macaroons are my ultimate favorite....given a slight twist on the recipe filling with truffle, a change over traditional Parisienne style, and totally an advantageous one. This is a small store, one block over from the market....and worth the stop after visiting the famous Hilo market, as there is nothing like this at... More

After you have tried her pastry it is hard to go back to mass produced sweets. I have purchased whole cakes for special events. None of your guests will be disappointed.

We were recommended this place by a local and also saw good reviews online. The two ladies working were extremely kind and provided excellent service. I tried the salmon quiche and my sister ordered the Frangipane croissant. Both were so yummy and hit the spot. We also both ordered iced coffees, which were also wonderful. No espresso machine, but they... More
