Le Boulanger Français is definitely the best place in the city for fresh croissants! They also have an array of delicious, fresh pastries (the apple turnovers and palmiers are out of this world so buy more than one) and numerous desserts (think butter, cacao & cream). If you're looking for a quick grab for lunch, their daily sandwiches are fresh, delicious and creative. Don't forget to grab a freshly brewed café and something sweet.

Bon Appétit

I would add that the 9-grain bread is also excellent. Brioches were available and a number of mouth-watering pastries

I met a friend here for coffee and we lingered for almost two hours - multiple cappuccinos and flaky, perfectly buttery croissants were consumed. We sat at the industrial-inspired counter at one end of the bakery never getting tired of the heavenly aroma of fresh baked breads, croissants and desserts. There is a restaurant beyond the bakery but we were there before it opened - which gave us the chance to chat with the friendly staff and relax with our caffeine fixes. If I lived nearby, I would be here every day.

This place is quite an experience. As you walk in, you will be confronted by an overwhelming blast of delicious smells and an overload of drool inducing pastries.

It is a 'working bakery', which means it is usually crowded and the bakers are trying to work while selling their wares, all at the same time. Don't get mad if it takes a while to get what you want or if the staff seems inattentive... it is worth it.

Prices are pretty good and the taste is awesome. Buy a bag of breakfast pastries and score some coffee somewhere, then hunt down a nice bench in the market and watch the place come alive.
