    Value for money - half a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, a cauliflower and pear cream soup, a macaroon and a small ice tea - all for $10.82!! Food is not bad. Nice, bright place.

    Lining up to get food can be a little confusing especially when it's busy. There are signs in French, just not obvious when you first walk in. Good pastries, I would come back. Has free wifi too.

    The macaron's weren't impressive, the caramel fleur de sel macaron was decent though. the baguettes were good and the breakfast croissant with hollaindaise sauce was delicious! Coffee was good too

    Remarkable French pastries. Paillard had the best croissant I ever had and the bacon and cheese bake was amazing. Great friendly staff too.

    Excellent choices for breakfast, lunch or brunch at very affordable prices. Try the soup and sandwich in the winter or the salad in the summer.

    Pastries are amazing. Employees are very helpful and kind. Coffee is a little on the strong side but tasted good. Great place for breakfast.

    Fougasse tomate and pesto is awesome. Bread in the center is doughy-soft, fresh, and tasty.

    Vegetarian sandwich on paillard's bread is extra satisfying. Nab croissants on the way out, but skip the cookies.

    Fantastic for a quick meal any time of the day. Eat in or take out! You can't go wrong with a coffe + pastry in the morning, or soup of the day & a sandwich later on! Great prices!

    Great croissants (even a day old after I flew with them back to Toronto). Decent macarons but not comparable to Point G in Montreal. The raspberry was good!

    Love their pastries, the creme brulee is my favorite but the old man & young lady that work the bread & dessert counter are pieces of shit. They talk crap about customers that don't understand French.

    Tip: if you are an anglophone, learn the correct way to order quad espressos before coming here, if this is your drink.

    Fantastic "secret" place to eat, probably gets overlooked by many tourists. Much better food than the chains you will find close by (McDonalds etc) and much better pricing.

    9:30 on a Monday morning and no plain croissants in the bakery area, just at the sandwich counter. But they won't sell you one from the sandwich counter until 10:30. Kinda weird.
