    There is something just perfect about a French Bakery when the temperatures drop outside. So many great things on the menu, but don't leave without trying their salted caramel brownies.

    The lavender lemonade is a must have, and the chocolate and raspberry tart is heaven on a plate. If you're in the mood for a heartier meal, the chicken salad sandwich is tasty.

    One of the best places to hang out at Uptown Charlotte for great coffee and great desserts alike. I would highly recommend the macaroons as well as the croissants plus the French Roast coffee.

    This is where you go in Charlotte if a salted caramel brownie craving hits you at 3 a.m. Open 24 hours a day and full of great ambiance and pastries, you might decide this is your permanent residence.

    The chocolate croissant, salted caramel brownie & palmiers were my usuals. Now I'm really digging both the pistachio & salted caramel macaroons. And the spinach asparagus leek soup is outstanding!!

    One of the most eclectic places to hangout! Love it. Sit out on the front porch at a table, inside on a comfy couch, or choose the more quiet, green hall in the back.

    There are a lot of gluten free options here. The almond cakes are fluffy and delicious. Also, while the salty caramel brownie is what they are known for, I didn't love it.

    PLEASE DO NOT FEED OR MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH THE HIPSTERS. Also, no big arm movements (they startle easily). Please enjoy observing them in this simulation of their natural environment.

    Great place to stop after dinner, or anytime for that matter. I'm a sucker for the chocolate eclairs. Don't let the line scare you, you'll make your way to the counter in no time.

    Sadly, the quality and consistency of both food and staff has waned. After spending over $1000 in the past year, the manager was unwilling to replace one poorly made item. I will never go back again.
