    Their filled croissants are standouts, filled with passionfruit or ham and cheese; the raspberry muffin is like a pound cake. Classics like a Gateau Breton and a St. Honoré are also done perfectly. Read more

    If you need a dessert for a dinner party or special occasion, the chocolate mousse cake is a sure thing! Had rave reviews from my guests about this cake. Excellent tarts and cappuccino too.

    When every bakery in the city told me 48hrs for a Napoleon cake, they had it ready for the very next morning! First class service! And worth the trip from lower Manhattan to Jackson Heights!

    Great place in a strip mall next to Waldbaums. Pastries are light & flakey & not too sweet. Very delicious. Apple tart & almond cream tart are excellent. I'll be back to try everything else.

    The peach tart is to die for. Not too sweet, just the perfect balance. Everything else is light & flakey. Nothing feels oily but we know there's butter in these treats. Almond croissants are yummy.

    Omg- amazing little French cafe makes me feel like I'm in Paris- excellent sandwiches, croissants, croque monsieurs and more. If you want an authentic French pastry experience, come here.

    All the pastries that I've tried so far is great. Awesome almond croissants. Nice people. But sometimes the line is enormous. But that says something great about this place. ☺

    Their ham & cheese croissant is the best I've ever had. Hands down. Also, their peach tart was buttery and scrumptious! #FoursquareFind

    I always drop by here on my way to the airport; the location is not really accessible to me, but they make the best french-style pastries in all New York, I can say.

    Omg.. Everything they have is yummy! Love their cheese Danishes, bread puddings, tiramisu, etc. It's located in a strip mall next to Walbaums.

    The Gateau Breton. Cheese Danish, the baguette bread. And more, all excellent! So happy to have this patisserie in our neighborhood!

    I bought carrot cake last time I visited my parents and my Dad said it was the best he'd ever had. The pastries and danish are delicious.

    The best Napoleon (mille-feuille) cake we've ever had, must also try their almond croissants! All the desserts here are delish.

    Nearly everything here is a winner. My two favorites are the Croque Monsieur and the Coco Fraise cake-- both to die for.

    My favorite has to be the bread pudding and the cheese danish. And from the cakes the chocolate cake is all I get!

    An espresso in a paper cup and a very simple croque-monsieur for a quick lunch and you will be in heaven.

    Croissants are great, but the pastries are to die for - Mille Feuille, St. Honore, Espresso 33.

    Go to Cannelle and get a cheese danish and a cappuccino. Skip the brewed coffee, it's not very good but the cappuccino is phenomenal. All the cakes & sweets are great too.

    Love the food, but their coffee cups are the worst. Don't get burned or get coffee spill on your clothes.

    An odd location for this place makes it a hidden gem... the "Creole" chocolate mousse cake was pretty phenomenal.

    The plain croissant, a standard for a French bakery, was too oily all over; crust lacked the flakiness necessary to make it feel like the light bread it should be.

    So many people come here, but there aren't enough staff to cope. Expect very long waits in the morning... But the wait is worth it sometimes!
