    Awesome! Plenty of room to sit, lots of fantastic pastries, sandwiches, coffees and so much more. The staff friendly. Could work on keeping the tables cleared and floors clean though.

    They have great pre-boxed/pre-slices gift items like Castella Cake that make a great quick party gift for palettes that don't enjoy hyper-sweet desserts. (Green Tea Castella is my favorite)

    The pudding is amazing! Call ahead to see if they have it on the shelf! :) my favorite is the plain vanilla, they have other flavors as well...blueberry, strawberry, cappuccino.

    Wide selection of pasties with an Asian twist to many plus quite decent coffee, power and spacious tables = great working and people watching spot in Palo Alto

    They started using Facebook internet here. This means that you need to check in here on facebook in order to use the internet. Not the best strategy to retain tech people here.

    Feels a little sterile, but be sure to pick up a pastry (or several) and a coffee before parking yourself at a table or at their communal tables.

    Ask for a "happy points" card at the register. Staff should get more professional training.. gotta go back for more yummy asian pastries

    Loved the pastry that hadnutella on top, and the peppermint mocha. The free wifi was fast enough for me!

    The red bean and green tea pastries are great here and go well with the Ritual coffee. Great place to work in the mornings.

    Love the variety. Don't love the chaos. Seeing that many people don't understand efficiency, don't be afraid to say excuse me...

    Buy a cake. Any cake. Or just the Choco strawberry. Comes in cute box with serving utensils, candles, and matches. Boom.

    Very fresh international pastries. It's not just French but Asian pastries as well. You have to try the custard in a bottle!

    Great variety. Some items can be expensive per piece but the larger items are good value.

    The salads and sandwiches are surprisingly tasty. Try the cobb salad... crunchy, fresh and solid.

    Best Croissant EVER!! And I lived in Paris;). Flaky, not too sweet and perfectly buttery!

    This place is so overrated. Keep on walking. Latest craze - Cronuts. $3:50 for a greasy disgusting lump of dough. Bleugh.

    This one is way more West than it is East, especially compared to what I'm used to in NYC. Still nice to find a bit of Korea in PA tho

    Donut Croissant aka Cronut was yummy, but a little oily. Croissants good, but filling is lacking.

    Absolutely no sense of order in this joint. Silly Palo Alto moms & their strollers & their poorly behaved kids taking up space near pastries

    Roated garlic turkey sandwich has LOTS of garlic. Cappuccino was strong and on point

    This is actually an Asian chain so they have way more than just traditional French pastries.

    Desserts are yummy, but they need to dim the lights.... Waste of energy and not romantic.

    The pastries they serve in Palo Alto is different from those in Asia.
  • Jeffrey Z.
    Pretty big Paris baguette! Standard fare, though they have cronuts that are pretty good at this one too

    Try to beat little kids... to the line or else they'll cough all over your pastries. Shallow Alto parents don't care.

    Tried the cronut, it was interesting but not so great that it's worth the hype.
