    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

    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.

    Regular coffee is fine here. For a latte, go to Blue Bottle or Venetia. Get a pain aux raisins and a sausage-filled pastry, they are undeniably good.

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

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

    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.

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

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

    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 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
  • Rafał L.
    The pastries are good, on a sweet side though. Be aware that creme brulee is frozen and it's served that way

    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.

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

    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.

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