I am always charmed by a friendly staff. They make the experience 100% better. This bakery has pastries that are hard to resist, delicious soup and fairly strong coffee. The white, marble interior makes the environment lighter and luxurious.
Buy a small lentil soup and coffee, then go sit by the window and watch the world go by. The location is a great one for people watching and isn’t too far from Union Station. It gets busy near the evenings, as it is connected to its own restaurant area, and people want their sweets fix on the way home. This French bakery chain is a fun place to check out if you’re in the area.
