A charming establishment. Outstanding service. The selection of goodies was impressive. I chose their classic almond croissant, the moist almond filling is to die for. Highly recommended.

Really cute spot hidden on Main Street. French inspired, well decorated and good food. Should I ever be in town again, I’ll be back.

Came across this little gem for lunch today, situated on the high street in Plett. We had a delicious sourdough sandwich which was so fresh and good quality. The owner (Janine) came out to ask if everything was ok and was interested in our travels,...I’d been struggling to get a good coffee while in SA and told her, we had a flat white which was perfect, also the Almond croissant was amazing, we are certainly going back tomorrow before we leave, thankyou.More

Great venue, decent food. However the experience was mired by the grumpy, unfriendly old man, who probably owns the establishment. This guy had a problem with my 8 year old daughter helping herself to glass of water from the water jug in front near the...entrance, and reprimanded the waiters (very rudely) for allowing that to "happen". This left us really baffled to say the least. Had it been explained properly that we were perhaps not allowed to help ourself to tje water that would've been a whole different experience. Nonetheless we will not be returning to this place. Plenty of places in plett with better and friendly atmosphere for all.More

Wonderful location in the courtyard. Perfect eggs Benedict, cheese tomato and ham omelette r both on sourdough. Perfect coffee and cappuccino! And all at a reasonable cost. And with our faithful hound at our feet. Highly recommended

For a 'bakery' our breakfast croissants were horrible. I couldn't finish mine it was so crusty and the cheese was bland. The garden setting is pleasant and coffee was good but that's about it. I'll think twice about going back...

The best patisserie and coffee in Plett. Arrive early to avoid disappointment as they sell out of their famous almond croissants. However there is still delicious alternatives. The best generous apple crumble too!

This was our favourite breakfast in Plett hands down. My husband had granola, croissant and eggs and toast. I had two pieces of the the almond citrus cake because it was one of the best cakes I have ever had. It was gluten-free and did...not have frosting. In this lifetime I never thought I would say this. It was sublime! I would love this recipe. It was this good. I have tried 3 recipes since I returned to Canada and none come close. It will be 3 years before we go back. I wish this bakery every success and hope it is there when I go back. The croissants were excellent too. Flakey, and perfectly light tasting :) Excellent cappuccinosMore

This is and absolute must stop in Plett. Best breakfast on the south coast for authentic French flavor. Lovely atmosphere, good menu, attentive staff, delicious food and the bakery is out of this world. Don't miss it.

Today i have been here for breakfast. There is a home made, glutenfree (but with oats) granola with yoghurt and fruit salad. I also ate the cheesecake, which has no base. Because it was so good (absolutely creamy and fudgy) i also took one slice...for take away as well as a slice of the almond citrus cake and the financiers.More
