This is a new Boulangerie/Cafe in Westcliff area. Don't bother!! It is a total disappointment. The displays look yummy but are almost too perfect looking. Tried both the St.Maxim and the almond croissant and the taste was the same, except the croissant a bit more moist. However, the only almond I experience was those sliced on top. Both weere absolutley flavorless and not a bit. appealing to the taste buds. Spoke to several other patrons, having salads and sandwiches and,they too, said a lot to be desired. Too bad, since location is great and the couple who opened it suposedly had spent a lot of time researching in France, and if I recall, they hired a French chef.
Doubt if they make it since they are directly across street from Haute Cakes, where we had wonderdful Breakfast sandwiches today and a Sprinkles is also in the are along with Plums and numerous really good food businesses.
