I have found croissants that match the taste and texture of those in France! Don't let the construction outside keep you away from Le French Fix. Oh, and the macarons are fabulous, too.

Although they did not have a huge variety of desserts, the few looked amazingly good. Their homemade ice cream bars are the best. The milk chocolate shell is thick and covered with hazelnuts; a must try.

Fantastic coffee and croissant. Friendly staff, and nice decor. Coming here for my morning cappuccino is one of my favorite parts of the day

We went first thing in the morning and the croissants were exceptional, as was the cappuccini. We sat in front of a lovely window with red flowers and had a leisurely breakfast.

We wanted coffee and pain au chocolat and left with more, tried their canneles. Coffee and pain au chocolat was good, traditional cannele was good and chocolate was a bit too fudgey. All the pastries and macaron looked great.
