This is a very authentic little French market and café. The market is filled with many French items. Lots of great French cheeses. Excellent French wine choices. You can eat inside and out. Outside on the patio beautiful setting on a quiet Little street with...More

We always have lunch and purchase cheese at Nicole's when we are in Pasadena. The baked Brie and the ham and cheese sandwiches are favorites. Absolutely the best selection of French cheeses in the LA area.

Although they have a cafe, french foods, deli items and more I still love Nicole's cheese! They have a small but good French wine selection also.

Great breakfast and lunch menus. Try the cheese or sliced meat plates and a glass of wine or refreshing sangria. Also the elegant and delicious house-baked desserts -- eat in or take home. Open late Thursdays so you can enjoy a glass of wine or...More

It's a bit pricey to be honest. The sandwiches and lunch fare are adequate. The croissants and desserts are really outstanding. The coffee is pretty good. They could make their espresso stronger and more flavorful.

A friend took me here for a birthday lunch. What a treat! I was here once several years ago. I am going to have to remember Nicole's when I am in town again. The half sandwich (it looked like a whole to me) and soup...More

I am constantly stunned that Nicole's continues to be in South Pasadena. This small but very well-stocked market has an absolutely fantastic selection of great cheeses, fresh baguettes and croissants (although I must admit that I am addicted to their frozen chocolate croissants - nothing...More
