Outstanding croissants! My favorite is ham and cheese, but if you want something sweet...the chocolate almond croissant is also amazing. The coffee was fresh, the restaurant was clean, and the customer-service was friendly and attentive. The baked goods are so good. Love, love the almond rum cake is so good!

My son and I love to stop here for dessert. They have a big selection, and everything we have ever tried has been wonderful. My favorite would be the sablé cookies. What I love the most is that the desserts are not overly sweet.

We had eaten breakfast in the area,and decided to grab 2 sandwiches to eat on the beach, later in the day. I highly recommend doing this; they were large, fresh and delicious sandwiches; the bread was wonderful on the sandwich we chose on French bread , too. We especially enjoyed the chicken salad sandwich on a croissant. I did buy... More

Bon Appetit has authentic French and European bakery confections and also serves light lunches. We've tried literally every bakery item at some point and never been disappointed. The Pain au Chocolate (chocolate croissants) are incredible, as is the flourless chocolate cake. GO!

Rum almond was good but dry. Chocolate cake very very dry & disappointing. They had one hour until closing. Plenty of Madeleine's but very tiny. Overall disappointing.

Used Bon Appetit for breakfast catering for 6 days over two separate weeks. The pastries and both sweet and savory croissants were a hit! They were packaged well for transport and were fresh and delicious, and our guests really enjoyed them.
