The best expresso in town, bar none. Homemade desserts that are unreal. His custom ordered cakes are unmatched. The tiramisu cake is tremendous. An authentic French bakery and pastries in Hattiesburg. How is this possible? The owner is from France, of course. It's just too...More

Last few times I've been the selection has been poor and I go early. The stuff they have has still been very good quality. I've given this place very good reviews in the past but if they're going to stay in business surrounded by competitors...More

This is the best place for pastries in Hattiesburg. You will have to drive to New Orleans to find anything like this. You can see things being made by hand in the back. I usually order a chocolate croissant or almond croissant. I've eaten many...More

I stumbled across this place and was so pleased I did. As I enjoyed a spinach, onion, swiss and feta omelette, croissant and coffee I watched a seemingly endless stream of locals seeking one of the few tables or carrying out. Reasonably priced with old...More

C'est La Vie is wonderful. I love going there for breakfast, brunch, or just to grab a coffee. They have a lot of options, and everything is made fresh in the back. Go multiple times, and try everything you can because it is worth it.

We love the croissants. It's a small place with some room for enjoying the croissants on-site, WARNING get there early or reserve what you enjoy, this place is no secret.

One of the nicest place around Hattiesburg. Food is great and staff is fabulous. We stop often and sit and enjoy the delightful pastries and load up several different items to take home. Sad to say usually we sample and end up devouring them before...More

Dear Friends,
After much consideration, I have decided to change retirement into a vacation. I will be closed for the remainder of the year and will return in January for a to-be-determined amount of time.
Thank you all for the outpouring of support. See you in the new year.
