We had carry out breakfast sandwiches several times during my recent trip. Their sandwiches on croissants are very good. Their other pastries were good, too!

I am delighted that they re-opened in a larger space because now you can get desserts as well, which are also delicious.

I have been going for years to the old location at 12th and morris in south Philly. The new place only 2 1/2 block away is fantastic. The selection of pastries at a reasonable price can beat. The bread and rolls go perfectly for dinner or lunch. The breakfast sandwichs sell out quickly, so get there in time to enjoy... More

At the time of this review, Artisan Boulanger Patissier is closed, due to their move to Mifflin Street. I can hardly wait until they reopen, because everything they make (that I've tried so far) is outstanding. Their new location looks to be larger & they will have expanded outdoor seating, which is great, but they're no longer right on Passyunk... More

After reading reviews online, I tried this place out on a Sunday morning. Cute little place with a few tables that were filled with people who were having a good time. I tried the almond croissant and a pistacchio and a cheese pastry. All three were wonderful! Buttery, not overly sweet, flakey. My favorite was the almond croissant--crispy on the... More

Wow. Just Wow. We stayed in Philly for two days and both mornings we ate there. We get one delicious chocolate croissant, the best ever pistachio croissant (my favorite) and a baguette (home made) with egg and cheese along with two surprisingly good cups of coffee. Everything was superb and well priced. After reading reviews online we drove to this... More

I fell in love with their pastry , served at Anthonys in the Italian Market, 10 years ago. I tracked Andre down to his shop , and go nowhere else now for Excellent pastry. The owners, Amanda and Andre, make all their customers feel like family. They sell out early many days, so arrive early , around 730am , is... More

I cannot say enough great things about this place. A wonderful Vietnamese family, from the days for french colonization, runs this authentic French pastry shop. There are scores of different pastries, all super fresh, and truly delicious, plus fresh breads, croissants, great coffees etc. etc. Do try the meat pies, the quiches, and their vietnamese hoagies. I give this the... More

I can't tell you how happy I am to live a few blocks from this place. Love, love, love this bakery. Everything you try in this heavenly shop transfers your palate, mind and soul straight to the streets of Paris. From wonderful baguette ($1.75 for long one; $1.50 for smaller) to country loaf ($2) to multigrain baguette ($2.75) - everything... More
