I love local. Their baked goods are delicious. Their little quiche and fruit pies are too good to not want more. They have quiches and loaves of bread they sell. Their little bakery has seats that were old sewing desks. It's very quaint and homey. Their staff is very helpful and kind.

My mom and daughter introduced me to this cute bakery shop. Antique sewing machines and eclectic chairs for seating. The employees were awesome, and the food AMAZING. I had the Blueberry mini tart and also bought macaroons and Jalapeno cheddar foccacia. Mom and daughter had pan au chocolat(chocolate croissant).

I am from the New York-New Jersey area, and I can tell you that this is a high quality bakery!! You can tell by the way the croissant flakes off, its the highest quality and freshest ingredients possible. All of the pastries that I had were very, very good, my wife had a ham and cheese and pesto sandwich on a croissant, she said it was extremely good because the ingredients were high quality and very fresh. That’s what made it taste so delicious. Though the owner (a French baker) retired, the staff continued his high quality and continues to uses his French recipes. A very friendly staff made the whole experience a delight!! We will definitely be back again. Though, I do wish that they put more chocolate in the chocolate croissants. I’m a bit of a chocoholic!!

The almond croissants are amazing! Highly recommend this place for a quick morning breakfast! Only downside is that they do not have espresso- I think if they added that it would be the best coffee shop/bakery in all of Durham!

Best chocolate croissants I’ve had outside of my trip to France some years ago. In fact, all the desserts we have tried have been nothing short of excellent. Best bakery I have been to in years and I’ve been to quite a few. Most American bakeries just push sugar. This bakery actually offers flavor.

The puckish Benjamin turns out wonderful pastries, breads, and confections. Yep, this is the real deal and it's a reason I have been a regular in this place for a long time. On the savory side, the ham and cheese croissant makes a great lunch.

I've been riding around looking for this bakery for a while now. Finally, I found the "French Corner Bakery" and was not disappointed. If anyone has ever lived in Europe, then you understand fresh bread, pastries just all around goodness and fresh sandwiches. I almost lost my mind buying one of almost everything there. The prices are very reasonable for that European taste. Anyway my kids loved everything I brought home 🏘️. I love this place and you can eat inside too!

Very cute lil French bakery hidden in an unlikely spot! The eclairs are huge and delicious. Not sure if they have coffee I didn’t see any posted but I’m sure if they do that would be great as well.
