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.

Absolutely love this place!! The pumpernickel and coffee cake are amazing! Nice and friendly every time, always willing to share knowledge and talk about the ingredients too.

I love French bakeries, and have been here three times this month already. The pastries are fresh and delicious. The owner is friendly and always greets me with a genuine “Bonjour” when I walk in. *chefs kiss*

I visited this morning. Got a chocolate and regular croissant, peasant bread and a chocolate chip cookie. It's fun stepping into the bakery and soaking in the decor. I like that you can see the owner baking and preparing pastries. Seemed like a lovely place and I would love to sit there next time. The location is a bit unfortunate. Because it is in a strip mall, you don't expect to see such an artsy bakery, so it's easy to overlook. As for the baked goods: What I have tried has been good and priced alright compared to similar bakeries around. For me, there is a little too much sugar in some of the items but that could just be my personal taste buds. The quality is good -- always fresh. Overall, I think the owner puts in a lot of effort to ensure the baked items taste the best they can and hasn't hiked prices to some ridiculous amount like some artisan bakeries do. For that reason, despite finding some things a little too sweet for me, it deserves a full five stars and I will be supporting this business whenever I can!

I never leaves reviews but WOW - beyond exceeded my expectations. The dark chocolate mousse pie and creme brûlée was delicious and not overly sweet. The baker was so pleasant and the space very quaint. It’s all you need. This will be my new go to for perfectly baked treats. Can’t wait to try the fresh baked breads!

Always greeted with a smile & welcomed in. Excellent service, yummy cinnamon buns, strawberries & cream pastry puffs, and best crème brûlée I’ve ever had.

Wow. Wish we had found this sooner. We have kids and they don't open until 9. Or I should say 'he' doesn't open until 9. The baker opened up and served us warm wonderful baked goods. Excellent late breakfast for our family. If only he opened up at 7:30...
