Pastries are good, although do they use 100% portions of butter in their recipes, I’m not sure? Waiting staff is typically French and can be hit and miss sometimes. Even Paris has better service nowadays. GooglePlace - February 2018

If you’re stopping in to get something and leave, it’s great. They are so overloaded and understaffed that eating in is not the best experience. The first few times I tried not to make a big deal. Then the next two times, they literally forgot entrees and then we had to wait an extra half an hour with no food. The last time we sat for 20 minutes at a table - after making sure someone saw us as we went to the table - and no one came at all. We just left, with no intention of coming back. I tried! Their croissants talked me into trying too long:) GooglePlace - February 2018

As you can probably gather from the other reviews the service here is terrible. Patrick, please do something about it, talk with your employees. I live a couple blocks down and for the past 3 months have come here 2-3 times/wk in the morning thinking that it'll just take time for them to get to know me and have that friendly neighborhood vibe. I get the exact same thing, a chocolate croissant warmed up, every time, tip well, and they never mention seeing me around or remember my order. They give me this look when I ask for it warmed up like they can't understand that someone would want a warm pastry and are annoyed they have to walk 5 steps to put it in the oven. Maybe that's too much to expect, but based on the other reviews, seems like they're just purposely rude. Also the tables are often dirty with a majority still having the dishes from previous customers so you have to move them to another table or clean it up yourself. The one guy who's there is alright and I'm thinking I'll only go in when he's there, but really, in line with the dumb Uber fiasco, I should just stop patronizing places with a**holes, even if I like their chocolate croissant to emphasize service is important. Very sad the panotiq down the street closed. GooglePlace - February 2018

Dogs allowed inside which is why they are receiving so many stars on this review. Baked goods are decent, but not the type the you get cravings for and go out of your way to pick up. They have an awesome Instagram feed and when you visit the shop it can be underwhelming. The space is small with indoor & outdoor seating. They run out of most baked goods by mid day and options can be slim picking if stopping by in the afternoons/evenings. They're shameless to still charge full price ($3) on wonky looking macaroons. It's a go-to for friends with pets because they're so accommodating and the sidewalk seating provides for nice people watching on a sunny day. GooglePlace - February 2018

I really like the food here but the service has really gone downhill in the last year. It seems like most of the staff is new and just don’t seem to hustle except for one guy. When we arrived for a late lunch on Saturday there were several tables open, unbussed and there was a sign-in sheet at the door with 5+ parties on the list. Looks like everyone else abandoned hope but we asked one of the waiters if we could seat ourselves and he said “of course.” Wonder if the bus boy was just off today and whether there was a host at all. Definitely a shame because the food is quite good. We had to flag down the staff for menus and ended up getting our own waters despite asking for them. GooglePlace - January 2018
