If you happen to stop by Gourmandise for breakfast you must try their house-made yogurt topped with berries, jam, and sugar-glazed toasted almonds. It is simply divine and the best yogurt I have ever tasted. Their Cinnamon Bread topped with Amaretto whipped cream and raspberry puree is also fabulous. Breakfast is Gourmandise' secret.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I found the service to be excellent and friendly. It is busy at lunch time and the cafe is almost always full, but even then my coffee cup is almost always kept full. Off the busy hours you get plenty of attention. The place is clean the food excellent and the pastries outstanding.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

We are sorry that you had that experience, it's hard to completely control an outdoor patio in the heart of the city. Come inside, we've got a wonderfully clean restaurant.
I love their european cakes, i have few favorites, i always buy more than I can eat, but whenever you come there to pick up or to spend some tiome with friends - the service is not good. I hate to say it, but they need to train their people to be american style corteous, the way we expect from eatery. they are rude there just like in Paris when you are not speaking french with Parisian accent. I am not sure if you ... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
Gourmandise has been my favorite place for late night desserts for years. I wondered in for breakfast the other day and that was great too. It's nice to go to a place where you know everything is made from scratch. It's downtown's little secret. The suburbs can have their franchises and chains. Eating here with friends at such a unique place makes me feel like its here for the locals to enjoy.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I have traveled around the world a few times as a speaker and consultant. What I like about coming home is the Local feel of Gourmandise. Is the service a little slow??? compared to what...Fast food?? Yes! Are you there to get in and get out or enjoy the fact that they take there time to prepare and it shows and taste in the meals. For some the wait may be much. for me.. I am thankful to know I can get a great meal... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
