When my friend and I got to the restaurant and sat ourselves in a corner the waitress was not around.. we found her and said we were needing to order because we had another engagement and on a schedule. After she knew we were there she didn't bring water till 5 minutes after we asked for it the next time she came. She didn't offer the special till we asked what the daily special was and then couldn't understand what she was saying so after a few minutes of asking repeatedly what she meant we decided to order off the menu to avoid continually asking what the special was. We ordered a chicken pastry and salad .. it took almost half an hour to get our food delivered to our table. The sauce was cold and without flavor, some items were missing from the ordered salad that were said to be on it in the menu, the waitress was told and didn't offer a replacement or compensation for incorrect salad/cold food. We paid and left .. unsatisfied.
Inside sources say most deserts/pastries there are brought in and the name changed. This place claims they bake them there but this is not the case! Who knows what else isn't properly given credit....

Pros: The location is great

Cons: The value and service aren't so great

Whenever I come back from France, this is the first place I visit. It's just about the only place that I can get REAL French bread.

The pastries and tarts are delicious. Just remember, the showier pieces are visually appealing, and the plainer pieces are the really tasty ones.

The cakes are to DIE for, but pricey. It's like my mom always says - You get what you pay for.

Pros: Delicious Desert!

Cons: Wouldn't know!

I love French culture and the language, but I have never had french food before, but I still know enough to know what is good. I had Croquie Monsieur and French Onion soup, which was good, though both dishes were so heavy that I would not recommend getting them together, but seperately they were very good. The hostess was very kind and accommodating. Our waitress was helpful, especially with our bread choice.
We sat on the patio outside and it was wonderfully relaxing.

The dessert was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone, even a random stranger such as yourself, it was called 4 flavor cake. It was a coating of white icing, then chocolate cake, then there was praline icing (which had a caramel-esque flavor), then mocha (which was amazing), then vanilla, then chocolate (each icing layer had an accompaning layer of chocolate cake). This dessert was one of the best I have ever tasted and I would recommend this restaurant to ANYONE, and I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Cheap, relaxing outside seating, great service, authentic french, AMAZING desserts

Cons: don't pair two heavy foods together?

Maybe they are using it for the translation "bite". In which case I'd have to fill a little bitten, in the wallet.

I'll give it three stars, over all I think the lunch I had was worth a satisfactory rating.

Service: I wasn't real happy with where they seated me. The place was practically empty and they placed me right at the kitchen door, very annoying. The waiter was very pleasant though and didn't rush me or take too long getting back to me. I did have to wait in a line to pay when finished, I found that annoying as well.

Food: I had a half sandwich and soup. The soup tasted very watery for a cheddar broccoli and the chicken salad was very cold as though it was stored over night in the frig. The bread was good but I kept thinking this must be day old bread to be this hard. Which was strange because this place is more of a bakery than a dining facility. I had to resist the deserts but if they were as fresh and tasty as they looked I'd definitely up the rating.

Value: I paid about 8.5 for a half sandwich and very small bowl of soup with water. I think 6 bucks would have been more reasonable.

Would I go back? Probably, if someone else wanted to.

Bonne Bouchee has a wonderful selection of individual bakery items as well as full pies, cakes and breads. I have purchased their mini fruit tarts to serve to friends at a dinner party and they were a great hit. The prices were a bit high but considering that I did not have to do the work of preparing them and how beautiful they looked, I was happy to pay the cost. The bakery also has a small cafe with a limited menu serving some great salads and sandwiches, making it a perfect place for lunch. The location is convenient from the 270/Olive interchange and easy to get in and out of.

any business folk around Olive and 270 know about this restaurant tucked away in the shopping center by Culpeppers for their pastries and lunch, but dinner is a treat not to miss.

Weve had the pastries and decided to go for a dinner visit. I wasn't sure what to expect with "french" food, but I was pleasantly surprised how many items on the menu (and in the plethora of specials of the night) were familiar to me: fish, steak, quiche, and more... even pb&j for the kids. Wide variety of drinks available with the house special mango iced tea. Jeans and a t-shirt or a shirt and tie... all are welcome and comfortable. Good lighting, very friendly folk, overall pleasant experience.

Oh and this isn't the normal 'pass on the dessert' place... Its what put La Bonne Bouchee on the map. Take it home if you must wait!

Last weekend La Bonne Bouche created a birthday cake for a 90th year celebration, with more than 50 persons from all over the country gathered. Without exception, the cake was given rave reviews for beauty and taste, and inquiries were made as to the bakery from which it came. I'm very grateful to the master artists!
