Eggplant quiche was great, everything else okay, coffee is m – Enjoyed the eggplant quiche of the day. Eggplant is tricky to get right, this was soft without being at all mushy, just right. Generous eggplant portion in the quiche. The tomato bisque was good, a cup is a good portion.
The coffee is just okay. Offering a French press option (for two, charge a bit more) would be a lovely choice on the menu.
Ambiance is a bit sterile (black and white) but they moved into a bigger space (the place was packed) and plenty of parking. Nice bathrooms.
Love it !!! – The pastries are a rare combination of beauty and function, delicious to the tongue and the eye. When I bring them to friends parties they are always a hit.
The bread is authentic and comparable to fresh baguette and croissant I have had in Paris.
The service is an exact balance of taking care of you and letting you savor the food and conversation.
Excellent price for value, Quality is consistent and first rate.
I have been to Douceur in Roswell which is just as good but prefer the intimacy of the original Marietta one (although I did meet my lover for the first time at the one in Roswell).
Wish they were open late so we could drink coffee and eat pastries after other events.
A dream come true – This place is a dream come true. I personally travel from Raleigh, NC just to go to Douceur de France.
My response to Shocked Customer:
Given your ignorant comment about WWII and French Restaurants I have to agree completely with the "French lady" rolling her eyes. Please do not go into a French establishment again. Go eat sandwiches from some grease pit in Atlanta. If you have had any insight on history besides the normal American crap that was taught to you in school, you would have known that the French warned us about going into Vietnam, they were fighting on our side while the British were burning the White House. Go read a book.
Worst Customer Service!!!!! – Not only will I never go back to Douceur De France, but after receiving such rude service, I'll probably never go to a French restaurant again.
I visited Douceur De France and ordered a sandwich to go. When attempting to pay for the $8.00 sandwich with my credit card, the French lady at the register rudely informed me there was a $10.00 minimum to pay with a credit card.
I then offered a debit card. This French lady rolled her eyes, looked at me as if I were a disgrace to the human population and then pointed to the sign that said '$10.00 minimum credit charge'. (The sign was very small).
All I was trying to do was buy a sandwich! My car was being repaired down the street (taking longer than expected) and I was not expecting to have to buy lunch that day.
I will NEVER go into that restaurant again unless it's to inform this rude French lady about the details of World War II.
Excellent baked goods! – It is a bit cramped and they need both a larger space and parking places. As you can tell, the food is great and I especially love the wide variety of baked goods-as close to France as you can get! Croissants were very good..the only place they may have been a bit more buttery, flakey and authentic was at the French Club, Club Med Paradise Island.
very bad coustomer service ( the owner) – bad customer service . will never go back to that place if that it the last bakery left in the world. i rather drive to Atlanta.
Viva la France – While visiting Marietta for the Thanksgiving holiday we discovered this wonderful gem. We immediately felt in love with the display cases showcasing the most delightful, delicate and delicious french pastries. We ordered couple of sandwiches like the Croque monsieur and Jambon beurre fromage. We also had an order of the Hash Browns "A la Francaise" (all I have to say is "delicious") you must try...for a later snack we ordered the pumpkin pie creme brulee.
If you are visiting Marietta you must stop and experience a bit of France in the South
A surprisingly good French eatery in the 'burbs. – In Short
Strangely located near the train tracks on Atlanta Rd, a little piece of France seems to be airlifted and plunked down in this suburb. While Douceur’s lack of refinement and small menu is not necessarily what the French are known for, the bakery portion of the restaurant comes damn near close to the fresh breads, pastries, madeleines, and coffees that Paris boasts. Lunch is the best time to visit. Croque Monseirs and Madames are quite tasty with the béchamel and gooey melted cheese, though they should really re-think the bread they choose (try asking to swap out). Do your best to blend in to French culture by attempting to order in French, as it seems the servers are just as interested in making you feel welcome as they are feeding you--which is a welcomed idea.
Fantastic – This bakery makes the best pastries I have had, and I have been to bakeries all over the U.S. The chocolate tarte, and the fruit tarte are my personal favorites. But, eveything from the brioche to the chocolate logs are exquisite. The owners are also very nice, as are the rest of the staff. I highly, highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fantastic, authentic french pastry.
What a Gem! – I think that Douceur de France is one of the best bakeries in the neighborhood (and probably Metro Atlanta!). Living in Marietta for many years I did not hear about this lovely and very European cafe until now. Cafe food is absolutely amazing; it is very delicious, flavorful, and satisfying. It absolutely makes you want to come back for more. Also, the cafe has a large selection of decadent and wonderful cakes and their pastries and baguettes are an absolutely amazing addition to any breakfast!
