It's an indulgence, but all of the treats here are exquisite. Great place to go and pretend you are rich. Or French.

Classiest pastry shop in town. A great decadent treat while in Rittenhouse that never lets you down.

Nice little spot in Center City to catch up with a friend or grab accessories to a dinner. It's clean and the AC is good.

Not very authentic pastries, disappointing macarons. – I was walking down 17th street when I spotted a pretty gift bag of French macarons (not to be confused with the American coconut macaroon) in the window at Miel, so naturally I had to have one. For years I have been splurging on exorbitant shipping costs to get authentic macarons delivered to me from Paris so imagine the horror of biting into one of these doughy, mushy adulterations of the French confection!

But of course, I will not come back! ;)

Just bought a few pastries – There aren't that many nice bakeries in the area, so I decided to try Miel. I just bought a tiramisu, opera cake, hazelnut thing and lemon tart--expensive! Customer service is blase--just like their disinterested attitude.

I tend to be a pastry snob, so cakes are just ok. The tiramisu cake actually tastes better at the Cheesecake factory. Their hazelnut crunch thing is interesting. The lemon tart is actually good...though I don't know how you can go really wrong with tarts. The opera cake is familiar--been there, tasted that.

Considering the lack of good patisseries around here, I guess beggars can't be choosers!

Surprising! – When I arrived to the US one year ago (I am French), all the people which I knew told me the amazing patisserie Miel.

Every single time I go there, around 2pm, there is no more bread, no more "pain au chocolat", and no more croissant!

When I asked when do I have to come to be able to buy this items, they told me around 8 or 9am!!!!!!!! what a chock!!!

The only thing which I been able to taste was their hot chocolate, which were a way too sugary!

All the prices about the cakes are a way too expensive!!!!!!!!

I am so surprise that there is so nice reviews about it!!!!

Patissier to the stars, right around the corner of Restaurant Row. – In Short
It's been decades since Center City has seen the likes of a pastry shop as fine as Robert Bennett's. Enter beneath a stained-glass window depicting a bee, reply with a polite "hello" to the proper clerks and prepare to salivate. Bennett uses the same sophisticated methods to create identical, affordable versions of light-as-air mille-feuilles, banana-centered gâteaux bebe and hundreds of high-end chocolates, along with eclairs and lemon squares, the likes of which you've never had.

The best bakery in Philadelphia – Miel is the best of the best pure and simple. Their lemon tart is incredible and a definite crowd pleasure -- it's always a success whenever I bring it as a hostess gift or to a party.

I am always impressed with the friendly counter service and the quality of the goods. The prices are reasonable considering the quality and Center City location. You can pay far more and receive far less from many other bakery/cafes.

Miel provided the cake for my July 16 wedding at the Ballroom at the Ben, and it was absolutely gorgeous. The cake itself was delicious. People who normally hate wedding cake all remarked that it was moist and flavorful. We ordered the Elegance design (using buttercream icing, not fondant) in the lemon-almond pound cake flavor. The filling was raspberry jam with fresh raspberries and vanilla buttercream icing. The buttercream had a rich, velvety butter taste and texture without being too heavy. It melted in your mouth. The sweetness of the raspberries perfectly balanced the tartness of the light lemon cake.

The bakery itself delivered the cake precisely on time and set it up exactly as we requested. We had a free cake tasting prior to placing our order, and they were very accommodating (they even served me Illy coffee while I tasted the samples). The sales staff were friendly and not pretentious in the least, and I had a very positive experience.

Perfect, and I mean perfect, chocolate croissants and macaroons. As good as Laduree in Paris which is saying lots. THe chocolate eclair, and rigoler were both wodnerful. I was in Philly for a meeting at the convenvtion center and I walked 15 minutes to and from every day just to stuff myself with their wodnerful pastries.
