I love mocha's the size of my head – I love the La Boulange for a quick breakfast. They have tastey croissant breakfast sandwiches and HUGE large mochas that they serve in bowls (see one of my profile pictures). This place gets pretty crowded, so finding a table can be difficult. Ordering to go is always a great option!
exelent food but........ – food is very good. however they have some employees whit not idea about costumer service!
(little rude) my stars only because the company. but I'll never back to this location even when it's in my neighborhood !
(NOT manager in the store 'Isabel" in that moment)
Besides the parking (quelle horreur!) this place serves food that is quelle yum all the way. I like how the food is cheap, but still very good. The smidgeons of salad here and there to help unclog a tiny portion of your artery helps too since good heaves, the food is just so delectably good!!! My favorite are their savory tarts and crocques. The french onion soup is just so-so, no biggie, btw. And the lavander macaron is waaay too sweet!
Great spot – Lovely baked goods. Nice quick efficient staff. Decent prices and healthy options. I come here often and really enjoy the atmosphere.
coffee as it should be served...in bowls – I was thrilled to receive my cafe au lait in a bowl; it reminded me of time spent in France. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The staff were very personable. The service table was well stocked and offered butter, apricot (my fave) and raspberry jam, as well as a large jar of Nutella. The Tropezienne was wonderful and I have confidence that all other pastries they may offer in the future will be just as delightful. French onion was the daily special soup offering; it was pretty good and the portion generous at a mere $5/bowl. Seating was comfortable but the vacated tables could have been bussed more diligently (promptly); many customers (including myself) pushed plates/cups/saucers/glasses to adjacent un-bussed tables in order to dine. Other than my previous remark, I recommend this cafe; the experience was positive overall!
Nice bakey, good bread, not enough pastries – This is a local coffee, the bread is definitely good. We enjoyed our drinks as well. Ordered regular coffee, latte and tea and they were all good (difficult to miss you would argue but still...).
I was looking forward to fresh French viennoiserie but was a little disappointed at the selection. Nonetheless we had bread and some pastry. We enjoyed our take away breakfast .
We didn't try the sandwiches but they seemed quite tasty. Will probably go back if the opportunity presents itself. At least for the bread. You should be prepared to face a line when you arrive (we certainly were not alone).
Parking could prove to be a little challenging, had to drive around the block a few times.

This is a very sweet little cafe. Yummy sandwiches, fresh bakery items and very good service. I haven't tried their salads yet, but they always look tasty and fresh. Great coffee as well. Nice little french style cafe and very cute.
Editorial Review – In the heart of North Beach, Pascal Rigo's fifth bakery-cafe offers a menu of housemade soups, fresh-ingredient salads and tartines.
