Sixtine G. booked an event for 130 people
If I could put 10 stars I will do it! Thank you so much Joanna and Patrick (Joanna's husband from the Marais Bakery, the caterer next door). The experience last night was incredible from the beginning: organization upfront/the layout of the space/the help provided during the event/the closure. You are so accommodating it is a pleasure to organize an event at your place. The space is welcoming/charming and so French! exactly what we were looking for. Thank you so much. All the best.

We have nothing but great things to say about our experience here! The food was fantastic, Joanna was a doll, and the service was great. Our guests were impressed and had a fantastic time! What a gem of a location :) We highly recommend this space, and hope to come back next year!
Anna C. booked a 1st birthday party for 100 people
We had a wonderful time planning and hosting a 1st birthday party with 60 people for our twins here! The space is clean, bright, spacious and very well decorated with super cute french decor, perfect for our french patisserie theme. They have plenty of tables and chairs to use, sofas, super cute swinging chairs, and more that we used. Joanna and her team were so great to work with from the beginning - nice, kind, responsive, flexible, accommodating, honest, and had great execution on the day of. They also provided catering services for us and the food was beautifully presented and tasty! Our guests raved about the food and space. I had such an amazing experience here and would love to book this space again in the future (or have a re-do of the birthday! ;)). Thank you Joanna and Patrick for a fantastic experience and day!
Nicole L. booked an event for 125 people
We had the most epic party hosted at this venue. Joanna was amazingly kind, responsive and so easy to work with. Everything went so smoothly, and all of our 100+ guests raved about how awesome the space was. We cannot thank you enough for everything!
Linda J. booked an event for 125 people
Joanna was a great host! She spent time prior to the event helping us understand the layout and what was possible in terms of set-up. Her team was super helpful during the set-up, actual event, and breakdown. Not to mention, the space is gorgeous. I would highly recommend it.
This space was incredible! We hosted a 35 person, 3 day offsite. The front half of the space was perfect for breakfast, lunch, coffee, and snacks. The back half of the space was really well light, quiet, and had a projector. Here are a few things that made this space so special. 1. The space is completely private and the design felt warm and welcoming. 2. Patrick and Joanna own the French Cafe next door and were able to provide fresh breakfast, lunch, pastries, and afternoon cookies. Joanna listened to me and really helped bring my ideas to life. 3. We were able to open a tab next door so our team could order specialized drinks during breaks. 4. Everyone we worked with along the way from their team was so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back for our next event!
