Best. Donuts. Ever.
Great addition to upper king. I want to try every flavor!
I am on my way there now! This* is probably as close as I will get to Paris in the immediate future. MB is simply the best of the best! The croissants are to die for no matter which kind you get. Also, the baguettes, warmed or not, are wonderful with dinner, plain or with PB&J!

The most amazing authentic French Macaroons! And of course only made by authentic French pastry chefs, which only makes it better! My visit was great and friendly! I hope to make this a regular visit in my week. There are definitely some things us American can not do better!
If only the attitude of the saleswoman were as cheerful as the pretty macaroons, I would consider returning to this little bakery. Alas, it was not, and I will not.
I believe new owners.
I was not impressed. Everything LOOKED beautiful, but the cakes, cookies, and brownies I tried (my friend and I ordered a lot) were heavy and not very flavorful. I give them points for style, but I bake stuff better than that at home all the time.
I dare someone to try to take a picture inside of the baked goods and see what happens.
I have been here many times but today will be the last. Apparently the chef was late and having a bad day so the opening time was not as posted on the door. A verbal attack with profanity by a hysterical chef rather than an explanation is not the way to ensure a repeat customer.
I live in the neighborhood and eat here often. It is truly ALL stars. It's one of Sal's restaurants. Everything fresh and yummy. It's super casual, walk up to the counter and order, then sit and they bring the food. Pour your drink or get it from the cooler.
The desserts are famous and worth every calorie!!
I think the reason that there aren't more reviews is that the locals want to keep it secret! It's also small and cozy.
Oh, Lordy! What a find in Charleston!! From a block away you can follow your nose, a MUST if you are to visit Charleston, one of these off the track places where tourists would not go..
Everything was great!! big fat buttery flaked croissants,
with almond center, without, with the chocolat, raspberry centers oh, my, did I feast!!
the macarons too perfect for words, the chocolat ones, the big sized ones, oh, heaven!
I want to have them all shipped to me in Seattle, right now!!!!
Not only perfectly beautiful to look at, but every one with a distinct different flavor. pistachio being one heavenly one too!
I felt I have found my ultimate bakery.. i have tasted and feel i have lived.! thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Their croissants are as buttery, flaky and delicious as the best in Paris.
I'm not sure where you got that information but all their ingredients come from Sysco and Costco, which are not local at all. Nothing is orgnaic except for the strawberry jam and the peanut butter.
Love, love, love. I agree, they're a little pricey, but they use local and organic ingredients whenever possible. It's also a locally-owned business. All the more reason to try their amazing flavors.
I love Saffron. It's not "precious" but honest value for the price. We got my daughters b-day cakes here many years (chocolate mousse cake) and we also love the veggie curry. The owner is a kind hearted person who gives to the community.
The veggie pita was awful...a few veggies with spaghetti sauce poured over it. Just tasteless for around $9.
Wild Flour is the best. The pesto, sun dried tomato, mozzarella scone is my favorite, but everything I've ever eaten there has been delicious. Lauren is fantastic. I hate to miss a single Sticky Bun Sunday. I always have such a great experience there!
I stopped in for sticky bun Sunday this morning and ended up getting a strawberry/nutella turnover as well. It was so good I ate the whole thing in the car on the way home and didn't save a single bite for my husband like I thought I would. It was amazing and so affordable for such a large pastry. I'll definately be back next Sunday.
Wild Flour is fantastic. Great place to get a terrific cup of coffee and a scone, muffin, cookie, cupcake or--on Sundays--the best sticky bun ever created. This is the the kind of unique local business that helps make Charleston such a vibrant, interesting place.
I refuse to buy cookies, tarts, or cupcakes anywhere else in Charleston because they just won't stack up to Sugar.
