French-inspired nook with an all-day cafe menu that's renowned for its made-from-scratch desserts.- Google
"Chicken Pesto Sandwich and English bread pudding ... droooool."
"Quite disappointed that Kneaders does a way better job with the pastries."

I loved the breakfast menu, and the macaroons are the best that I've had in Utah. The only let down was that the menu had yogurt with "fresh" berries. When I got it the berries were good, but they were middle of winter good. Not what I was expecting seeing as berries were in season.

I've noticed that based on reviews, people either love this place or hate it. Based on my experience, I'm in the latter category. It's fairly sad when a French restaurant can't even produce a decent French onion soup (utterly without flavor, except for the burnt broth overtones, and a slab of Swiss cheese plopped on top) or macaroons (wallpaper paste might have been more lively on the palate). My dinner companions' seafood risotto was equally as uninspiring, and our server was checked out, so I'm not quite sure why this joint is always jumping. Location?? It was a swing and a miss...

My husband and I are long time fans of Gourmandise. We have loved the atmosphere, the service and most especially the food and pastries. It makes me so sad that our last three visits here have been less than we are used to. The pastries in particular are not as good as they used to be, it seems like they are cutting corners with fillings that leave a bad aftertaste (Mille Fois). The tomatoes in my salad were absolutely mushy, as were my husbands. The quiche was oily. The restaurant itself was not as clean as it used to be with food splattered on the wall and dust on the windowsills. Also, my water glass, my lunch plate and my knife were all either visibly dirty or had hair on them. I'm giving them 3 stars because our waitress Elena, who has waited on us several times, was efficient, accommodating, and so sweet. I did see a waiter spill quite a bit out of a glass of milk for the next table, he looked to see if anyone at that table had noticed (they had not). He wiped the milk off the outside of the glass with his hairy arm and served it!

I work downtown, and this place is a little outside my normal lunchtime exploration radius. I was delighted when a friend introduced me, and I have since introduced several of my coworkers. The lunchtime environment is busy, but I've never had trouble finding a seat right away. I've tried several sandwiches, and my favorite was the French Dip--I highly recommend it! The lunch portions here are just right, leaving me pleasantly full, but not groggy for the afternoon. While the pastries might fall a little short of "authentic," they are quite delicious, and it's hard to resist them.

I absolutely LOVE their bakery items and their food is good too! Every year for my birthday my family gets me the Mixed Fruit Tarte. It's absolutely delicious. The fresh fruit, glazed, the custard, and the crust is just perfect. Good thing I don't work there I'd probably just eat pastries all day long! Yum!!

We overdose on perfect pastries like the black and white cake and the almond bar everytime we come back to Utah. We can make approximate copycat recipes, but there is no bakery where we live now and we can't match it. It is what we miss most about Utah.

I am french and met the Chef who gave me and and my friend a free desert. They also did a great job on the large platter we ordered for our wedding in August 2015. It seriously taste like in France! I would HIGHLY recommend the Pailletin!!! the raspberry tarts, and the Millefeuille (the regular one)! you won't regret it!

I love having lunch at Gourmandise. I'm particularly fond of their lox and bagel and French dip sandwiches. I've never been when it hasn't been busy, but service has always been fast and accommodating. The gluten free chocolate cake is as moist and delicious as the most gluten filled cake you can find.
