In the Mt. Washington area of Baltimore, Maryland, there is a small French bakery that you may just miss if you drive by too fast. Located on Falls Road in a quaint purple house is the most delicious French bakery and cafe. This hidden gem, Bonjour French Bakery/Cafe, has a wonderful selection of savory and sweet treats that will amaze all of your senses. They always say the best travel tips are from the locals, so I'm passing this special one on to you.
At Bonjour French Bakery/Cafe, you'll find ample seating inside and on the porch outside. It's perfect to sit and enjoy a delicious bite in a charming atmosphere any time of year. They also cater local parties and events at the venue of your choice. However for our most recent visit, we were hosting a Sunday brunch and carried out more than a few specialties.
On the savory side, the buttery ham and cheese filled croissants melt in your mouth.
Virtual Hint: If you are enjoying a croissant in the cafe, they will warm one up for you. But if you get one to-go, it toasts up perfectly in an oven or microwave in your hotel room or kitchen.
If you are a fan of chocolate (like my family) then you will love the decadent chocolate mousse cake. Not only is it gorgeous but the smooth chocolate flavor is incredible.
Of course, individual serving-sized selections are always my favorite - that way I can sample a few! The fruit flavored mousse, strawberry shortcake, and chocolate mousse with liquor, dark cherries, and a hazelnut crust, are always crowd pleasers.
If you are in Baltimore, Maryland and looking for a delicious treat for breakfast, tea time, or really anytime, then definitely plan a visit to Bonjour French Bakery/Cafe. It's not too far from I-83 and only a few exits up from Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Let me know if you come to visit, I'll happily meet you there!

Thanks for cruising by! Along with creating this website and blog, I work in an office full-time and as a mom to two energetic teenage boys. With our family's busy work and school schedule, we look forward to traveling during holidays. Although it seems that our family can never agree on anything, we do when it comes to vacations. We typically travel on cruises or stay at luxury hotels. We enjoy upscale dining, beautiful decor, excellent service, and spacious accommodations. However, with a family including two teenage boys, we still need family friendly and comfortable.

Time flies! We are quickly moving into the cooler months and that means the winter holidays are on the way!
We'll be heading to a winter wonderland in Washington, D.C. this holiday season and staying at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. We are excited to try their renovated restaurant Article One and experience the winter flair!
A stop at the National Christmas Tree is a must, as well as to explore the city for all of the best holiday decorations.
