The newly opened French bakery, LeRouge Boulangerie, is located on Kercheval in Grosse Pointe Park. The bright red building is hard to miss. When walking up to the bakery I immediately noticed the inviting outdoor seating under the red and white striped awnings. The smell of fresh coffee was strong outside of the bakery along with typical coffee shop music. As soon as I walked through the door I was taken aback by the soft decor and the stained glass window that lined the back of the store to display the pastry chefs at work.
Unsurprisingly, the line was wrapped around the side of the store. Once I finally made it to the front of the line, I felt a little overwhelmed looking at all of the pastry options they had to offer. I settled on a pain au chocolat, or a chocolate croissant, and a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice. My total came to $15.01, which in my opinion is a little pricey for only two items. The small glass of orange juice, although delicious, was not worth eight dollars. The chocolate croissant, on the other hand, was worth every cent. It was perfectly warm and flaky, and I was able to tell that it had been freshly baked that morning.

The employees were very helpful and answered my numerous questions about the menu and bakery itself. However, their current hours of operation are difficult to follow. Their Instagram and website both say that their hours are 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. but the first two times I went they were already closed two hours early. So if you are wanting to check it out, which you absolutely should, go as early as possible. All in all, I would give LeRouge Boulangerie 4.5 stars for their food quality and atmosphere.
