You like something fresh and sweet? Me too. Try La Baguette on Poplar. Not a donut shop, but fresh cinnamon rolls, bear claws, cookies, and of course baguettes. I have been there many times and morning or afternoon everything is always fresh. When I want something really good I gotta go there.

The service has been subpar over multiple visits. Please train your staff to be more friendly. Today we got our favorite- 3 chocolate tarts for the 3 kids. They were all missing the inside marzipan filling and were entirely made of chocolate ganache. This made them overly sweet and not balanced. The staff acknowledged the mistake but only offered to give a different treat to one person. The management needs to be more present and train the staff to be more friendly and courteous. Otherwise the experience is going to degrade to a fast food joint. That would be a shame as going here has been part of our tradition when we take the kids to the library next door.

Family of 6, only $13 for pastries+drinks. Not bad. We liked the atmosphere.

My fiance's office Christmas party usually has macaroons on the buffet table but sadly they didn't this year so we were on our way home and I googled where we could buy them. La Baguette showed having them but it was just past closing time. We pulled up and to our surprise, the security guard unlocked the door and asked if we wanted to purchase something. We shouted, "Yes!" and were allowed to do so. We got our macaroons and some Christmas sugar cookies as well. Thanks for being so kind and for making our night!!!

Love the food and pastries but terrible service over the phone. Terrible etiquette by phone. Tried to place an order over the phone with multiple calls and after 5 attempts was told "were really not taking any more orders tonight".

Terrible customer service!!!. I've been trying to call all week and the phone line is always busy. I've been trying to place a cake order. But, I just called twice and the associate who is picking up the phone has hung up on me twice. I asked if I can place a cake order and that person just hung up on me. I don't understand why a bakery who bakes cake is not taking cake orders but has someone working for them and just hanging up on their customers!!!! Rude. I'm so disappointed because this is one of my favorite cake places!

We really enjoyed our time here. The service was great and the pastries were yummy. It's super cute inside. I would love to see them freshen it up a bit with some new table cloths and fresher French decor. It would really set this place over the top.


have been ordering their strawberry chantilly for over ten years. it usually had a problem that the cake itself was over-moist. when i placed the order, i specifically told them not to make it too wet. however, when i brought the cake to my friend's house, the box was totally wet with the liquid from the cake. very embrassing. will never order from them again.

La Baguette is my happy place. They have the best chicken salad in town and their pastries are hands-down the best in Memphis. I love all their soups, but the squash soup is extra good. I love the ambiance of the brick and cafe tables, and there is light music piped in. It's a great place to catch up with friends or to even have a quick meeting! If you love the chicken salad as much as I do, you can buy it by the pound to take home!

Delicious baked treats and the staff is very nice!

Quiche was awesome!!! Corn chowder is a must try!! Bistro feel diner with sandwich, soup, and salad options. Small, but reasonable portions. Bakery desserts available. Nice setting. But- we sat at table order section and the waitress got the order wrong twice! And she didn't seem apologetic at all. Service was poor. Cost was a bit high for what you get.

Wonderful atmosphere. Love the feel of outdoor cafe inside. Delicious food. Simple and elegant. Ice tea was perfectly brewed and the A/C was frigid. Perfect combo on muggy Memphis day

Great shop, only thing it lacks is an espresso machine.

This place is underrated. For $13 we got two coffees, a giant pecan cream cheese danish, and the most delicious quiche lorraine, which came with an orange slice and muffin. Everything was delicious and the sweet lady working the front counter was extremely attentive and gracious. Loved her! Yes, the place could be spruced up and an upgrade on coffee would be nice (I craved an iced coffee on this hot late summer morning, which they couldn't provide.), but I had a 5 star breakfast with 5 star service and left full and happy.

Had a simple ham and cheese on a wonderful croissant and then 3 tiny desserts that were to die for! Try the pecan sandies!!

This is probably the best smelling place in Memphis...I's freshly baked bread and pastries! Delicious lunch options and the pastries are fantastic for any time of day! The staff is always helpful and friendly

DELICIOUS pastries!! Can’t get enough.

Love this place... have been going for over 20 years. Breakfast sandwich or Lunch always good... pastries and cakes can't be beat...Beautiful wedding cakes. My favorite squash soup served on Monday or Thursday. In the winter I love the French Onion with a baguette...

Hoping to find croissants as big as our head, we weren't disappointed. I get the feeling this place has been here a long time. Staff were either overwhelmed that Saturday morning or are generally blasé about customer service. Decor could stand to be updated. Otherwise, good selection of breads and pastries.

This is the perfect lunch place! I ordered the turkey panini. The herb focaccia was so crispy and flavorful. The iced tea was brewed to perfection, my mom ordered the club and it was so fresh and delicious. They also have many sumptuous desserts to choose from inside the pastry case. Can’t wait to go back!

Keji Kujjo

Great customer service. Didn't really see a lot of pastry options when we visited so we got bread. Maybe it was the timing? Charming interior and laidback atmosphere though.

Cathy Simons

My waitress was really nice. Food was, as always, great.

Tonya Birdsong

Excellent customer service! Ms. Lorraine is always cheerful with a positive attitude. I make certain I receive a hug from her each time I visit the restaurant! Great pastries! My favorite is the Cream Cheese Pecan Danish! Also, the Corn Chowder and Chicken Salad are tasty, too!

Dianna Douglas

LOVE the corn chowder and chicken salad

Kate Jorgensen

Excellent fresh desserts, quiche, and breads at good prices. Always love stopping by!

This use to be my favorite pastry place. I went in to try out some danish, but the quality don't seem to be the same. The poppyseed danish that I got was kind of dry. I bought a strawberry cake from them last time, but the flavor seems off to much whipped cream and not enough flavor. I gave them another try today, but the pastry are average no longer as great as I once remember. So sad I use to love this place.

Thanks so much for our delicious King Cakes at The Gardens of Germantown. They were enjoyed by our residents and staff.

I love la baguette. the people are inviting and it's cute how it looks like a little shop. I always get the spicy tomato soup, and it's always so good. my only complaint would be the service, because it can be slow sometimes. la baguette will always be one of my favorite restaurants in Memphis and will definitely go back many times in the future.

I have been going to the bakery since the 80's. I love love love all the goodies they have to offer. unfortunately I have moved away, but when I visit Memphis I always find my way here for some goodness . wish there was one my way. bon appetite!

It was 20 degrees and 6:30pm...we wanted to try a new place with good bread and soup. This place was worse than awful. We ordered French onion and tomato soup (their signatures) and garlic bread. Both soups were stone cold. The tomato soup tasted like it was left at the bottom of the can and left out for days. We left it on the table and went to Panera. Sure, I get it that it was right before they close, but this was unacceptable. It was a waste of time and money.

I drop by La Baguette from time to time. I really want them to be good, but they generally disappoint. If you want a king cake, forget it. They don't have any in stock. They make to order. Last year I ordered one and they wrote down the wrong date for pickup. Today I stopped in after lunch just to make sure they didn't have a king cake made and to enjoy a pastry either way. Not only did they not have a king cake they hardly had anything and they had nothing that looked good enough to want to eat. I grew up in New Orleans where a bakery that makes excellent pastries is a valued asset in every community. It seems to me that La Baguette is putting in just enough effort to occupy the niche without actually providing the service. They're putting in just about a 2 star effort. They should either step up or move on and let someone else make a go of it.

Today I had the pleasure of visiting this cute and quaint bakery shop. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love love almost aaLL things sweet. The service was awesome. I was greeted with smiles and helpful staff members. Even spoke to some obvious regulars who loved the place. There is a great assortment of baked delicacy to choose from. I had a Pecan Cream Cheese Danish and an Apple Raisin Danish. Both huge...I also purchases a Strawberry Cream Cheese Croissant and a Apple Turnover. The Pecan Cream Cheese Danish slightly warmed was simply AMAZING! I can't wait to have another. I plan to enjoy the Apple Raisin Danish tomorrow. It's so worth the trip. I live Mississippi and can't wait to go back.
