    Almond croissant. You don't need to know anything else. Just do It. (end of review) Just kidding (but not really). When I found out La Gourmandine was coming to Mount Lebanon, to say I was stoked is an understatement. Many times I had visited the Lawrenceville location later in the day only to find my favorite treat out of stock. Now that they're in our back yard, it's more than easy to run for a morning pastry and a coffee (probably not a good thing for my wallet nor my waist). Honestly, everything here is solid (and from what I've heard from a few French friends, truly representative of a French pastry shop). A word of warning... this place gets busy during the weekend mornings and you can easily drop a small fortune on baked goods if you don't exhibit self-control. Try stopping by on a weekday morning if you can, grab a coffee and enjoy one of their pastries warmed up... doesn't get any better than that in the South Hills!

    I was pleasently surprised when I found out that one of the best bakeries in the city (according to Yelp)opened up a south hills location. My first visit was late in the day on a Saturday. Unfortunately, almost everything was sold out. I ended up with a chocolate croissant. It was flaky and delicious but I was not blown away. I wondered what all the hype was about. My second encounter with LG was during a party I attended. LG supplied the desserts in the form of bite size portions of their popular treats including (my fav) the chocolate eclair. Ok. Now I'm starting to get it. Those were three delicious bites. My next encounter was earlier in the day on a Saturday. I opted for the cherry bread pudding. OMG. Yep. I'm converted. It was so incredible. Hubs wanted a taste but there was no way I was going to share. Overall, forget about the calories and just go! My only gripe is that all of the portions are huge! I'd love to be able to stop in and get several small croissants or other treats.

    Managed to stop by today and I loved it!! The chocolate croissant reminded me of growing up in France. I mean the smell of the place was straight nostalgic for me!! I bought my dad a pistachio pastry because he's visiting tomorrow and he'll definitely enjoy it. If you love pastries, check them out! Delicious if not a little more expensive then the usual bakery- but this is my new usual now. Support local business anyways guys!

    Awesome to have a french bakery in the neighborhood! If your are someone who likes to eat French pastries and bread, LaG is great. I love almond croissant and LaG's didn't disappoint. It has been hard to find a great croissant since return from NYC years ago, and now have the place to go. The Lunette was excellent, too.

    The best bakery I've ever been to! Highly Recommend the Almond Croissant, Ham & Cheese croissant (have them warm it up!) and any of the Tarts!

    Love this place as much as the original. Literally everything is delicious. Love to stop by and pick up a coffee and croissant. My husband loves their lemon tart and opera bars. The place can be packed on Saturday and Sunday mornings, so a pre-office drive-by during the week is a good plan. (Parking can be an issue...)

    It's wonderful that such a nice bakery has opened in the South Hills, but until they figure out how to manage their popularity, I won't be a fan. I've gone three times in the two weeks they've opened. The first time I went at about 11:30 for just a baguette and I waited in line 10 minutes, behind only two people. The next time I stopped in for a baguette about 2pm and they had none left, so I left, too. (Seriously - a french bakery should NEVER run out of baguettes.) The straw that broke the camel's back was arriving this past Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The line was out the door - kudos to them for their popularity - but it took 40 minutes to get served! And all I wanted was a baguette and two croissants. They need to figure out a better system, like more staff or two registers. If I ever see more than two cars in the parking lot, I will head straight to Giant Eagle for my bread instead.

    Wow... Great place... Finally a true French pastry shop in the south hills... For those who want to complain about a wait and wanting to go GE to get there "baguette" please continue to do so it only means not for those of us who appreciate true craftsmanship...

    My wife was so excited when this location opened. We stop in regularly after the kids are off to school. We have yet to find anything that isn't fantastic. Not only are the pastries great, but it's a great place to stop for lunch.

    Utterly.unbelievably.delicious. Seriously. The pistachio eclair....there are no words for it. :-) Yes, parking and space is at a premium and you may have to wait, but the wait is well worth it. Every pastry that we tried was unique and delicious!

    The best bakery in the south hills! We buy bread and desserts here as much as possible. My personal favorite are their almond croissants!

    New location, same amazing breads, pastries and French yummies as the more well known place in Lawrenceville. I love this place. There is usually a long line on weekends, but it is so worth the wait. Baguettes, quiche, croissants, it's all delicious.

    Paris! What can I say? I was thrilled that this French inspired bakery opened a second location in Mt Lebanon. They have their own parking but the lot is very small and of course filled. Across the street is an abandoned gas station where I would imagine you can park if need be. Stopped here for lunch with my daughter. I ordered the goat cheese and spinach quiche while she settled for a ham and cheese on a French baguette. They advised me for dessert to get the almond danish which is filled with almond creme. It must have been very popular since I got the last one! I noticed later on they restocked them. That sandwich of her's was so huge I thought there was no way she could finish it but she did. My quiche was heated and brought out to me. It was okay. I'm not used to goat cheese but it wasn't overly filling so I could enjoy my danish. That almond danish was very flaky and literally came apart on me as I ate it. It was delicious! She had some sort of chocolate bar dessert which she let me sample. It was very rich and quite filling had I ordered it. They only have a few tables if you wish to eat in. Take out is available and of course you can call if you want to preorder baked goods or their breads. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you eat inside then your food is served on actual dishes and they will let you box up leftovers to take home. As we were leaving I purchased a fruit filled macaroon cookie for my daughter and a chocolate chip style danish for a friend. I was told that danishes will only last a day but does not need refrigeration while anything in their refrigerated case should be placed in the refrigerator once you get home. This place is easy to miss since it sits near the corner of Cochran and Cedar roads. Still it made for a nice mid day treat for both of us. My advice would be to get there early for best selection. Will definitely visit it again sometime in the future.

    I must admit I am a complete fan of Jean-Marc Chatellier's French Bakery in Millvale, but I gave La Gourmandine a try and they come a close second. There was a line on Saturday morning even before the doors opened, and I think a line is a common occurrence. The almond croissants are quite excellent, plus I bought a classic lemon tart (Citron). I'm holding out for Jean-Marc's in terms of prices and quality, however La Gourmandine will do if I can't get to Millvale.

    If you're a fan of the Lawranceville location but live on the "other side of the river" you are in for a treat! La Gourmandine's new location is just as good as the original. If you love fresh pastries and baked bread than this place is a must. I'm not going to be redundant and describe all of my favorites, let me just say that I haven't had a pastry I didn't like from this place. Space is limited and the parking lot is super tiny so if you arrive at a peak hour...good luck with that. Lucky for me (not so lucky for the waistline) I live within walking distance ; p

    This place. I can't even... It is just incredible. AND now a second location!!! The best french pastries I've ever had. Wait. The best pastries I've ever had! And the most artful too! Walking in you're met with the most amazing smell you've ever experienced in your life. Then you gaze across the display of beautiful creations, you almost don't wait to eat them. But you do. And you enjoy them, immensely. There really isn't a pasty I've had that I didn't like. The almond croissants are my fave's, but I also enjoy their pistachio desserts and chocolate wafer-like desserts. Forgive me for not remembering their proper name. I think I was too busy shoving them in my mouth. This location is a lot bigger than their orginal one, plus the free parking lot is a major perk compared to the Lawrenceville street parking. Plus, there's free wifi! I think it would be dangerous to sit here for a while...

    I don't need to say anything that hasn't already been covered in the other reviews. This place is decadent. If you want high quality, delicious pastries at great prices - this is the place to go. It's awesome that this second location has opened in the south hills! The only recommendation would be to add a few cafe tables outside. Get there early to get first dibs on your favorite items before they sell out!
