About as far from me as any restaurant in NH could be, but sure sounds like a fun visit:

Wow, what a small world -- one of my best friends, whose mother lives in Colebrook, JUST told me about this place. Both of us just got back from studying in Paris and we're dying for French bread and pastries. I am absolutely going to visit on my next trip to Colebrook.

That's a great story, too. Really shows how a NH community can get together for a good cause.

This story was in the Union-Leader a few weeks back. I swear that our immigration policies are so completely screwed up. Let non-productive illegals in by the millions, and throw out productive NATURALIZED citizens simply because they don't put enough money into the IRS coffers.

Welcome to Bizarro World.

For me it's all about the baguettes. I would love to go to this bakery and stock up!

I have been here twice on our way to Pittsburg and it was just ok. I thought it was expensive too. I am more a fan of Italian bakeries as opposed to French ones, so perhaps that is why I was not too impressed.

I do wish them luck in getting the visa mess cleared up, however.

The almond croissants are to kill for. Croissants filled with almond slices and custard. When friends come up from down below it is always their first stop here in town. It seems the whole town either called or wrote to express our need for a decent bakery. It's nice to see the little guy win for a change .

I don't think I've ever been to a french bakery actually. I may have to try it, except its really far from me (in NH terms).

I just like stories of people helping people when needed.

oooo! sounds almost like 'wienerbrot' - a Danish pastry (that is: in Denmark and sometimes Norway) that often uses almond paste center in the flaky pastry. A major weakness of mine! Good thing I can't find it over here.
