Although we haven’t been here in awhile, The French Workshop,  is still great! This location, is in the Trader Joe Shopping Center (Woodbury Plaza).

Parking is plentiful in the large, paved parking lot. Accessible spaces are located throughout the lot. Street-level, double doors welcome you into the spacious, beautifully decorated space. The left side is taken with cases offering a wide variety of pastries, cakes, pies, brownies, tarts, macaroons sandwiches and breads.  I have probably even left out a few of the things they offer.

Banquettes, with small, round tables and chairs are along the right wall. There is so much room that the offerings of bread, cakes, etc. that are located in the middle of the venue did not take away from its spaciousness. 

I needed to wait on line to order. Usually I would not be too happy to be on a line, but in this case it gave me more time to make a decision. Everything always looks delicious. My egg croissant was delicious. I also tried several mini items, each of which was delectable.  They were so good that I took some home for my “better half.”

After ordering food, one can move down the line and order from the beverage “bar” at the end of the counter. My cappuccino was excellent, foam lasting to the bottom.

A really nice touch are the silver trays used to get your food to the table, and the nice quality of the napkins. I love attention to detail!

Help is readily available for anyone needing assistance with his/her order. Please just ask!

Although all of the tables were occupied, there was a quiet, serene feeling.  We were able to sit and enjoy our orders without any feeling of being rushed.

The large, easily accessible, single occupancy restrooms are lovely. It is obvious that they were not an afterthought. The only downside is that they do not have a baby-changing station.

Each time I return it is a lovely experience! I’m always happy to return!

As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website,">, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
