No joke, better or as good as the best I've had anywhere, including France. Fruit tarts are out of this world. All of it made on the premises. The fruit tarts are works of perfection, so good and every sinles berry is perfect, that it almost looks fake. Breakfast is really good, baked eggs and also the waffles with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. The staff is super nice. Back in the day, not so much. The only thing I really don't like, and won't order here is the coffee. They brew the good stuff Lavazza , but it's just not very good. Maybe not brewing it right, who knows. Can't comment on espresso drinks though. Only the drip. Anyways, go there, it's really good and totally chill.

For us europeans it´s very unusual to find a place with so many healthy deserts! Free from gluten and absolutely delicious, I did not even think that you can actually make gluten free wonderful deserts like the pistachio mousse ! I would do just anything to get that recipe! It´s very easy to feel relaxed and the crowd is nice friendly and interesting, we got to talk with a few nice people that helped us to find a rest vintagestore. The cappuccino was great, we have not been able to find a place that could make a decent cappuccino all week , sp we were thrilled and actually went back there twice the same day! Highly recommended!

I have been living in Williamsburg for over 8 yrs. now and I am a little suprised at the reviews here for Fabiennes. This is by far one of the best spots in the hood. Good coffee, very good food, and amazing desserts, plus people watching and ambiance from Fabiennes is the best. The service used to be quite bad because the waitresses were rude, but that has improved and the new people that work there are much better. Its a solid spot hats always been very consistent with the quality of their food and desserts. Their baked eggs are also def. worth trying.

I used to go in here every day for lunch and the girl who is generally behind the counter has never once gotten my order right. I often order the croque monsieur and I always ask for it VERY well done because sometimes they will bring it out and it is literally frozen solid in the middle. They still often can't handle that. I have never found any of the staff to be rude, just extremely incompetent.

I've read other reviews about the poor service, but I had an excellent experience with the staff. After a lovely breakfast of baked eggs (with Fabiane's excellent bread) and coffee, I left the cafe and forgot my cell phone. One of the servers found it and not only set it aside for safekeeping, but scrolled through the numbers until she found a listing for "mom," called my mother and let her know about the missing phone. My mom alerted my friends and I was able to return and retrieve the phone within minutes. Thank you to the fabulous staff at Fabiane's for saving me from a missing-phone nightmare!
