Long a favorite bakery with Palm Beachers, who send their chauffeurs to pick up petits fours and croissants and with locals or tourists hunting for a quick, delicious lunch, La Bonne Bouche started out small and has since expanded. Apart from the lovely courtyard centered around a fountain, they've added a full dining room serving bistro-style dinners Thursday through Saturday. Proprietors Eric and Sara Regnier (Eric is French, Sara American) serve homemade pate sandwiches en baguette, niçoise salad, smoked salmon platters, and the melt-in-your-mouth pastries that landed them a cameo on the Food Network.
