1. It's incredibly convenient! Choose how many weekly or monthly deliveries you want, choose the date and time and prepone or postpone up to 9pm on the day before a delivery. It's never been this easy to enjoy delicious French casual cuisine in Bangalore!

2. We treat you! Get a free FRENCH BOX and a special surprise when you subscribe for 6, and save up to 12% when you pay upfront.

3. Did we say your FRENCH BOX is prepared fresh in the morning? Our products are taken out of the ovens only a few hours before we deliver them to you, making them as fresh and delicious as they can be. Skip the morning traffic and enjoy French "Art de Vivre" from your preferred location!

Absolutely! Simply select "One Time Purchase" after choosing the delivery date and time for your FRENCH BOX.

For now, you can't do it yourself. In the meantime, give us a call, or send us an email, and we'll make it happen.

You can subscribe to as many FRENCH BOX as you desire and determine different delivery dates & time for each. You can manage the delivery dates, times and addresses in the Manage my FRENCH BOX Subscriptions section (once logged in).

Because all our products are freshly prepared overnight, we cannot do same day deliveries. For next day deliveries, you should place your order before 9pm.

We aim to deliver all over Bangalore. You can see all the areas where we deliver here.

Our Breads are the only products that do not contain eggs, except for Pan Bagna which does.

All our products contain gluten and dairy products, and may contain traces of nuts.

Breads and Viennese: They are made every morning to be delivered as fresh as possible to you. You can keep them fresh up to one day after their delivery, or you can also freeze and reheat them. Storage in a plastic bag will help preserve the bread’s moistness. The crust will soften and will regain its crunchiness if you reheat it. A paper bag or bread box will result in a little less moistness, but the crust will retain more of its crunchiness.

Brownies, Cookies and Muffins: You can keep them 3 to 4 days in a dry place, but we recommend to eat them within two days. Why wait to enjoy them!?

French Macarons: You can keep them 5 days in their box, in the refrigerator. Please never try to warm them up. The French macarons can stay up to 3 hours at room temperature.

Pastries: We recommend to eat them on the day of delivery, but you can also enjoy them the day after. You should keep them in your refrigerator.

Quiches: Please keep them in your refrigerator 2 days at the most.

Breads and Viennese: Reheat them in your oven (not microwave) at 180°F 10 to 15 minutes. You can also unfreeze a baguette and grill its slices in the toaster. Frenchies like to put their croissant in their coffee for breakfast. But you can also open it and add your prefered jam or chocolate spread to have a sweet breakfast!

Breads can also be eaten the day after delivery for breakfast, but you will need to use your toaster/griller to give it some savor. Have it with some butter and/or jam to again enjoy this traditional piece of French culture.

When your bread baguette is too old to be used for sandwiches or appetizer toasts, you can always crush the pieces to make "panure" (bread crumbs) and use it for making crunchy and tasty chicken or fish fillets. Simply slice the chicken or fish into fillets, soak them in egg yolks and roll them in the "panure” before pan-frying them. Délicieux!

The Pan Bagna is the typical bread to use for your burgers. Better eaten when it’s really fresh, this bread is also perfect for your sandwiches. If you are ready to spend a little bit of time in the kitchen, you should try to prepare some French toast for your weekend breakfast or brunch. Mix some milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon, soak the Pan Bagna slices in the mix and fry them in a pan until the slices are caramelised. A merveille!

To use the Panini bread for your sandwiches, don't forget they need to be warmed or grilled. Some ingredients should not be heated, so make sure to warm or grill the bread before filling it. You can also heat your Panini bread in the oven (not microwave) for 10 to 15 minutes to give it the color and crunchiness of the baguette.

We recommend our Wheat bread for healthy sandwiches. It can be kept for 2 days, and can also be used beyond that to make "panure" (bread crumbs).

Brownies and Muffins: Warm them in the microwave, but only for a few seconds. They are a nice treat for kids when they are back from school. They will enjoy their flavors and will be ready after this sweet stop to better study their lessons.

French Macarons: The perfect accompaniment to tea time with friends around a nice cup of flavored tea!

Pastries: None of them are meant to be warmed and for some of them it’s even forbidden! "Crème pâtissière" is sensible and warming it would be a disaster. We recommend to enjoy our fresh fine French pastries as they are on the day of delivery, but you can also enjoy them the day after by keeping them in your refrigerator. You can also add on the side a scoop of ice cream or your prefered homemade coulis or whipped cream, but nothing more please!

Quiches: They can be eaten cold, but if you prefer them warm, we strongly suggest not to use the microwave. Place the quiche for 10 minutes in your oven at 180°F and you will have one of Café Noir’s Best Sellers on your table to share with family and friends.
