There is a buzz around the Marietta area. The buzz is about a particular restaurant that is sweeping the scenes and making everyone wish they lived a little bit closer to a certain European country.
In this post we are going to talk about the secretive jewel that is living north of Atlanta. We are going to talk about the Marietta French restaurant!
Marietta French Restaurant
For those of you that do now already know, there is a Marietta French restaurant that seems to constantly have a line out of the door and their tables full of customers. This spot is none other than the Douceur de France!
Douceur de France Marietta
The Douceur de France is a hard name to say for many locals, hence the reason simply refer to this place as the “Marietta French restaurant”. But, we highly recommend to remember the name because this place is quickly growing in the hearts and stomachs of locals.
Douceur De France is a local French authentic bakery that prides itself on serving the very best and freshest ingredients.
Many people come here to grab pastries for parties, sandwiches for lunch, or simply to sit down and have a delicious French styled meal.
You really can not go wrong with anything on the menu or behind the counter.
Since we have been priviledged to frequent this very spot, we have some menu favorites we would love to recommend to you.
Our absolute favorite thing on the menu has to be the Chicken Pot Pie. A classic French style take on this home comfort food, we are sure you will enjoy.
The second thing we found exquisite on the menu has to be the newly added “Grown-up Grilled Cheese“.
Made with flaky bread, brisket, and of course plenty of delectable cheese. Pair this with a cup of their tomato soup and you are sure to be in heaven.
Did you think we were not going to mention bakery favorites? Well you would be wrong, because we have a few to recommend.
The first is a classic. We have to get 5-10 Beignets every time we come. No matter if you are getting your food to-go or staying to dine, make sure to get a few of these to enjoy on the road or before your meal.
The next thing we suggest from the bakery is any of their desserts! We can not recommend a specific one, because there are simply too many desired treats behind that cabinet. We can say that the Crème Brûlée is absolutely divine though if we HAD to pick one.
The last thing we are going to let you know about this place, before the obvious stuff like location and hours, is that it has recently come under new management.
The previous owner was a French lady that did a wonderful job, but decided it was time to move on after decades of serving Marietta’s finest locals. Now, the new ownership has made it their priority to continue the legacy by giving the location a clean modern make over, adding new French inspired menu items, and continuing the bakery.
Since the new management took over in early 2022, we have dined at Douceur De France many times, and we can say with confidence that the place shines just as bright as before with new additions.
