REVIEWS OF Nichole's Fine Pastry & Café IN North Dakota

Christina Mondry

They have an excellent variety of choices for treats (Oreo Mousse Dome is my favorite) as well as salads, Gelato, and more! Drinks are great as well! (Strawberry Italian Creme Soda pairs quite well with the OMD). They have decent pricing, too, and you definitely are paying for great quality. The staff are always really nice, to add to it. Highly recommended for a date or if you just want something different.

Tamara Aakre

Great atmosphere. Beautiful looking case of choices. Wonderful tasting, edible art! Fresh. Pricey but very good.

Gloria Hutson

One of my favorite spots, you really cannot pick the wrong dessert there. I love taking the kids to pick out something special when we are in the area

Brittany Saul

The cookies and creme mousse was amazing!

Jason Siebels

I have never once been disappointed in my visits here. Always something new and fantastic to try.

Nick Peterson

The place to go for dessert in Fargo. Head there after a meal and continue to eat too much. Great selection. Quit over baking your cookies! Other than that, excellent!

Jerred Hutmacher

The Fouillatine tower is amazing and it's very reasonably priced. It's worth stopping in for that alone.


Love the chocolate tower. We have it every time we come. They also serve dinner, although we haven't had it yet The place is cozy and welcoming.

Ma Kettle

My husband surprised me here. I am use to having pastries like this in Europe. I wish that she would be in every town in America. The place was clean and cosy and the pastries unbelievable so fricken delicious to die for. We will be coming back for sure. You have to go here when you are in Fargo.

Matt Turner

The chocolate pastries are delicious, the coffee on tap is good and there is plenty of seating!

Janet Jones

Love Nicole's!!!! Great desserts and the croissants are so delicious... I can't say enough.

Maxine Fagerland

Really great bakery items plus good soup and sandwiches

Jessica Hawkes

My husband and I have been avid patrons of Nichole's for years, which is why we went to them for our wedding cake - we were absolutely thrilled with the results!! The towering cake was delicious and gorgeous, and delivered promptly to our reception with no hassle at all. Absolutely, 100% recommended for any event!!

Martha Leidholm

What can you say about Nichole's! This place is wonderful. You have to see/experience it to believe it. All of Block 8 is unique and beautiful.

Connie Olson

Very small and dull looking. No LG full of frosting, nor was pretty. Very unfortunate since it was on Valenties Day!!!.$4.00 for a regular, plain cupcake to present to a loved one.

Barnacle Blake

Very good.

Sue larson

Has a chicken salad and coffee x2 was EXTREMELY OVER PRICED!! Food was good dessert was very yummy but cost $$$ was HIGH!!

Rik Cook

You swear you are smelling grandma's kitchen when you walk in the door. Try it! Close your eyes before you walk to your table. You cannot have just one favorite.

Susan Wells

Love this place! Excellent food & drinks. I just had a latte and an almond cream croissant and both were delicious

Dustin Ehrlin

So much verity it might take you a bit to figure out which ones to try. We went there for dessert and were impressed. The price isn't bad for what you are getting. Nice little place downtown with fine pastries you just don't find around here.

April S

Wonderful food, great service, nice atmosphere

Adam Arend

All home made, very tasty.

Carla Day

What a lovely place! We had dessert and coffee and everything was so tasty, with friendly service!

Joshua Slevin

Amazing, amazing!! Everything is great! I have had great desserts from around the US, but these are a notch above. A true gem in Fargo!

Kayla Branam

Nichole's Bakery did the desserts for our wedding. They were reasonably priced and Nichole was a pleasure to work with. Our desserts were beautiful and tasted great. We received many compliments from our guests that this was the best wedding cake they had ever had. We would happily return to Nichole's Bakery for future dessert needs.

Keith Stebleton

Skip the decisions and just order one of everything, it's all fantastic.

Krishna Kundu

Loved the dessert!

Andrew Reid

Coffee is great,atmosphere is fun, and the bakery is perfect. Just being in there makes you feel classy.

Absolute Zero

The best!

shah habib

I’m a regular customer at nichole’s. Love their desserts specially creme brûlée. Love their variations. Today was very disappointing as the brûlée was poorly heated with soggy top crust not breaking with the spoon and the consistency of the dessert was almost runny. It felt like not a recent preparation and totally unexpected from a pastry shop of their stature. I think management should be cautious enough to prevent any further sub par food presentation in the future to their loyal customers.

def rabbit

Great pastry shop, disorganized chaos for the wait to try old recipes created in modern delight. ( Two rated star till the clean up their act. Get another till to help out you revenue ) please

cindyanddan montzingo

Delicious! Coffee and treats were awesome. Lives up to it's billing on Yelp as the best in ND.

Shelley Wilson

One of my fave Fargo stops. Food yummy and different and bakery fabulous!!! Nice funky atmosphere.

Andrew Mara

The beating pastry heart of Fargo. Try this place first to set your baseline, and then try other places to try to beat what you get here. I'm betting you a flaky scone you cannot.

Michael Heltemes

Love this place. I've been here numerous times. Sandwiches are awesome but the pastries are beyond amazing. I enjoy having business meetings here it's fairly quiet and a very relaxed atmosphere.

Jaclyn Worley

Sweet people sweeter treats!!!!

Spencer Huebner

No place else like this in Fargo. Everywhere else is a bakery. Everything this shop makes is as beautiful as it is delicious. I can honestly say I've never been disappoint by anything I've had here Rivals the French patisseries I loved in New Orleans when I lived there. Lovely space that's great for meetings and get togethers, with a large selection of loose-leaf teas and wine

saleh alkhalifa

Quite place with a very good variety of desert and subs.

Alan Helgeson

A recent stop here provides a glimpse into an art gallery-for desserts! The counter and cases are brimming with sweetness as if they are to explode. The only solution is to buy many things and enjoy the edible masterpieces. All silliness aside, I enjoyed a slice of three layer coconut cake and my wife had the key lime pie. Both were delicious and exceeded our expectations. When your visit, you will have a hard time making a choice but any you choose will be worth it

Azurus Blue

Excellent local restaurant and bakery. Has vegan and gluten free options which change daily. For most accurate menu information call them. Ingenious flavor combinations with the types of cakes, chocolates and gelato/sorbetto to impress. Wonderful experience.

Shannon Berns

Amazing food and treats. A true fargo gem!

cat gamer

Nichole's Fine Pastry & Cafe was recommended to me by a friend who grew up with authentic French pastries. When I want to celebrate an occasion or treat someone, I come here. The Key Lime pie is sublime. The best I've ever had easily. If you're lucky enough to go when fruit tarts are in season, they are perfect and beautiful. I'm also a fan of the red velvet cake which resembles a cheese cake due to the dense cream cheese frosting. (Not everyone's preference)

Meghan Battest

A must stop if you're in Fargo! One of my favorite places to sit and have brunch (10/10 recommend the egg bake) and coffee and a scone and a dessert ;) It's just off of Main Ave, so it's quiet and feels like a hidden gem, but it's always busy with locals. I've never had lunch there but I've heard that's fabulous as well. You'll feel like you stepped into a European dessert shop. Love Nichole's!

Dark Boi

This is some good food

Tony Ambrose

Everything in the store with one minor but tasty exception (clearly labeled) is made from scratch in-house. Simply unmatched in quality, presentation, and taste. You will not regret a trip to this shop. Bring your willpower though if you're on a diet or on a budget.


A very good place to go get higher-end baked goods. My only suggestion would be that it bigger emphasis is put towards rotating in more variety. It's not to say that the bulk of what they make needs to be changed, but more so the fact that there is so much more out there in this very delicious world.

Jodi Middendorf

This place has the best desserts in town. Usually I would recommend something but here I truly don't think you can go wrong. Try them all! The coffee is also wonderful.

Shane Mercer

So good.

Angie Koebler

Top notch pastries and gelato. Don't miss it!

Tiffany Brandon

Amazing quiche and lemonade, cute atmosphere, and lovely staff!!

Casey Fevig

Excellent creme brulee. Excellent coffee. One of my favorite places to visit in Fargo.

Stephen Baird

Nichole's serves a variety of classic desserts and coffees as well as sandwiches, soups, and gelatos. Their precise dessert menu varies weekly, and there's really no bad choice. Be warned that their desserts are quite sweet, but so well executed you won't mind a bit, especially with a double espresso to cut through the sugar.

Laura Richards

Always great!

Leanna Syverson

Visited this elegant beautiful place this morning.I absolutely loved it.the lady that helped me was great always had smile on her face.the food and deserts are amazing!put together very well. ill be back for sure!

Bernadette Lies

Good coffee, yummy bars, desserts.

Jacob Backen

Great lemon squares they we're quick to come and help me and take my order

Molly House

This is the best place in town for sweets, breakfast, you name it!

Lisa Wourms

I love walking over and grabbing a quick and unique lunch! Everything is delicious!

Eric Thorsell

Excellent coffee, deserts, salads and everything I've tried. You can't possibly go wrong here

John Fouberg

Best tiramisu of my life, I can't recommend this place though. It's the best bakery in town!

Tim W

Absolutely love the desserts!! Very nice staff!!

Cassie McEwen

They did a bad job on my cupcakes once, but I will always support them and eat here. It is delicious consistently otherwise. The best fruit tarts when in season and the croissants are better than when I was in Italy!


The problem with Fargo nice us that we support local business, at all costs. In this case..... a fine pastry shop that sells bland cupcakes and cookies. Yes there are a few items worth returning for, but the price point is super high. Overall, meh.

Ellie Akola

I mostly go here for the tea. Roasted chestnut is awesome! I have eaten here once and had a vegan salad which was fine. This is the home of the NPR truffles which are extraordinary!

Matthew Gantz

No WIFI - talk to your friends!? Crazy concept here. Nichole's always has great pastries, ice cream, and coffee. If you're looking to end a night out with something sweet, definitely come here.

Wyatt Hanson

Haven't had a pastry I didn't like here.

Jennifer Lawrence

Great pastry..very helpful staff

Nancy Jordheim

The treats are so good here you want to live in the backroom. The lunch menu is also awesome, but take the treats first??

Carolina C

This is one of my favorite places in fargo, I love THE CHESECAKE AND CREME BRULEE, TIRAMISU IS ALSO GOOD, the only bad thing about this place is that they do not offer salty plates, or more normal salty foods, like a normal sandwich, or some salads, something like a wrap or things ready to eat, cause I usually come for dessert but I would grab something easier if I ever want to eat something salty, They should over some kind of sandwiches, fresh salads packet, or something like that.

Abigail Kruempel

Never had a dessert here that disappointed me. Perfectly portioned lunches that leave just enough room for a fruit tart or piece of chocolate ganache cake!

Joe Burgum

Nichole's is a one of a kind local shop. Whether you are stopping in for coffee or tea, and a chocolate croissant. To pick up a cake for that special occasion or stopping by for a delicious dinner. You can't go wrong stopping by Nicholes for lunch, dinner, a treat to go, or dessert at home.

Chris Solberg

I'm not afraid to admit I liked it. -manly man

Nicolle Richter

Nichole takes such pride in putting out amazing pastries and it is well worth your time to come here and try ... well, anything! Amazing!

Cynthia Gray

Best pastries in the Fargo Moorhead area, and great lunches. We got our Christmas cookie and bar tray here again this year, and it saved a lot of time and stress, as we didn't feel pressure to do a bunch of baking. Nice variety.

Curtis James Sullivan

This place is lovely for accessing a variety of tasty treats that require some skill to make yourself, but I have not been amazed by this place since the first visit. The menu seems overpriced for the quality of the products they serve. The baked goods are, unfortunately, the best in town and they know it... But the competition is not stiff.

Lisa Kasson-Bauer

Great food and atmosphere.

Erin Schmidt

Fantastic artisan food and drink. The hours vary so I always double check before going. I will skip dessert at a restaurant across town just to come here!

Dave Lund

If you are looking for a unique place in Fargo, go here. They have lots of desserts made with fresh, real ingredients. I recommend the creme brulee.

Marshall Sonsteby

Wow! From lunch to dessert, this place delivers both consistently high quality as well as insanely delicious food. Can't go wrong stopping in for a sandwich or a pastry.

Kristen Anderson

Great service and a great variety of one of a kind desserts. Best dessert place is Fargo

Todd Braun

The highest - end dessert place in town and is one of my favorites to stop at after dinner downtown (on the days they are open late).

Rachel Lense

Sweet treats and savory eats in a charming little spot down 8th Street. One of my favorite places downtown.

Steven Glass

Really LOVEEEEE the lemon tart. The feuilletine is also good, but, the lemon tart, though.... really recommend it for visitors to the area looking to try some delicious treats!

Sredna Kunowski

The pastries and chocolate mousse are very good here. But I wouldn't reccomended ordering a birthday cake here. The butter cream frosting tasted like butter and we couldn't even eat it. Nobody wants a slice of cake with a thick slab of butter over the top, they should improve their frosting recipe. Also when I ordered a cappuccino, I burnt my tongue trying to taste it after five minutes of cooling down, and I didn't have time to wait 20min or so for it to become drinkable. So I would reccomend ordering the hot drinks at the start of your meal so they will be drinkable at the end. Otherwise they should just not make the drinks so unbearably hot.

Darla Lewandowski

Decadent, perfect cake texture, well-balanced sweetnes in the frosting, creative and fun combinations to try out. Best bakery in Fargo/Moorhead hands down.

Stephanie Mondragon

All I’m going to say is twice baked almond croissants! Everything else is delicious, but that croissant and almond spread goodness is just to die for and deserves to be promoted more.

J Eliassen

Nicholes, always great, never disappointing.

Shannay Witte

Sweetest place in Fargo. Put it on your "must do" list. Every fancy pastery and dessert you could ask far, all done to perfection.

Megan Widmer

Probably my favorite place to get lunch, delicious gourmet food and pastries

Peter Angadi

Homemade cake feeling! Super tasty pastry!

Lillian Mulder

I had their quiche and as always it was delicious. I really enjoyed their coffee as well! Great service and great food! This is a very charming and quaint setting.

Justin Tuchek

Awesome place for desert and coffee after a dinner date! Menu rotates, so have to check their website.

Rono Bloom

Best place in fargo for pastries

Travis Rosenbluth

Best pastry in North Dakota hands down.

Joshua Geinert

Always a pleasure to come here! Best pastries in town and their lunch counter has sophisticated, yet approachable flavor combinations! A step above the competition!

Brian Smart

Absolutely fantastic espresso drinks and pastries. Also have a nice selection of sandwiches and salads. Highly recommend stopping by for a bite to eat and a cappuccino!

Heather Bates

As always, great and interesting food selection and the desserts are out of this world!

Dylan Furst

No amount of delicious food can overcome a less than desirable staff. I was excited to go here with my wife and enjoy the treats everyone in town raves about, but despite my high hopes, I was not impressed. While the food fit the bill, the staff was pompous and rude to both myself and my wife. For the amount I paid, I expected top notch service. However I've found I get better service when buying an Apple Pie at McDonald's.

Neil Hoefs

This Oreo mousse dome was very tasty. Took care of my craving.

K Fleming

Very nice atmosphere, great coffee and pastries; friendly staff.

Alan Thomas

The pastries are great, at shockingly low prices for the quality.

Julie R. Neidlinger

Love this place. Great selection of desserts and lunch. Beautiful presentation of pastries, and a welcome change from a typical bakery.

Dihua Xue

Really love this place! Great dessert place! Fresh and yummy!

Jezzer Jorgenson

Delicious food and kind staff.

Britt Ingersoll

Everything is devine. Favorite sour cream radon bars and key lime cheesecake

Larry Tomten

Another visit with excellent food, drink and service!

Jerry Standifer

Love Nicole's! Great service, great environment, and amazing food! Wish I was downtown more often to visit!

Krysta Potter

Delectable desserts and atmosphere. Only the finest at Nichole's!

Kari Bryant

I needed a gluten free apple pie for Thanksgiving. I emailed Nichole and she was able to make one special order for me. It was delicious. Thank you Nichole!

neha kashyap

Probably the best confectioners in town. I Love their coffee too.

John Jorgensen

Nichole's is a Fargo treasure. Every great city has a great pastry shop, and Nichole's is world-class.

Jana Loewen

The sorbet and service was awesome. Was great to meet Nichole.

Anne Johnson

Fargo's hidden gem! They have a huge space, that is open late. It was a nice surprise to grab some dessert after we went out to eat! Their selection was awesome and I learned they also had sandwiches during the lunch hour. Worth checking out- you won't be disappointed!

Derek W

I've never ordered entre' style food, but my family has had desserts and treats a handful of times. Portions are huge and TASTY and staff is super polite! We love this place.

Michael Sanders

Croissant was unbelievable! Hot chocolate was ok. Really need some gluten free options.

Nazli Aras

Best place in Fargo to get pastries. French style cookies and cakes ! Very addicting

Linda Norland

Best cafe in Fargo for a nice sit-down meal and chat. Their pastries are divine and they have an excellent selection of coffee and tea. Lunch offerings are equally superb. Can get busy at lunch hour and they are closed Sunday and Monday.

Erica Cahoon

Love the food here. Very unique.

Jessica Nelson

I'm so glad I have a reason to eat more goodies from Nichole's! My fiancé's barber just moved down the street so now whenever he gets a haircut he also picks up a treat for each of us. Last night he had cheesecake and I had a fruit tart. Delicious!

Marvin Leach

I was not there. Stop these stupid messages please.

James Walsh

Nichole's is the best spot for desserts in Fargo. There's so much to love, but if you're into chocolate, the feuilletine is the best. The seasonal fruit tart is also a real treat. The sandwiches and salads are also excellent. I have never had a bad item there. If you get there early you might even get a warm chocolate croissant. The only problem I have is that sometimes it's not open when I get a craving, but that makes it all the better when I do get there.

Marcia Myers

Best place ever for lunch, dinner weekends & desserts. The greatest sweet treats anywhere!

Carolyn S

I love this place. Awesome atmosphere and divine desserts!

Annie Wood

You can't go wrong with anything here. I love their lunches and, of course, treating myself to amazing dessert! Also a great place for coffee/tea dates.


We shared the creme brulee. It was fantastic! I've had the espresso and didn't like it at all but my only point of comparison is the espressos I've had in small cafes in Paris. Aside from that, everything I've had here has been top notch.

Brainiac Dancer

Decadent food, perfect portions. Ladies were patient (I took a long time to decide what to order because everything looked so pretty in the display cases) and detail-oriented. Lots of sitting areas. Drinks and desserts on one side, lunch salads/wraps on other side. From L to R: Pork Belly Egg Slice, Italian Cream Soda with Whipped Cream and Pineapple Syrup, Chocolate Mousse Cake.

Kelly James Merit

I was treating myself for lunch. My first time here, the employees were friendly and very helpful helping me pick what to get.The atmosphere was quaint. I will defiantly go back ☺️

Joe Fuchs

Products look good as usual. Counter service was inefficient and not well staffed, resulting in a long wait. By the time I got through it had built to about 15 people in the line.

Kinsley Martens

Love the food here

Sarah Nell

Everything is AMAZING here! We love to grab a pot of tea (awesome loose leaf selection) and a dessert! I hope this place never closes!

Ritika Sahni

Perfect dessert everytime.. yet, my favorite is French macarons, creme brulee, almond pistachio biscotti, quiche, salads, gelato, and fruit tart.

Daniel Clayton Lindsey

This place is not simply just a date night destination. If you want outstanding food - to include dessert - then Nicole's should be on your Fargo short list of dining destinations.


Oh, sticky bun, I missed you. With dozens of places selling caramel rolls and none heeding my pleas to create the chewy, sticky, pecan-coated version I missed so much, Nicole's nailed it. And they're even better than the ones I used to get in New York. Only thing is, they're not always available, so call ahead.

Pamela Gruchalla

Very nice place. Very busy place you have to wait for awhile before being waited on.

Dennis Stillings

That anyone—particularly in Fargo—would give Nichole's less than a 5-star review brings to mind Friedrich Nietzsche's dictum that some people shouldn't be allowed to praise Mozart. In simpler terms, Nichole's is a world-class patisserie for which the people of Fargo should give thanks and an unreserved 5 stars. I have noticed a few comments re service at Nichole’s. We have eaten there in well in excess of a hundred times. We have experienced confusion over orders maybe 5 times; there have been times when the staff has been plainly under stress with a flood of customers; but I cannot recall a single example of brusqueness or rudeness.

Nikki Hunt

The lemon curd is delightful!

Christina Sticka-Jacobs

I always like this place, but was not happy with the coffee this time. I went at noon and the coffee was slushy and luke warm.

Clay Willoughby

A little pricey, but everything is delicious!

Marcus Penn

Simply the best place to eat and snack

Lisa Eggert

I can't believe I hadn't known about this place sooner! Wow! The food will blow your mind! I had egg bake and pumpkin bar. Phenomenal! I highly recommend!

Daryl Brahos

This I should a very nice local shop. The pastries are out of this world. A little expensive but worth it. They also do a lot for the community of Fargo.

Colin O'Connor

Nicole's is one of the best place in Fargo to get desserts. They have a wide rotating variety of things to choose from in addition to a nice selection of coffee drinks.

Yann Mulonda

Fun place, great food. Especially their croissants!

Megan's Phone

A couple days ago i had a key lime cheesecake dessert and it was just to die for. It was delicious to be honest it was the best thing I have ever tasted. I'm thinking of going there from now on instead of going to other pastry stores. The experience was just amazing I have never seen anything like it.

Karen Hutcheson

Friendly staff great food.

James Bergman

Nicole's is an absolute Fargo must. We are so lucky to have a place like this in our town. Their environmentally responsible practices are a great example of why we are thankful for local businesses like this. Keep on being awesome.

Barbara Garcia Vasquez

Visiting from El Paso, TX, and the tiramisu was excellent!

Andrew Rosen

Nichole's is a great place to grab lunch, dessert and/or coffee. All of the food, desserts, and pastries are amazing. I always try to get something new when I go because things you think you would never like, due to them looking too rich, will just blow your mind. They do such a great job at balancing flavors. I highly recommend any of there dome desserts. You should also pick up a couple of their dark chocolate truffles that are made in house. Their soups are fantastic and are different every day. The only down side is Nichole's is a little pricey to go to often, but if you are looking to entertain someone this should be one of your top go to places,

Amber Bouret

The best bread, baked good and confections in all of North Dakota! I drive out of my way to stop each time I'm near Fargo.

Kimberly L

I'm right along with the crowd on this one - spectacular sweets and pastries. Also very tasty soups, sandwiches, salads and breakfast items. If you're craving chocolate I recommend the Chocolate Feuilletine Cake - they have little ones in the pastry case that look like a single serving, but 3 or 4 chocoholics can get their fix by splitting just one, they are that rich. Just a warning that it's not cheap; quality really does cost more, but it is so worth it.

Bill Patterson

Wow, Coffee tastes great, filled with love, and comes with a punch! Now, the pastries, yes tge pastries are a must. Done right, and everything you try melts in your mouth, and fills the heart

Jennyfer Ferreira

The best dessert ever

Gerald Boyd

Pasteries were really good but do not European level espresso!!!

Shelley Steva

I come here 4 times per year after my Dr's appt. The food is good. Many others seem to enjoy it as much as me.highly recommended.

Andreas Ober

Always a treat to visit Nicole's

L Cullen

They were very accommodating on my needs off their catering menu! The food looks beautiful and tastes amazing. The staff was friendly efficient and helpful. Thank you Nichole's Fine Pastry!

Keely Harvey

'Yum' its a short word but its the best one to describe this place.
