Lucettegrace is by far my favorite dessert and pastry shop in Raleigh. I have tried most things they have produced in the last year or so and all were incredibly delicious. Most recently I got their chocolate dessert #267 and I cannot wait to go...back and get it again. Their macarons are also amazing. While there desserts are really good my favorite item is the Nun’ya Biscuit. It is a cheddar and chive biscuit filled with sausage gravy. It ranks easily in the top 5 things I have ever eaten.More

If you're in need of a sweet fix, Lecettegrace is the place to go. I understand the owner-chef named it after his two children. I had a delicious cup of hot cocoa. Wonderful taste, not too thick. I took home a lemon tart ($7.75), a...cheesecake eclair ($7.75), a baklava croissant ($4.50), and a traditional croissant ($3.45). My wife and I shared all of them. They were all tasty, and the lemon tart with its cookie and the eclair topped with cherries were also beautiful to look at. Given their quality compared with poorly executed vaguely similar products at Whole Foods for roughly half the price, I wasn't too put off by the price. Service was friendly and helpful.More

Macarons are the best that I never tried. Tasty not too sweet, the perfect balance between the flavor and the sweetness. I tried all the flavors. And the French pastries was amazing. Just I bought a salad to go and I never find the dressing...?More

This place was great and I’m so glad I found it! I had the lemon tart, ham and cheese croissant, and some macaroons. The lemon tart was moist and sweet and not too sour. I also liked the warm ham and cheese croissant, perfect for...breakfast for a snack. I would say the macaroons could be better. I didn’t like the flavorings they had and the ones I ended up getting were not that good. Loved the atmosphere with the exposed brick and the place was following COVID 19 guidelines well.More

I ordered a variety of items to try: cornetto, croissant, mozzarella sandwich, and macarons. ALL were delicious!! Flaky croissants, sweet macarons, savory sandwich. I especially loved the cornetto filled with real vanilla bean custard/cream. You can smell the deliciousness from the street. Will return!

When I think of macarons, I want a chewy cookie with a flavorful filling. I don't mean to be so picky but with how expensive they are, I expect them to be done right. I used to get my favorite macarons from Amelie's in the...Charlotte area and was hoping these would fill their place here in Raleigh, but this was not the case. These were mostly air and overly sweet. The pistachio did not taste like pistachio AND the filling had split meaning the texture of the filling was all lumpy from not making it correctly and they still filled their cookies with this junk! The flavors weren't strong enough and they crumble when you bite into them. Some of the filling also leaks into the massive air space in the cookie leaving you with a thin shell with too much filling. Then, they put these fragile macarons in a paper bag of all things. They do offer a sturdy box with individual slots for the cookies, but this is an extra charge on top of your already expensive cookies. The box is shaped in a way that your cookies are nearly impossible to pick up without breaking them or having to tip the container to topple them out. If the macarons were tasty and not full of large air pockets, I could see beyond this annoyance, but they're not. I also tried a raspberry tart type thing with sponge wrapped around it. The sponge and pistachio brownie base were dry and not very tasty, so I wasn't very impressed having to pay $7 for it. Overall I don't think I'll be back, I wish I had tried one macaron first before buying a whole box of 8..More

This place is close to where we are staying and I love macaroons. We had to go in and get our share. They all were amazing and the staff is friendly. Very excited to walk past and notice the macaroons inside. My favorite was the...birthday cake flavor!More

My sister has a macaroon obsession so once I saw I was staying very close to what I fondly and inappropriately call Lettuce (my apologies) I had to go! Lucettegrace is a lovely, cozy place with a great cafeteria vibe. The pastries are lovely and...delicious. The sandwich though pre-made was still fresh and tasty. And I haven’t had a latte like this since London. Pricey though! But definitely worth it.More

Great place with good food. Great little stop during our visit. Great atmosphere and nice location. We walked from the museum so it's a quick walk from there. Hope to visit again soon.

Lucettegrace has never disappointed us whether we just stop in for macarons or if we sit down and eat wonderful pastries and beautiful desserts. If you pass by the place and they’re open, you must go. Freshly made wonderful-ness every day!

On the way to visiting family we stopped here to pick up some sweets. We purchased a large variety of pretty the pastries they had on display. The staff put them all in very pretty boxes. All the pastries are so fresh and tasty. I...also tried a cheese/ham croissants and it was delicious as well. They were a huge hit with the family. Even on the second day they still tasted amazing. The cafe was very clean, pleasant atmosphere, very nice staff and excellent customer service.More

We spent the day in Raleigh and although I was hoping Downtown had a plethora of things to do, it seemed underwhelming until Lucettegrace. This place was such a delight. We got the Taormina, the Lemon Meringue tart, along with a raspberry cheesecake Macaroon, yummy...yummy yummy! Thank you for being a part of our day, the highlight of our day!More

No longer do we have to go to big cities to get "big city" cuisine. Lucettegrace can hold its own with any bakery/cafe, anywhere. the variety if amazing. It's obvious that a lot of love has gone into putting together the menu. Your challenge will...be narrowing down your choices, because everything is a feast for the eyes, and tastes even better. Go just once and you will be hooked.More

A couple of friends and I went here for the delicious hot chocolate that we saw advertised on Instagram. It was a random week night, about an hour or so before they closed. The hot chocolate definitely lived up to the hype! The macaroons are...very good too. I'll definitely be back to try their other treats. They also have sandwiches and soups. Great space to hang out with friends.More
