Refund Policy

Note: This provider has a temporary cancellation policy for COVID-19 related cancellations which is as follows: 

Given the current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we unfortunately, will be canceling this weekend classes (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). We take the health the wellness of our employees and guests very seriously and despite our best efforts, this situation is too risky, especially in a food service environment. During classes we work in close quarters and having this many people at once, around food, and without being able to monitor each participant's condition (as we can with our staff), we feel it best to cancel these classes. 

We will be monitoring the situation closely and we are in the process of working on a solution for any and all people who are unable to attend the classes (cancelled, health related, and/or travel related). Unfortunately at this time we are still sorting out the details and will be offering future dates for those who need to reschedule. Free of charge of course. 

At this time rescheduling requests will not be taken, as we do not know nor can we predict how this will play out. But rest assured, we will have classes and space for everyone affected once things settle down. To reiterate, we are processing all cancelations free of charge, regardless of how much advance notice is given. We plan to have those who cancel sign up for future classes, however those dates are not yet set. 

I am maintaining a list of people to contact and offer the make up classes too, once the situation settles down and we can determine those dates. While we prefer to keep the booking and reschedule them later, for those who want full refunds, we are offering them as well. 


Original cancellation policy (non-COVID-19):

  • If you need to cancel or reschedule any class, a 100% refund will be given if the cancellation is asked prior to 7 days before the class. Please notify us by email: [email protected]
  • If you cancel any class within 7 days, without rescheduling, we will not provide any refunds. 
  • If you need to reschedule any class with less than 7 days notice, we will do our best to accommodate you, but there are no guarantees. Please note there is a $70 rescheduling fee per person paid directly to Mille-Feuille. Please email [email protected] for more information.
  • If you are a “no-show”, we will not provide any refunds.
  • In the event that Mille-Feuille cancels a class, 100% of the class cost and fees will be refunded.

Question from Anonymous
hi! what is the maximum number of folks available for this class? Could we perhaps do up to 15 folks if we book far enough in advance? thanks
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The maximum is 8 spots for each class. The absolute maximum number they can take is 12 students which are a tight squeeze and does slightly lower each individual's yield (i.e. instead of 24 macarons/person, a class of 12 would have 16 macarons/person). Hope this helps!
Question from Diane M.
Hello, I'd love to get this class as a gift for my husband because we love croissants and just went on our honeymoon in Paris a month ago. I'm just hesitating to order it because he has a nut allergy, as long as he is not touching or eating them it's fine if someone is cooking next to him using almonds, but what do you think? Thank you,Diane
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Diane! In this class, you will make plain, chocolate, and almond. The possibility of cross-contamination does exist, from their almond provider, within the school kitchen, and during the class. Any student is welcomed and allowed to skip a filling, however, you will work in tight quarters and the other students would be using almond.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Additionally, all croissants are placed into the oven and baked at the same time; albeit on separate trays. For severe allergies, the school usually err on the side of caution and do not recommend the risk.

We attended a croissant making class given by Vincent. This was awesome! He was very knowledgeable, patient and fun. I highly recommend this class. Unfortunately, Vincent is leaving for Paris, would have loved to taken another class with him. But I'm confident that if Mille-Feuille Bakery hired him, they know what they are doing. The croissants were delicious and we would do this again!

The class was fun and the entire staff was very hospitable. Chef Clemente was very knowledgeable and he shared some really nice tricks with us. I would definitely recommend this class for a fun time but to also hone in on baking skills. We all left with a huge bag of the most delicious croissants.
