We hungry travelers stopped in and devoured a scoop of sorbet, ham and cheese croissants and mini pizza. We drank the "house water" without encountering any stomach issues, too. All the food was amazingly fresh and spectacularly delicious.

I had some concerns about this place when I stopped by in early 2013. I Was so happy this 2014 visit to enjoy great food,, excellent pastries and friendly efficient service. The reason for the turn around is the enthusiastic hands on new owners. The bread and baked goods are fabulous. We ate 2 meals and a snack one day,... More

Stopped in this year (12th here in Cabo) and found a newly rejuvenated restaurant. New owner Jerry (from Brooklyn no less, via other places) very warm and welcoming. Fresh baguettes just like Paris. Crispy outside, soft and luscious inside. It didn't make it home as I ripped off pieces to eat with the great latte they make. Their pastries look... More

I had the the ham and cheese croissant with fresh fruit. It was very good, one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. I got some desserts to go which were wonderful. I would highly recommend this place

Along with another couple, my wife and I recently spent a week in Cabo San Lucas. In doing our pre trip research, we noticed a French bakery in San Jose del Cabo which is a 45 min bus ride from where we were staying. The website for the French Riviera Bakery looked as if it should be located in Paris... More

We went to French Riviera twice while in San Jose. Breakfast was our meal of choice and we were never disappointed. I fell in love with the Melba Crepes, which had chocolate, crushed hazelnuts and a scoop of their addictive vanilla on top. I am an advocate for that vanilla gelato. It's beyond delicious. The atmosphere, service and food make... More

Went for breakfast croissants which were outstanding. Indeed some of the best we have had. Excellent butter and crispy layers. We had seconds, including shared chocolate one. Good coffee which was refilled without request. New owner maintained staff, including pastry chefs, and renovated, renewed and upscaled everything else!

My husband and I come to this bakery for the baked goods. The croissants are out of this world! They're flaky, buttery goodness! The giant macaroons are coconut heaven in the mouth. We haven't had a pastry there that wasn't excellent. The prices reflect the quality of ingredients used in baking the pastries. To be fair, we haven't had a... More
