Had lunch here while exploring town...try the turkey and cranberry sandwich...it was excellent. Also the fresh mozzarella with pesto sandwich was a winner. The real stars are the desserts.....we took home several to share with our group. The cinnamon bread pudding and the red velvet cake were GREAT! Give this spot a try.

I've always enjoyed the pastries when we visit Cambria, so I ordered the cake for my daughter's wedding here. It was absolutely delicious & beautifully decorated, and I so appreciated that it was delivered & set-up at the Cambria Steakhouse for the reception. It's often difficult to plan such an event when you don't live there, but the Bakery &... More

Stopped her lunch. Very small but cute cafe. Fresh baked pastries & bread available for purchase. Nice but limited lunch/sandwich menu. Food was delicious! Little tables & chairs to sit outside & eat in the Ca sunshine.

Reviews on TripAdvisor caused us to stop in for coffee and pastry. I can't fathom the positive reviews. The coffee is definitely fine. The goodies are mediocre and the barista isn't familiar with any of the food at all (at least on a weekday in February). There have to be many better places in Cambria if you want anything other...

If you want to pretend you are back in Paris at a sidewalk,cafe, this is a place to do that. The pastries are so good! For a break from shopping or walking around or if you just want to take some goodies back to your room. You want it, they have it!! Places to sit inside and out. Not to... More

My wife and I have eaten at the French Corner Bakery 5 times over the past year. Each time we were given a prompt, friendly greeting. Their choice of pastries is large and never disappointing. Coffee, latte, hot chocolate, tea - whatever you choose. The place for breakfast in Cambria.

We stopped here for a couple lattes to go. The place is very small but the coffee is very good. Lots of good looking pastries but did not try them.

We stopped in for a quick lunch in Cambria on our way south doing the pch drive. It was the day before Thanksgiving so many things were closed. But the bakery was open and are we glad we went in. We had a chicken torta sandwich and an Italian meatball sandwich. Both were excellent. We also picked up a bear... More

Cambria is one of the few places left on earth without a Starbucks. Please, don't anyone tell them. This little bakery has great coffee and wonderful baked goods. You can sit out on the sidewalk and watch the world go by sipping on your medium (not Grande) latte and munching on a croissant.
