Knows pastry

Stopped in here one morning on our drive up Hwy 1 and took pastries to go. Wonderful selection. coffee was good. Husband got a scone and I got a bear claw. Each pastry was light and just right!

Great coffee, Pastries that you must have. Courteous, fun people helping us to buy more than we really should. Great way to start the day in Cambria.

We were getting ready to return home and decided to grab a light lunch here. We split a tuna sandwich, very good! Service was good.

Great feta/spinach/tomato croissants, scones, & snickerdoodle cookies. They also had fresh baked breads.

Certainly the best we've had in a very long time - great flavor and crispness - and home made right there at the bakery! We really enjoyed the mini red velvet cake, too - one of the best of those, too. A ton of cake, cookie, croissant etc options. We did not have coffee. Seats outside, but not the most... More

The only thing that I can comment on was the coffe which was good. Refills were just 50 cents and they let you switch from a regular cup to a to go cup when you leave. All the food looked good. Another thing that I liked was that they opened early.

I've seen a lot of great reviews on this place but it didn't have a lot of options like I would have expected. It's fine for a coffee and a quick snack but that's about it.

Great place for fresh baked goods. We always order a cappuccino and a fresh concha. Also, check out the day old goodies; they are still worthy.

Super bakery with excellent cappuccinos! Best cappuccino I've had in a long time. We also tried some baked goods and they were nice. Sat inside for a while and enjoyed the scenery. Staff is always busy, not overly gregarious, and nice enough.
