Unbelievably Good

My wife and I decided to stop in for lunch while we were walking around Cambria. It's a quaint little shop with huge selection of pastries (no, they are not fat free) among other items. I ordered a turkey sandwich. I know what you are thinking because I thought the same thing. I've made turkey... read more

Fantastic range of cakes and pastries including many in the fridge cabinet like lemon cheesecake. Great blackberry and blueberry scones. Croissants weren't made with proper French pastry. Coffee was good. Baking was Latin/American, not French..

Myself and my partner came here for a quick bite as our motel didn't offer breakfast. We grabbed a cheese and ham croissant and a spinach pastry to go. Both were delicious, if a little expensive.

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!

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.

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.

A must, popular with locals, and great selections of pastries that those of you that like French pastries can appreciate. Situated on Main St. across from Chevron station. Love the lemon brioche. I have ordered cakes from them and they are delicious though if you are looking for a decorated cake- not here. Parking is minimal. A great place to... More
