We stopped for a quick breakfast and had a hard time getting a table because there were so few. The food was worth standing in the crowded space and eatting outside. Great pastries!

Very delightful spot with a few tables. Loved the strong coffee & enjoyed my mozzarella sandwich & the apple turnover I shared with my husband. I thought his feta and spinach croissant was limp and greasy but he enjoyed it. Not really French - the macaroons, for example, are definitely Passover not Parisiene-) but nonetheless the baked goods were all... More

Excellent coffee and mouth-watering desserts! Leave your diet at the door, and enjoy!!! I had the pumpkin muffin and my hubby had pumpkin bread. Healthy and delicious!

Except for the croissants, there's nothing French here. I was hoping for some crusty rolls, typical of France, but they had only ciabatta and bolillo rolls. Disappointing :(

Stop in for a quick treat! Loved the bear claws. Our teens loved the mocha frapuchinos with swirls of chocolate! Nice local place for a morning or mid afternoon break. We always sit outside as it is a bit too warm inside. Service was friendly and excellent!!

I was disappointed when I walked in and noticed this wasn't a true French bakery but just an ordinary bakery in a small beach town. The German chocolate coconut cake was very yummy but really rich.

Great bakery goods but the REAL deal! Eclairs, Napoleons, Bear Claws! Croissants, you name it! You can eat inside or outside and you won't be disappointed! Cookies, rolls, turnovers..a bakery deserving the name French.

Love, love, love this place! Always stop here after our Moonstone beach walk before heading back to SLO to satisfy the mid afternoon "munchies" and order a dessert. Their pastry case is loaded with at least three dozen selections to choose from. It takes us forever to decide what to choose. They all look so delicious! So much variety and... More
