Croissants to die for

You don't have to go to France to have a great Croissant. The baguettes are wonderful (Asiago cheese is fabulous). The bear claws are great.. but my favorite thing is their Croissants!!

Great breakfast pastries, reasonably priced. Sandwiches also good, but heavy on condiments, which made a to go sandwich very soggy.

Very nice little bakery! Bought a sandwich to share (it was big enough!), along with a cannoli (so good!), and a custard-filled long john. Well, maybe a couple cookies, too! Everything was very good - so glad we stopped in!

While shopping in Cambria, we came upon this little bakery. They had fresh, very tasty sandwiches and lots of homemade sweets. It was a perfect little lunch spot.

Seating is limited but there is some... More
