For a nice coffee shop and bakery it ranks up among the better places. To be faithful, we didn't have lunch so I can't report on that but my wife and I had items from the bakery selection and it as all we remembered - super. Oh, the coffee is good as well. Seating is limited but there is some... More

Great selection of hot and cold sandwiches. The bakery also has a nice variety of freshly baked breads from which to choose.

I went with three others and had the dinner for four, which we shared. It cost $25 each and includes enough items to make anyone happy and well fed. Service is great and everything I have ever had there is a cut above most other restaurants.

Stopped in to get a sweet in the afternoon. The gal at the counter never greeted us even when we selected and paid, never mind as we oohed at the selection of somewhat pricey possibilities. The chocolate dipped biscotti was decent but not memorable.

The bakery is an absolute favorite of both the locals and visitors, and my personal favorite were the melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls. No better breakfast than these!

After leaving our crappy hotel in Cambria, we needed to eat something before we went to Hearst Castle. We googled a spot for some tasty pastries and found the French corner bakery. What a treat. After smelling the stagnant air in the Creekside Motel for a night, it was a pleasure to smell the wonderful smells

This place is too good. We wanted to try everything. What we did eat was delicious. They were kind enough to cut our purchases in half so we could share them. Very nice staff!

This little corner Bakery is fantastic from their Coffee to the Pastry and to the attitudes of the people who work there. I had the Cinnamon roll and it was light and melted in my mouth. Ask for them to heat it. My husband had the Chocolate Raspberry Cream Cake and we sat in the corner and moaned until the... More
