A hint of France in Cambria

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'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.

I don't like to post a negative experience, so in this case, I'm sharing an experience I had. It may have been unique, or I may have stopped by and interrupted a phone call, but it soured me to this place. I went in as we were about to leave after a visit to this charming town. As we were... More

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!
