Great Pastries-Breakfast by the Fire

Great place to meet the locals over french coffee and pastries made fresh every day. A full breakfast is available and made to order while you wait by the fire pit outside. Delivered right to you with a smile. Just a few steps from the ocean so excercise is easy after.

My family had breakfast here two mornings in a row, as well as dessert while staying across the street at the Carlsbad Inn Beach Resort. The first morning, I ordered Coconut Custard Stuffed French toast and was disappointed to find out they were out of coconut. I got banana instead and it was absolutely delicious (coconut must be amazing!). I... More

We stopped in for a dessert to go on our way back to the hotel. We picked about 6 different pastries to share, but only spent about $8. That's a great deal. They were all yummy.

we enjoyed breakfast on the patio. Omelettes were delicious and the fruit was outstanding...no mushy melon and grapes!

Good food, but nothing special. Super convenient and tasty baked goods. There's much better coffee in multiple other locations throughout Carlsbad Village.

Had heard about this restaurant from others so we decided to give it a try. Easy to find, walk in read the overhead menu, order then go sit and wait. We picked a table outside as the sun was out but it was windy.................I ordered the ham quiche and found it very tasty and well presented. Hubby had a burger,... More
