GREAT coffee and everything on the menu is lights out. We've been going here whenever we're in the area and can honestly say the consistency of ambrosia these folks can churn out is uncanny. Order a sandwiche, soup, pancakes, whatever, you'll be glad you spent a little extra and ate here. Ambience is really characteristic of Encinitas area. Laid back,... More

My husband and I go to Saint Tropez often where we enjoy the coffee (raspberry chocolate), French toast, quiche, almond croissants and the various pastries (not all at the same time). Outdoor seating on a sunny day is the best way to enjoy this dining experience. If it's a cloudy day, we get our coffee and food to go. A... More

It's hard to improve on the food- fresh baked goods and quality ingredients, and no full kitchen but they make fresh pastries and great coffee- and they have a decent wine selection. Not inexpensive, and worth the extra dollar or two based on the quality. In the Summer,, there's great evening entertainment outside.

Our party had ham and cheese sandwich, pancakes, salad, chicken roll-up and French onion soup. We all thought the food was okay but didn't see it as anything outstanding. We didn't try any of the pastries (which looked scrumptious). The wait for food was slightly long but not excessive. Staff was friendly. Chairs a little uncomfortable. Tables crowded together. Not...

I come to St. Tropez on those sunny mild mornings and sit in the patio (located in the lumberyard in downtown Encinitas). The umbrella covered tables offer a relaxing venue to eat an omelet, or a quiche, and enjoy a cup of coffee. There is a fountain adjacent and people milling about town. The food is good (especially pastries), but... More

We had a very enjoyable breakfast. I had the hot oatmeal cereal with fresh strawberries. It was really delicious. My husband had an omelet with cheddar cheese and mushrooms - which came with potatoes, fruit and a baguette. He liked his food a lot too. We shared a short stack of buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup. We both liked them.... More

My sister and I had lunch at St Tropez. They had a wonderful selection of food under glass. It was hard to make a choice! The outside environment was both pleasant and comfortable, service was quick and friendly. We had a delicious meal!

Lots of choices of salads, sandwiches, soups, quiches and desserts. You order at the counter and then take a table inside or outdoors- on the porch in the shade or on the plaza in the sun. Meal was served quickly and food was delicious. A nice restful spot after hours of walking at the San Diego Botanic Garden, only 10... More
