This wonderful, small bakery reminds me of the ones we had in my childhood. Many spectacular pastries to choose from all prepared on the premises. I'm a sucker for their multi-layered Napoleon filled with yummy custard. The outdoor seating is peaceful and serene. I took a lady friend there and we both totally enjoyed the experience. I believe you will... More

Unfortunatly, I cannot say the same things today. The pastries ' quality has been declining steadily throughout the past years, since the bakery has changed owners; also the selections have reduced.... More

My daughter and grandson were treating me to a late breakfast at the Champagne French Bakery Café in Encinitas. You order at the counter and they bring your selections to your table.

This is a great place to stop for a cup of coffee and a special treat. The pastries can be a little pricey, but all good. Breakfast/brunch also wonderful and it's nice to sit outside in the large patio area and people watch. I've come here with friends, but mostly solo while running errands or need a little pick me...

Cakes are very good but expensive. (Paris by comparison is cheaper.) Cappuccino is only fair and weak.

This is a small but very warm and friendly New Encinitas bakery. If you like pastries, especial those made with lots of butter, you will love this place. The coffee is excellent, especially the latte's. Great place to sit outside and relax when the weather cooperates. This is So Cal, the weather is most always near perfect.

Love, love, love the yogurt granola parfait. The homemade granola was fabulous! They also had so many wonderful pastries and baked goods! Definitely worth a stop!
