Thought we were in heaven. So yummy. Everything was nice and fresh and the service was wonderful. Wish we had a bakery like Paris Bakery in our hometown.

We visited the Paris bakery in September 2014 for breakfast, as we were stopping at the nearby Abrego hotel on a room only basis. We were completely new to Monterey and were deciding on where to go for breakfast when we walked by the Paris Bakery. The place was packed, even though it was 8:30 on a Sunday morning, so... More

Got there early and enjoyed a peaceful breakfast. Food was fantastic and a perfect start for a day spent outdoors. We enjoyed our food so much that we came back for a take-away lunch. I'm from East Coast and really enjoyed getting up "early" to have the place to myself.

We just had a yummy breakfast at Paris bakery Cafe. It was quite delicious. 7 of us had a variety of croissants. They were all light, flaky and delicious. The ladies at the counter were polite and patient while we tried to make up our minds. Desserts looked great.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and had seen reviews so gave it a try and weren't disappointed. Good selection of tasty pastries for breakfast and at a good price. Was busy both mornings but tables were available both inside and outside, and the place seemed popular with locals and tourists alike.

Thankfully, as I'm an out-of-towner, I had a friend originally from Pacific Grove who recommended this bakery for breakfast, and it did not disappoint. Your choice of selections was almost limitless, and the locals clearly like it!

Me and my friends came there for breakfast while our short stay in Monterey. The food was so good, staff was really nice. They made me a special sandwich because I can't eat everything, they had so mamy items that it is hard to choose. We liked that they had youghurt and fresh fruit. Coffee was also very good.
