We were headed for another restaurant that was closed despite their posted hours. About a block away, we saw this busy bakery, checked it out of trip advisor and went in. All the pastries and quiches were lovely with a wide selections. It was quite reasonable. I'm told the coffee was good. The tables and chairs section is quite plain... More

Their chocolate croissants are to die for. The egg and ham quiche is tasty. A little bit more expensive than other bakeries, but we'll worth it. If you're ever in Monterey, CA it's a must visit.

Arrived in Monterey after a 2-hour drive from San Francisco. It was mid-morning around 9:30 am. Downtown Monterey was quiet because everyone was at Paris Bakery! Inside I was greeted by 4 glass cases filled with desserts, cream cakes, breakfast pastries, cookies, meringues, deli sandwiches. Behind the counter, a wall stacked high with golden loaves, baguettes, rolls, braided loaves, etc.... More

Everything I've eaten here has been great. But it's the quiche Lorraine and chocolate/almond croissant that keeps me coming back. Everything is fresh and made on site. You won't be disappointed.

Should I admit that my girl friends and I meet here every Tuesday after working out at our local gym??? The food here is that good! Paris Bakery has something for everyone. I usually have their veggie delight sandwich that is packed full of fresh veggies like carrots, jicama, beets, green beans, etc., on fresh baked bread. Something I am... More
