This is our favorite bakery in Monterey. The popular almond croissant was so yummy. Strawberry almond croissant and savory quiche were also really delicious! We will be back for more.

I had an egg and spinach croissant sandwich, and my son had the fruit parfait. Everything was fresh and delicious, and the staff courteous. This is one of our favorite places, and we will come again..
