Their cakes may look pretty to some people, but rather look dull to me. Ordered two different pieces - nothing to blame about, but nothing exciting about either. Taste not overly sweet, but not great or delicate either. Not disappointing, but their cakes are simply and extremely boring. Additionally the counter stuff was not well trained.. She couldn't answer any... More

Ever since we discovered this place, we come three or four ties a year when we apostasy at Pajaro Dunes in Watsonville. Their quiche is great. You can even order one to go. The pasteries are to die for. My soninlaw used to get the mini fruit tart. Now he orders the big one and eats the whole thing! My... More

Although we have lived on the Monterey Peninsula for many years this is the first time we ate a meal in the Cafe. My husband had a chicken sandwich that he really enjoyed, and I had the Croque Monsieur, heated, which was very tasty. There are so many selections there that you could have a different lunch there for many... More

Delicious pastries but not a lot else. Went for breakfast but only ended up with coffee and pastries. If that's what you're looking for, this is the right place. If you want more, consider a different option.

Beautiful presented cakes, and baked goods. Something for all tastes. Mouthwatering, hard to choose and definitely bad for the waist line. Great salads, soups and sandwiches. We had lunch at the Paris Bakery and were so happy to have found this gem. Whenever we are in Monterey this will be our first stop. It is nearby to the Aquarium and... More

For our wedding weekend, in order to make things easier for the bridal party, we place group orders for 2 breakfasts and 1 lunch so we can feed everyone. The pastries were amazing! Some of the best I've had. The service was really great as well in accommodating our request. Must return when we are in the area next time!

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.
