Nice place for a nice mid-afternoon snack.

A wonderful almond croissant with a latte hit the spot in the hard to find but worth establishment. It is behind the Denny's and parking may be a little struggle.

Everything we've had here from croissants to sandwiches to fine French pastries have been absolutely consistently outstanding....There are about 4 patisseries on the Monterey Peninsula that would be home runs in NY or San Fran...anywhere...and this quality of food would be successes anywhere.

Parker-Lusseau has the best pastry I have ever eaten. They also make sandwiches, quiche and fabulous long loaves of bread.

The staff always remembers you and what your favorite drink or dessert... More

My wife and I stopped here one morning to grab some pastries and coffee to go. The pastries at this place... More

Come for Pastries, coffee, cake, delicious soup, handcrafted chocoloates. Everything is spectacularly well executed, and this branch is super cute to boot.

The pastries-such as the fabulous almond croissant- are known to be excellent but the sandwiches and drinks are divine also. My husband said he'd never had such bread before: crisp outside and moist within. He felt he'd gone to a French heaven and he is hooked!
