Excellent pastries

I visited La Parisienne on a sunny morning and stayed in a long line to be served, usually a sign of high popularity. I was not disappointed: the croissants and pastries I tried were of excellent quality. The atmosphere is that of a small bakery, no grand decor, modest furniture, a bit cramped, but... read more

My husband had their sticky buns, palmiers, apple galette & berry tart and was disappointed in everything but the berry tart. I tasted the galette but it seemed to have an odd taste and didn't compare to the apple galette from Parker Lusseau Pastry Cafe in Monterey. The blueberry & strawberry tart was very tasty and we would buy it... More

Such as busy little joint with nice looking pastries and quiche. But the Devil's in the details. Terrible plastic seating very tacky and uncomfortable! Dingy walls in need of paint and some other decor besides dried up bread sculptures. Get rid of the dirty plastic tree and soda cases on the floor. We ordered breakfast croissants they were over toasted... More

Ehh. My brother loves the place. I found it quite ok. Don't get me wrong...it's fine for the area, but don't expect too much. That being said, it's fine for a quick meal. Just not like NYNY.

Stopped in for pastries! Delicious options. We stuck with pastries and a few cookies as we had already had breakfast. Next visit to Morro Bay I will be back to try the focisia bread, regular bread and possibly have breakfast/lunch.

My wife and I stopped here when we saw the french bakery sign. Once your have been to Europe, you are spoiled with regard to bakery. This place didn't disappoint. Definitely worth a stop for coffee and pastries.

This bakery had amazing options. The quiche is always good, but the croissants…over the top great. They are perfectly light and so full of flavor. We never miss a chance for a stop at this amazing bakery.

The croissants are as light as I've found in the typical corner coffee shop in it's namesake city. Unexpected. A remarkable find. If Michelin rated coffee shops, it would be rated three stars: "Worth the journey"!

The pastries looked good, but the espresso is horrible. They either need a new machine or better espresso beans or training... Something. That espresso was really bad.
