Excellent Bakery and sandwich shop

Excellent bread and pastries. Lunch is very good also. Sometimes it is crowded and you have to wait, but it is worth the wait!

Fresh and DELICIOUS sandwiches, salads and bakery items. Fresh coffee and very good ice tea. We often call ahead to order for tailgates, beach picnics or just a delicious lunch at home. If you pop in to order or sit, depending upon the time of day there may be a short wait. That said, worth it!!!

Great (usually very busy) place to buy a morning pastry and coffee - they also seem to have sandwiches for lunch and a wide selection of dessert pastries. My favorite selection is usually the melted ham and cheese croissant sandwich, which comes to you fresh from the oven. Despite almost always being very busy, service is quick. you can eat... More

Skip it if you are wise! Bugs in the pastry case scared me off ! I usually give everyone a chance but multiple visits to various locations made me wary of this pretender . The Health Inspector needs to visit quick!,,,

We are from Australia and miss good coffee and a good sandwich. This place does the best baguettes and yummy treats. I am vegetarian and the salad rolls are amazingly fresh and filled with greens. Coffee is the best that we have found over here. There maybe lines but don't be put off, they disappear very quickly.

The almond and the raspberry croissants were so good, flaky buttery bites of heaven! It's a great place to stop on your way to the beach.

The pastries are all made fresh and are all amazing. The bread they offer is usually fresh and also fantastic. You must try their sandwiches. It is usually busy around 9:00 or 10:00 am on weekends , but slow early in the morning. I have never been unsatisfied after eating here.

Yummy treats and good sandwiches and salads. My friend and I shared a few different items to be able to try them out. The curry chicken salad was great as was the bread. Great coffee!

Gorgeous deli sanwiches and delicious pastries. Didn't try the coffee, but smelt good. Popped in for take away lunch on way to LAX, sat and ate a delicious picnic on Huntington Beach. Lovely end to great holiday.
