We were in Carmel over the 4th of July and we're feeling a little left out of the Holiday festivities. We went to Bechler and ordered a fabulous assortment of breads, charcuterie, PASTRY and sides and salads. They packaged it up nicely with all the condiments and plastic cutlery and we headed to the beach for our own picnic. IT... More

We only tried the chocolate covered macaroons, of which we are obsessed (is that correct English?) So, when we got to town and asked around, people said "Go to Bechlers!" The one thing they did get REALLY right is the balance between the heaviness and lightness of the macaroon itself. The BUMMER was that they used a really lame chocolate...totally... More

I am of mixed racial background. Part Pacific Islander with Japanese and German. Also was born in Berlin. I am very fussy about Cake and Pastry having been all over Europe. This Gem of a Bakery is as good as any Bakery I have experienced in Austria, Belgium, Germany or Switzerland. Everything fresh and of high quality unlike the Paris... More

If you want the best almond croissant in the world this is the place, one of the best places for sweets and pastries, we really like this place we come here at least twice a week.

The cappuccino we had was tasty, and the almond croissants were very delicious. The service was good even though it was very crowded the time and day we went. Overall, this would be a place to get some sweets again when we're back in Pacific Grove.

We live around the corner and eat here often. All of the desserts are top notch, moist and not over the top sweet. The coffee is French if you like that dark roast almost burnt taste. They have the best veggie crepes ever! There is also a beautiful view of the water on a clear day, love the indoor garden... More

Everytime we have been in this area, we visit Patisserie Bechler. The pastries are pure French--light, tasty, and flavorful. We ordered pastries and take away soups--potato, clam chowder, and carrot. We were astounded by the quality and tastes of them. In my opinion, Patisserie Bechler is the best bakery in the Monterey Peninsula and one of the best in the... More

"Fine French Pastry" is their harkening sign which brought us in. We looked at the case of pastries, and while we were skeptical after viewing, we decided to sit down and try their luncheon offering which got rave reviews. We sampled their onion quiche and chicken crepe, both with side salads which were underdressed and contained some past acceptable as... More

A bit away from the normal visitor locations, but worth the trip. Everything in the bakery is amazing, and the relaxed breakfast area is an undiscovered favorite. Great coffee!
