"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!

I like to go here for last minute cakes. Everything is always beyond tasty. My main gripe is the last time I was in I didn't have any cash. Only my debit card and the Chef/owner? Was so rude and it made me feel unwelcomed. I have always enjoyed their cakes but, never again.

The croissants, especially the one with cream cheese filling are divine. The mini quiches are super yummy. One had sundried tomatoes and was scrumptious but the standard ham and cheese was yummy too. The thumbprint type cookies with fruit filling were also fabulous. And, the prices were fair. Definitely worth the visit!

Patisserie Bechler is a local favorite for the best in Alsace-Lorraine cuisine. It opened in 1984. Chef Bechler can thank the mother of his children for giving this place the warmth and feel of the area he calls his homeland in France, complete with a stork on the roof! I remember when the wall mural was being done to depict... More

Was visiting from Florida and saw this old shabby building with a B on, with a sign that read Bakery Open. Being a sort of world baked goods connoisseur I said even though building looks dumpy better check it out. To my amazement when inside this was the real deal even better than Paris and I am in Northern California.... More

On our last trip to Monterey Bay, we got a tip from some of the locals to try Patisserie Bechler. Fantastic! True bakeries with their own specialties are becoming more and more scarce. This bakery offers authentic French pastries for breakfast and a delicious lunch menu for the afternoon. If you are headed to Point Lobos or the Carmel Mission... More
