Delightful for a pasty and cup of coffee in a peaceful outdoor setting

If you like French-style bakeries, Pamplemousse is well worth a visit. My wife and I had breakfast there recently. Although the dessert-type pastries looked inviting, they were probably from the night before, so we stuck to the fresh-looking items. The danish with fruit filling was excellent... read more

In appearance, Pamplemousse cafe is the pluperfect Bay Area restaurant/cafe. The store is spotlessly clean and shiny. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The shelves of cakes and pastries look like they should be photographed for a magazine. The only problem is that the cakes--which is what we bought--weren't all that good. OK--they really looked good. Elegantly decorated, elegantly wrapped.... More

We have breakfast or lunch here every time we're in town, 24 times and counting. Tarts, pastries, macarons, sandwiches, lattes, and salads. In downtown RD City, sidewalk tables and inside, marble top tables. Mais oui!

We enjoyed dining outside at this restaurant in the charming historic district of Redwood City. Morning coffee and pastries excellent and the people who work there are very pleasant.

Three words... Macaroons, Macaroons, Macaroons!! Plus the Chicken Salad and Iced Tea. This is a great place to go as a couple, as a family, or with mom's groups.

I went here for lunch and got the salmon baguette. It was very good and came with mixed green side salad with herb dressing. Dressing was a bit creamy for my taste, but still good. They are also known for their macaroons, but I did not order one. Their Americano coffee was decent. Overall, I would go back, but a... More

Loved their coffee and their sandwiches. I recommed their vegetarian sandwich. It's a very nice lunch spot.

Flake croissants of almond, chocolate, or ham & cheese; brioche, Mille Feuille, macaroons, tarts, and other delectable french pastries, along with a steaming cup of coffee. A great sidewalk cafe right near the train station.

I go here fairly regularly to pick up half a dozen pastries for my staff. My trunk smells like a bakery by the time I get to work. These things vanish in minutes. My staff is completely addicted. It also serves up a very good latte with whatever milk preference you may have including soy. The service is always friendly... More

The moment we stepped in, we should have been warned. One of the ladies preparing a sandwich sneezed hard onto her arm... an arm hardly covers anyhting ... and promptly continued her food preparation ... gross!! I ordered a tart, which was so obviously heated up, its side crust was limp, the bottom crust was soggy, and the filling was... More
