The Creme Puffs are “To Live For”!!
Dec 2020 • Solo
So elated to find this place still open with the COVID situation. I’ve been craving an authentic Creme Puff for several months and hard to find so it was the perfect compliment to my afternoon exploring Carlsbad. And they had outdoor tables set up to enjoy the Deliscious-ness. I was pleasantly surprised to not only have it filled with real whipped cream but also vanilla custard. YUM!! 😋

Wanted some crepes and found this place on TA. Homey, nice selection, fresh and hot, good service. Portions are enough to share. Crepes are 2 good sized per order.

Fresh, authentic French experience
Sep 2019
Being guilty of a phase-type personality, I was implored to give this unassuming hidden gem a try after a recent trip to Paris. Being a Holiday weekend, the cafe was bustling with guests both sitting down for lunch service and ordering pastries for take-out from the counter. Opinions may differ, but I was thoroughly satisfied with the separation of counter service against table service. For an unexpectedly modest price, our table was served the croque madamme, Gran Marnier crepe, and French toast. In an instant, I was transported back to Paris - save for the homestyle potatoes, which were a fantastic, hearty American touch. The owner/manager (?) was a smiling, friendly Frenchman who ensured that we had superior service and excellent food. We took a baguette and pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) to-go, but it didn't last the car ride home.

Everyone who works at this longtime Carlsbad gem is terrific. The food is really good, and you can eat in if you choose. We like to get some of the excellent pastries to go- either as hostess/housewarming presents or for our own indulgent treats. You can get whole tarts , or simply smaller “tasting” sizes if you wanted to sample multiple types.

WOW! You have to try their pastries!! What a little gem, located in Carlsbad Village shopping mall. We found it online, went for lunch, had amazing food, beautifully prepared. They are open for breakfast and lunch only. THE PASTRIES are wonderful! Eat in or take out!! Indoor and outdoor seating available.

If you love meringue and chocolate then for Godsake get the meringue dipped in chocolate. If you are a Florentine cookie fan then you must buy the rolled Florentine cookies stuffed with a light creamy custard. There is only one other place I know to get incredibleTiramisu, and that is Livreri's in Palm Springs, (Grand Mama passed and so did the recipe). No so anymore, French Pastry Cafe has made an outstanding out of this world tiramisu. Uh oh now I've gone and done it... road trip to Carlsbad! Come along for the ride and get ready for a little bit of heaven!

Eat in, take away for later
Oct 2018 • Couples
The menu isn't extensive but what they do, they do well. The omelette and the breakfast croissant were great - great tasting, great value. Now I wish I had tried some of their sweet breakfast offerings!The coffee is worth going out of your way for! And it is impossible to leave the cafe without taking a little something home for later. Mmmmm ... every single thing that we tried is worth recommending! Just don't miss out!

Love this place. Unassuming little shop next to super market. Terrific choice of sweet and savoury breakfast. Can thoroughly recommend the Savoury Crepe and damned near anything from the pastry counter. Friendly attentive service.
