We needed food for a picnic, and I couldn't find a grocery store in the downtown district. Better than do-it-yourself sammies was French Corner Bakery. We ordered a sandwich to share and a gorgeous spinach/feta pastry. Both were delicious. Service was friendly and moderately fast.

On our journey from Morro Bay to Big Sur we stopped off for breakfast. We had coffee croissant an blueberry muffins. They were ok but curiously lacking taste.

My husband needed a quick bite to tide him over and he bought the ham and cheese croissant - he really liked it and it was loaded with ham and cheese so a very good buy.

We go there and sit outside, and just watch people.... All different kinds. You will get a chuckle. Busy corner, careful parking.
