Stopped here for breakfast. We had a chocolate croissant and cinnamon roll with coffee. DELICIOUS! Looks like a lot of locals come here as well. That is always a good sign. Not a lot of seating but we were able to find a table.

Coffee was served lukewarm and pastry was ordinary. I was so disappointed as I wanted the real "French Bakery" experience

A small neighborhood type of cafe/bakery with seating. Lot of different types of pastries, but wouldn't go so far as to call it a French bakery, having been to Paris several times. Cozy and comfortable to have coffee or breakfast in the morning or a break in the afternoon.

we visited Robin's Restaurant in Cambria and had a lovely piece of Carrot Cake which they told us came from this bakery. Sorry we did not have more time to check it out.

The desserts are out of bounds with flavor and textures. This was our second time going there and not disappointed with what we have gotten there. We will go back every time we are in town.

Limited seating inside, but cozy and warm. We shared a turkey and cranberry sandwich which was served warm with crisp, cold greens inside and lightly dressed with cranberry sauce. The perfect holiday sandwich! We also purchased the Bear Claw and Chocolate Croissant which were both delicious and very fresh. It was a perfect small-town lunch stop within walking distance to...
