St. Tropez is an Encinitas standard with mostly outdoor seating. You have to order at the counter, but the food is solid.

I would highly recommend this delicious eatery. I enjoyed good beverages as well as delicious food...almost everything is good and worth trying. I prefer breakfast here but all options during the day work.

This self service restaurant offers table service once you have placed an order your meal will delivered to the table. There is plentiful seating indoors but also on the outdoor patio. Meal selections range from $7.95 to 10.95 on average and they also have a kids menu. They feature Crepes and Quiches, Salads, Wraps and Sandwiches as well as serving... More

On a typical Southern California day, St. Tropez can't be beat for casual patio dining. Whether you want coffee and an amazing selection of pastries, or a full breakfast or lunch, you won't be disappointed. You order at the counter indoors, then they deliver your order to your table. The staff is super friendly, and the food is consistently delicious.... More

Love this local bakery with French inspired food. I find them to be very consistent and good quality. Only downside are the people in the open courtyard who think its ok for their dog to sit on the table. I do come here a few times a year and when family/ friends are visiting.

Love, love this place. Great bistro for weekend breakfast [or any other time]. Small busy little shop but great outside seating. Employees are very friendly and attentive. Food is exceptional and French desserts and sweets are phenomenal. Not enough great words to say how much I love this restaurant.

If we are close we are stopping for breakfast. We usually make a trip to this area twice a year. So we eat breakfast here twice a year. You cannot go wrong with the croissant French toast or the Croque Madame with roasted potatoes on the side. The customer service is very good and the patio dining is very nice... More

We've had breakfast here a several times over the years. The food is good, not great but it's a lovely setting in the courtyard. I do want to commend Jonathan, who in the past few visits has taken care of us. His enthusiasm, graciousness and professionalism is a tribute to this neighborhood bistro. He is always helpful, cheerful and kind.... More

My husband and I wanted to get a bunch of desserts to try. Their selection was poor for a Friday afternoon. The service was friendly and helpful. We ended up getting $45 worth of pastries and not one item stood out to me. They were out of cheesecake slices and carrot cake slices. The chocolate eclairs were bland and tasted... More

Here is the scoop: Out of all the amazingly fabulous bakeries we have in Encinitas, this is the weakest link. Try Darshan just down the street, or try Elizabethan, or try the French Bakery next to Ralphs on El Camino Real. Those are all better than this one.
