Everything they serve here is amazingly delicious, from the croissants, to the quiche, to the tarts, to the coffee, to the macarons. I am a bit picky when it comes to pastries and there is nothing to complain about here; the pastries are flakey, buttery, and stuffed with filling. I found the almond croissants to be especially noteworthy; they were... More

Stopped in on a whim. Cute little shop in historic building. We had strawberry cake and macaroons. They were delicious. The cake was light, with a fantastic filling. The macaroons are a big seller here, with good reason. Tasty and affordable. They offered a light menu and their soups smelled delicious. Will have to go back to try them out.... More

I just noticed I forgot to submit this review for a visit last year April. This bakery is GREAT!

Love the individual cakes, worth the price and trip to Monterey. I always rave to family and friends about this place when I hear they are traveling to Monterey.

The desserts are awesome, and you can pick up a great lunch item as well (a mini quiche, kale salad, etc.). Terrific place!

Cannot say enough about the pastries, croissants and other goodies. My only gripe was that my cup of coffee could have been a bit stronger, but that could be my personal preference. So glad it's here.

The best I've ever had in my life. You have to get one! They keep for a few days so stock up, they run out quick.

The title says it, good upscale bakery products. Croissants the way they are supposed to be. The best store bought challah in town - order a day early, they don't always have it on hand. A little more pricy but worth it

Stopped by for breakfast, pastries are good but not fluffy and very tasty. Tried croissants and pain au chocolat. Orange juice ws decent. Not cheap at all, $20 for 3 pastries and 2 orange juice..
