As there are a lot of renovations going on I guess we can excuse the place for not looking so great! The sandwiches we had were average and the service good. The atmosphere was very hectic and not relaxing at all.... Will try again once complete!

I took my friend who lived in France and can never find a good french baguette, and she was thoroughly impressed! I guess it helps that the owner is actually French, as well. ;) The sandwiches are good, and I LOOOVE the palmier cookies. I worked here way back in high school, (21 years ago!!) and its neat to see... More

This is the GO-TO for delicious coffee, wonderful breakfast pastries, and incredible lunches (sandwiches, soups and salads) at amazing prices. Great kid's sandwich offers too! Stop by for a loaf of bread or bagette for dinner. And all available to-go as well! If you want a consistently fabulous meal - to eat in or take out, breakfast or lunch, head... More

This place is the best french bakery around the area. Usually it has long lines in the mornings. Their croissants are wonderful. The cookies are yummy. The coffee is ok. Definitely try this place.

We are big fans of French baquettes, croissants and pastries, so we were delighted to hear of C'est Si Bon, which started out its success by selling them to Vietnamese stores and eateries. We popped in for a quick bite at lunch, and thoroughly enjoyed the freshness of the ingredients they packed in your choice of a baquette or croissant.... More

When I lived in Newport Beach, I loved getting bread, sandwiches and desserts from C'est Si Bon! After visiting over the holidays, it's wonderful to see that some good things don't change! We picked up some fresh rolls here that absolutely helped compliment our meal at home and we were heroes for getting them! Additionally the turkey sandwiches here are... More

When I visit my parents, I always stop by here once. Even on a busy Saturday morning, they were super quick. The only delay was trying to figure out what croissant to buy and eat while walking back to the parents. They also make decent sandwiches here too.

This placee can get busy, but the service is very friendly and moves quickly. Nice find in a strip mall. They have delicious chocolate filled croissants (and almond too)! They have a chocolate cake that is scrumptious. We recently tried the sandwiches for a boat race to Catalina. The sandwiches were a hit, particularly the curry chicken!
