We absolutely love this bakery! The food tasted so fresh and it was truly the highlight of our trip we would recommend to anyone! Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience. We love the macaroons!

The croissants, especially the one with cream cheese filling are divine. The mini quiches are super yummy. One had sundried tomatoes and was scrumptious but the standard ham and cheese was yummy too. The thumbprint type cookies with fruit filling were also fabulous. And, the prices were fair. Definitely worth the visit!

Patisserie Bechler is a local favorite for the best in Alsace-Lorraine cuisine. It opened in 1984. Chef Bechler can thank the mother of his children for giving this place the warmth and feel of the area he calls his homeland in France, complete with a stork on the roof! I remember when the wall mural was being done to depict... More

Was visiting from Florida and saw this old shabby building with a B on, with a sign that read Bakery Open. Being a sort of world baked goods connoisseur I said even though building looks dumpy better check it out. To my amazement when inside this was the real deal even better than Paris and I am in Northern California.... More

On our last trip to Monterey Bay, we got a tip from some of the locals to try Patisserie Bechler. Fantastic! True bakeries with their own specialties are becoming more and more scarce. This bakery offers authentic French pastries for breakfast and a delicious lunch menu for the afternoon. If you are headed to Point Lobos or the Carmel Mission... More

Afternoon coffee and cakes were delicious and tied one over until a late dinner. The cakes were sweet and the coffee was fresh - just what the doctor ordered.

Bechler's is well-known to people who live on the Monterey Peninsula, but it's a bit off the beaten path for tourists. It's not only a great place for pastries of all types, including its famous cakes, but also for lunch. Tasty sandwiches, soups and salads are served in a "garden room" complete with large fountain and lots of light. If... More

We typically have breakfast at Bechler (i.e. pastry and coffee/hot chocolate) every morning when in Monterey/Pacific Grove (approx. 2X/yr). Excellent AM type pastry + excellent European style baked goods. Lunch is a very, very nice selection of salads, sandwiches and soup. Never over-crowded. An outstanding choice
