The inside of the croissants was buttery and the outside was flaky. They were warm and did not need butter. I think these were the best croissants I've ever had.

Good not amazing bakery, the service is better than before, though an over zealous waitress / cashier who had nothing to do with my service was very rude, asked while I had a mask on to not lower it to be able to speak to...the cashier, obviously she had nothing else to do and is powerless her only claim of fame was to do that, the waiter though was excellent and very helpful, the food is good for the USA equal to a regular bakery in France nothing extraordinary.More

Is it pastry or is it art? This bakery has the most amazing pastries that are delicious, delicate and full of subtle flavors. This could seriously be the best French inspired bakery that I have encountered in the continental United States.

Personalized service and great selection of French pastries. Stopped for a late brunch at one of the outdoor tables. The young woman who waited in me ( you order at the counter and your food is brought to you) immediately offered to brew me a...mint tea and make it into iced tea when I had asked for a decaf iced tea.More

It was just what I was hoping for. The reviews I read were correct. The almond croissant was perfect. The cappuccino great. The breakfast sandwich was very good. The staff were friendly. We sat on the patio and enjoyed it. We went right after they...opened so I am not sure how long lines may get.More

My husband and I had breakfast here while staying in Santa Barbara for a friend's wedding. It's a tiny place without much seating, 75% of which is outside, so make sure if you're planning on eating here that you're comfortable with the weather. The food...was good, but it was the pastries that really stood out to us on our visit. The coffee was also quite good, as was the fresh-squeezed orange juice. I thought our meal was a bit overpriced for what it was, but would recommend stopping by for coffee and a pastry in a heartbeat.More

We waited a good 25 minutes until the food was on oir tavle, but it was well worth it! Everything we ordered was great. The croissant sandwich, the Benedict eggs, the frenchtoast , the coffee delicious.

This is a busy and wonderful little bakery that makes the best Breakfast Sandwich I have had. Everything looked fantastic and we took a few goodies home that were delightful. Highly recommend.

I had a crossant and coffee here last week with a friend while visiting Santa Barbara from Paris where I live. The croissant was just as good as any I have had in France (and I have had many!). We sat outside in the sun...and enjoyed the relaxed vibe. Their coffee is good too.More

Wow. After traveling all through Europe, the almond croissants are really as good as they say. Flavorful and crisp on the outside with a little treasure inside. They are also quite large and I would suggest splitting. The rest of the breakfast too was fantastic!...Poached eggs 🥚 cooked exactly right!! Coffees tasted spot on! Enjoyed an outside table on a perfect day.More

I have no connection with the bakery, you'd have to call them directly. Have you asked Bouchon if they can provide a cake?
