“Just a Great Bakery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

A wonderful bakery, always full of clients eager to get their quick meals, bread and pastries. The breakfast biscuit sandwiches are very good, and so are their croissant sandwiches. Gayle's makes a terrific Francese loaf, both in its traditional version and a crustier option (cooked for a shorter amount of time in a hotter oven). The pastries and cakes also stand out. One of our top options for a quick breakfast or lunch in the area.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

This is a great place for coffee. Deceptively large the multiple counter service appears confusing at first but the helpful staff will explain how it all works.

Busy at peak times they manage to serve everyone and do it with a smile.

Excellent pastries (of course) and good coffee.

“The Gayle's experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Always a nice vibe! There's a bustle at Gayles that's always fun and stimulating.
I live up the street, so frequently meet for tea, lunch, desert. Love that you can
also avoid the lines by purchasing at the coffee bar. It has a great community
feeling. I always run into friends there. It's a great place to get your coffee and
then walk the 5 minutes to the beach! As other reviewers are saying.. tons of
choices. Try the diablo chicken, the gaspacho, and the spinach gorgonzola
pasta. The blue plate dinner specials are always great too! Have fun perusing
there. So many delicious choices!
