We go here for the bread and rolls. But their baked items are quite special. We adore their farmer's loaf. They used to make rolls out of the same dough which were marvelous, but they unfortunately changed that recipe. The rolls are good, but not as good as they used to me. But, everything at this place makes you want to eat it!

Decided to try Pavel's after reading the reviews. So glad we did!! We didn't want to face the lines so we went late morning,and early afternoon. Selection was down by then, but everything we got was still amazing. The world's BEST BEARCLAWS! think of the best bearclaw you've ever had, and double or triple the size. The Farmer's bread is amazing!! The most delicious and lightest texture whole grain bread I've ever had. You can try it as a roll for 50 cents. The large round loaves freeze very well. Be careful, they're delicate and easily squished. If by chance they run out, or they're closed, we noticed the market across the street (Grove Market) also carries the Farmer's Bread loaves. There are no public bathrooms but there are nice bathrooms catycorner across the street at the Chamber of Commerce building. Don't overlook the coffee- my husband loved it! We've visited Pacific Grove for years and didn't know of this place. It is now on our 'must go to' list!! i can't wait to try more!

Wonderful pastries. Often unique. Everything I have tried there was wonderful. I am used to New England mom and pop places, so this was a real delight to find.

The pastries here are huge and delicious. The berry cream cheese danish, cheddar sourdough, and bear claws are personal favorites. Go early on Saturdays because they sell out early with people stocking up for Sunday and Monday (when the bakery is closed). Quality is remarkably consistent and has been for as long as I've been going there (around 10 years).

That's what you'll get. Da. Hard to stop eating them. Bearclaws the size of your head. Delicious coffee. Go across the street and get your ham and cheese like the last reviewer said. Get your bread and pastry at Pavel's Backeri.
