My wife grabbed Turkey sandwiches for lunch. Price is fairly high but the quality was excellent! Highly recommend.

We ordered take out & had smoked turkey sandwiches. The flavor was excellent with generous portions of cheese & meat. Though quite crowded the service was prompt & helpful. We were so pleased to have discovered this gem.

We dropped by this charming little spot a couple of times while in the Cambria area, and picked up some freshly baked goodies. We particularly liked their pesto/cheese stick, which made a nice addition to our lunches-on-the-go.

Got here before the retailers opened (lucky me!) wanted breakfast because the hotel in San Simeon’s breakfast was pitiful. Nice, relaxed vibe in a small, but charming atmosphere. My wife had a ham and cheese croissant— super good, and the ham was definitely a cut...More

We went in to order a sandwich to go before our drive on the pacific highway. We ended up purchasing the sandwich as well as a few other pastries which looked soooo good. We were not disappointed. They were scrumptious and I will probably return...More
