One of my favorite little places to stop in Cambria. The baked goods are always fresh and delicious!

Very tasty - across the street from Linn's. This is the French bakery, not the Italian bakery. I'm not sure if they provided silverware but it was still very good.

Technique shows here. Great baked goods and sandwiches. Fancy pastries and great bread. Small store but big with flavors.

Excellent coffee, pastries and pre-made sandwiches (Way better than what Starbuck's serves). Located on a main corner in town. Eat inside or on the sidewalk. Been there many times and WILL return.

The coffee and bakery are great places. The French environment, quite small, but warm and welcoming. The bakery fragrance made you go in each time you passed it. Close to the beach, great location for a morning walk, coffee and a coussaint with butter. Excellent...More

The Danish was very good. Not the best coffee. No room in store to stay and enjoy the bakery. Expensive for the quality.

Questions & Answers
TRASERDESIGNINC - Not sure why you left them a one star review just because you were inconvenienced that they were not open. Yes - a drunk plowed into their restaurant leaving MAJOR damage. They've been working on repairing the damage for months. It wasn't their fault and they should not be reviewed badly because of something that was totally out of their control! One star reviews are for restaurants that perform terribly (and should probably be shut down). Giving this restaurant a one star review when they have been getting 4-5 stars only brings their total score down and drops them lower on the list of Cambria restaurants - - - - - which will also hurt their business. Maybe you don't get how the reviews work. You should review on service, food and experience - not on the fact that they were closed when you wanted to visit - especially when it was something that could not be helped. I don't work here or know anyone that does. I've been here a few times on my annual visits to Cambria. Just think your review was very unfair!
