French Corner Bakery was a gem of a find in this charming little town. Many choices of fresh made pastries and baked goods. Staff was friendly and helpful offering suggestions. Coffee was fresh ground and made to order. Will definitely stop here again!

Stopped in here for an early afternoon coffee and was pleasantly surprised by their sandwich options. I ordered an espresso and a pork torta. The espresso was made right there in front of me and was great to sip on while I waited for the...More

They have a nice variety of sandwiches on their fresh bread. And amazing desserts (by appearance), which I didn't manage to sample.

Although our all-time favorite 100% authentic French bakery is located in Palm Springs, this one does a great job of offering the traditional French pastry treats. A really nice extra is that this shop makes hot and cold sandwiches and functions like a little deli,...More

this is a small place with only a few tables but the food is great. I had a vegetarian sandwich and a bag of chips. There is a display of all kinds of yummy baked goodies and breads.

We visit French Corner Bakery every time we visit Cambria. Their scones and croissants are so fresh and delicious and the staff are very welcoming and friendly! A “do not miss” gem in Cambria!

We bought a bear claw and apple turnover, which were both fresh with flaky crusts and generous fillings. We also bought a package of Russian tea cookies...which were heavenly! This is a wonderful gem of a bakery.

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!
